First licensed in 1972 as WN8NML. Other calls previously held are WD8DUD, KA9THA, KD9VD, KE8EZ, WV8X and finally W8JH since 2004.
Current station is a kit built Elecraft K3 and a kit built KPA-500. I have a Cushcraft MA-5B on a tubular crank up tilt over tower.
I also have built an Elecraft KX3 for portable and SOTA work.
I need 20 some countries confirmed on 160 to finish off DXCC there. The rest of the bands (except 6m) are completed with a little over 300 entities confirmed overall (mixed).
The latest addition here is a Hardrock 50 amplifier for the KX3 (also kit built). I am experimenting with a telescoping vertical (MFJ-1979) with two radials that I reel in/out of a fly fishing reel (kind of like the CrankIR idea for the radials). That will work from 20m-6m. I also have a MFJ 933-B loop tuner and I'm trying a few different sized loops made out of 3/8" copper tubing. I should get 2 or 3 bands per loop size. I hope to do some side by side WSPR measurements at 5W output to help me choose between the two. Eventually plan to get some more SOTA activity going (one activation so far).
