Welcome to the WA6KJV page on QRZ.  I operate from Mt. Shasta, California.  We'er in the mountains about 3800 feet.  I retired in 2008 from a career in disability services at Shasta College.  While instructing and advocating for/with people with disabilities, I earned a doctorate in education. 

Home rig for HF is a Yaesu FTDX 3000.  Most of the time it feeds directly into a MFJ-1799 for all bands 80 to 2.  (I have a 20 meter dipole stapled to the ceiling in the shack.  It comes in handy during intense snow storms that occur here in Mt. Shasta.)  The vertical is mounted 10 feet above the ground.  The MFJ-1799 is comprised of spokes that must be shortened and lengthened to SWR perfection.  No small trick.  To help with this I employ an MFJ  986 Differtial T Tuner.  Also, I use an MFJ-269C antenna analyzer.  The shack amplifier is an Ameritron AL-811.  It gives me a little punch when needed.  When operating in digital modes, I use a Yaesu SCU-14 USB interface.  The backup rig is an FTDX 1200. 

In the software department I use Ham Radio Delux version 6.4.0.780.  The HP laptop uses Windows 10.

It all works together and keeps me out of trouble.

For 2 meters I'm using a Yeasu FT 2900 that I won in a raffle with our Siskiyou County Amateur Radio Association.  It runs up to 75 watts into Comet GP-3 Dual Band Ground Plane mounted on the roof.   

The Mount Shasta Amateur Radio Association, my local club, provides communications support for running, biking and swimming events.  I use a Yeasu VR-7R HT during our times with the atheletes.  We use our local club repeaters on 2 and 440.

I'm also a member of the Siskiyu County Amateur Radio Association known as SCARA.

When operating I use SSB, CW, PSK31, JT9, JT65 and recently FT8.  I would like to try RTTY, but I don't know how to configure it with my equipment

I just got relicensed in the fall of 2012.  This is after a long interlude of doing other things.  I was originally licensed in 1960 when I was 14 years old, but got away from ham radio.  Then, I met some locals here in Mt. Shasta who showed how I could get back on the air.  I love it.
