I've put a 10M beacon on 28.278.8 MHz, listen if you get a chance and send signal report if you hear it! The beacon is HTX-100 running 5 or 25 watts into dipole at 40 feet in my attic.

I have been a ham since I was 16 in 1976 as WN4OTD. In 1977 my parents boughta new FT101EE which I am still have. I brought the rig out of retirement after several years of moving around in January 2009. In June 2009 I bought an ICOM IC746 and really like this radio and added a CW filter which is a must andimproved reception. Computer interface and HRD5 is great tool. This is my primary rig now!

In July 2010 I bought a Kenwood TS130S at the Indy hamfest for $125 to use as mobile/portable rig. I have made many mobile contacts on 40M which has been a pleasure. I'll be putting different hamsticks on to try other bands soon.

My attic antenna farm consists of a 80M dipole folded around like a loop with the far side cut open. It goes around the inside of the attic at head height, a 40M dipole that is up in the very top of the attic about 20' off the attic floor running north/south. A 30M dipole running east/west. A single element 20/15/10 tribander on 16 foot pole. THe 10M beacon dipole, and a 17M dipole at headheight. I have built a 3 element 6M yagi and 5 element 2M yagi. My Diawa CNW419 tuner helps load the different antennas and I work on all bands from 160M to 2M.

I normally run 100 watts.I will always QSL and love to exchange QSL cards. I'm uploading all to eQSL and LOTW. I especially like LOTW. I have DXCC and WAS. I have 250 countries worked and 232 confirmed as of 2/3/2013. I work CW almost exclusively and am a member of FISTS and SKCC.

I listen and sometime talk on 146.52 and 146.88 W9RCA rpt.

I an an electrical engineer working on wireless and radar projects. Look here for my latest product: http://www.mssedco.com/intersector_sensor.htm

I grew up near Knoxville, TN and still miss trout fishing in the Smokies. I moved to Indianapolis in 1983 and been here since.

Interesting fact: We lived in Belgium from 2002 through 2003 near Antwerpen. Stella, chocolate and waffles!

Thanks and 73...hpe to cu on the air soon!
