I started my ham career, late1950's, licensed as a Novice,WV2HMM, I am now an Extra Class (20 WPM). Back when I was a novice, I used a single tube (6L6) 80 meter transmitter. It was built from the ARRL Handbook, it was on wooden rails, and the coils were wound around nails. It was very efficient, I was provided a real nice QSL from the FCC for a GREAT 40 meter signal; but unfortunately it was outside of the US band. I then moved on to WWII ARC-5 equipment, Heathkit stuff; then the new stuff, Kenwood, Icom and Yaesu.

Present Station:

I have settled on a Yaesu FT-950, and an Ameritron AL-80B which helps to warm the feet of the birds that sit on my antennas. The Icom IC-718 and Yaesu FT-757 are now back-up rigs. I use Kenwood Mobile rigs for 2 meters, which are in the cars and Pick-up truck; I also use one in the shack, TM-G707.


160/80/40/30/17/12: ALL are "Inverted Vees", one for each band, at 30 feet.

20/15/10: Hy-Gain TH3-MK4, 3 element beam, at 35 feet, tree cover is to much to get any higher.  (XYL won't let me cut trees, yes I begged a lot, hi hi)

10: Homebrew Ground plane, at 16 feet

6: Homebrew 3 element beam at 30 feet. 

2: Homebrew 5/8 vertical at 50 feet


DXing, I attained "DXCC Honor Roll" in June of 2014. Now I need 5 more DXCC Entities to have them all. It's much harder now,  as most of those needed Entities will have to be DXpeditions.

My other hobbies include shooting/hunting (pistol, rifle, shotgun), fishing, horse back riding (I own my own horse), caring for the XYL and she me (no we are not sickly, just having fun together. Arguing is also fun, making up is lots of fun too... hi hi).

NPOTA: During 2016, I chased the NPOTA Stations.  I have 414 confirmations via LoTW.    Thanks Activators...

FT8: Please check 28.074 MHz


I was one of the early members of the LarkField Amateur Radio Club (LARC). Since leaving that club, I became one of the founding members of the Symbol Technologies Amateur Radio Club (STARC).

We have 2 married daughters, one in Texas, the other here on Long Island. We have 4 Grand Children; 3 girls and one boy. My daughter in Texas has 2 girls, my daughter here, on Long Island, has a girl and a boy.

I am very lucky enough to have found a gal who has similar interests (NO she is not a ham, and doesn't want to be one). But so far she has put up with me, ALL my antennas, and ALL the squacking radios in each car or truck, for over 50 years.

It sure doesn't seem that long...

It is not the class of license the Amateur holds but the class of the Amateur that holds the license.


Me and Claire the "Boss Lady" (XYL)

(QSL via W2SBL)


20 meter operator of N1Y , Sept 10-11, 2011

(QSL via W2SBL)



Information: ATNO All Time New One  (This means the contact is the First QSO with the DXCC Entity, and not one of  Multi-Band QSOs)

I support and advocate the "DX Code Of Conduct"

DX Code Of Conduct:

  • I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
  • I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
  • I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
  • I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
  • I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
  • I will always send my full call sign.
  • I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
  • When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
  • I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
  • I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.

Good Heath and Good DX to all


Charlie, WA2HMM
