Ham Member Lookups: 13945


Hello to all :

I was born and raised here in Arizona . I became interested in amateur radio back in the 1970's when the Heathkit Company was in full swing. Part of my interest to get involved into amateur radio was fueled from my interest in electronics and antenna design and construction. All of my initial amateur radio projects were Heathkit kits and my first ham radio was a Heathkit HW-101. The antennas I used for amateur radio were homebrew yagi's when aluminum was cheap and easily available then. I remember how great the 10 meter band was back then working into Europe. One of my old call signs was WA7WLD. I was never satisfied with my General Class license and always wanted to be an Extra Class license holder , so I finally succeeded in obtaining my Extra Class license and obtained a call sign that I liked which is the one I currently have WA7M. I am currently active on all of the HF bands and love my ham radio hobby.

Pictured above is Hajime Konishi and his call sign is 7M4UDC : I had the honorable pleasure of meeting with Konishi-san here in Arizona when he was on his return leg from visiting many areas in Arizona : this was my very first EYEBALL QSO with an amateur radio operator from another country !!


Pictured above is my good friend JOAN in Catalonia : his country is struggling to gain its own independence : check out his QRZ webpage under his call sign EA3BOX : also is a picture of Joan working on his OPTI-BEAM antenna :


Pictured above is my good friend DON - WA2TPU in New York : he has many accomplishments and awards working QRP (low power between 1 to 5 watts) :


Here are some pictures of my three antennas that are currently in use : the first pic shows all three antennas (8 element log / 3 element 40 meter yagi / hy-tower vertical) : second pic (close-up) shows the 40 meter yagi on 71 foot tower : third pic (close-up) shows the 8 element KLM log periodic on 51 foot tower: I use the Hy-Tower vertical for 75/80 meters :

The 40 meter yagi use to be a Hy-Gain 2 element that was modified by me into a 3 element yagi on a 34 foot boom : I removed the wire linear loading and replaced the linear loading sections with the HIGH-Q COILS from M2 Antenna Systems :  I want to thank MIKE - K6MYC for helping me design and compute the modifications : this is a rather inexpensive way to upgrade these cheap 2 element (older) 40 meter yagis into a much more efficient and cleaner looking antenna :
