Thank you for visting my page. It was my pleasure to work you on the bands.

I was first licensed  as a Novice in March of 1977 as WD0AQC in Burlington, Iowa at ripe old age of 15. My first rig was a Heathkit DX60B, HG-10B VFO and a Hammerlund HQ-170 receiver.  Later I was able to upgrade my station to a Kenwood TS-520s and a 2 element Gem Quad up 30 feet.  Then I was hooked on DX.  I worked mostly on 15 meters.

I have been an Extra class since 1988.  I enjoy CW, SSB and RTTY. Mostly DXing and communtiy service are my main goals for ham radio.

My current station consists as follows: Icom IC-7851, IC-7800. Optibeam OB17-4 up 72 feet, Hygain DB1217 up 88 feet. JK 30-1 80 feet. 3 switched slopers for 80/75 meters. Also running Acom 2000A amp. Drake MN-2000 and Palstar HF-AUTO tuners. 2 Timewave Navigators for RTTY and digi modes. Array Solutions Six pak antennas switch. Green Heron rotor control and Prosistel PST 61D rotor. Zero Five 43 foot 10-160 vertical.

 

                     Novice 1977 -  1979

                     General 1979 - 1988

                     Advanced 1988 - 1988

                     Extra 1988 - Present

 

 

I also have been running a simplex IRLP node since 2005. Embedded node, Motorola GM300 running 25 watts to the antenna which is mounted 30 feet above the ground. Which gives me 20 miles radius range now.

The node number is 3835 146.565 mhz 100 PL tone.

I curently work for Access Energy Cooperative (Rural Electric Coop) in Mount Pleasant, Iowa for the last 31 years.  I am the Jack of

all trades master at none for the engineering deptment.  My main job is working on System mapping /GIS and SCADA, staking power line.

I live in a small town of 103 people and 42 homes my neighbors call our place Aluminumville.

My other hobby is cruising around on my motorcycle.

See Ya on the bands or when I am traveling around the country.

Here's a fun thing we do for the Music Boosters in Mount Pleasant  http://www.arrl.org/ham-radio-keeps-funds-flowing
