Thanks for visiting.  I use my nickname, "Mac", so don't be confused if I tell you that on the air. First licensed in 1978 as KA8BXM and after moving around the country for many years came back to West Virginia and eventually the vanity call W8LMG.  I live in Seebert, Pocahontas County, West Virginia, grid square EM98vd (2,070' ASL).  The picture above is my home which faces north. 

The station in the cabin loft consists of an Icom IC-7600, Heil PR 781 mic, Ameritron ALS-600 and LDG AT-1000 ProII.  

The secondary station in my living room, next to the wood stove (and recliner), is an IC-7300, Heil iCM mic, Ameritron ALS-600 and LDG AT-600 ProII.  

I also use an SDRPlay RSP1 with SDR Console Ver 3.0 software as a panadapter and a second 32" monitor for Log40M. 

HF antennas include a NA4RR Hex Beam, 20, 15, 12, 10 and 6 meters, 17 meter Yagi (3 elements on 20' boom), 75 meter dipole, 80 meter inverted L and a 160 meter full wave loop.  80 meter BOG (235'). 

I operate 160 thru 6 meters on the IC-7600. In addition to SSB and CW,  I enjoy FT8 and WSPR using WSJT-X v1.8.0 and JTAlert software (no interface required).  Received digital mode signals are uloaded to HamspotsPskreporter and WSPRnet.  Work digital modes on 160, 80, 60, 40, 30, 20, and 17 meters.  I often run WSPR with 1 watt when not in the shack look on the WSPRnet site.

Mobile operation is with a Yaesu FT-857D, Little Tarheel II and TurboTuner, 6 thru 75 meters. 

 

         ​  All contacts are logged using Log40M and are uploaded to QRZ, LOTW and Clublog. I had so many BOGUS requests from people not in my log for confirmation on eQSL that I finally deactivated the account. If you need confirmation and do not use LOTW send me a card and I will return one. SASE DX only.

       


 I am a Vietnam Vet (1966-1970) and life member of the VFW 

  

73 and Good DX !
