As a kid I became friends with the local TV repairman who was a ham and had a station in the back of his shop.  I spent many an afternoon listening to his HRO 50.  I was originally licensed as a Novice in January 1990, immediately got the upgrade bug, worked around the clock on my code speed and passed the General a few weeks later.  I passed the Extra Exam Friday December 9, 2016.

I have been enjoying this hobby for over 25 years!

Previous call(s) KBØFQM, WØDIT.

Rigs include:

ICOM IC-7300

Ten-Tec Jupiter 538

Yaesu FT-1000MP

Yeasu FT101E

Yaesu FT101EE

Amplifiers:  Ameritron ALS-600 with LDG AT1000ProII autotuner, Ameritron AL-811 with MFJ-989D tuner

Station logging done with N3FJP ACL.  Station computers are HP Z400 Workstations with Quad Core Xeon processors, 8 gig ram and SSD boot drives, running Windows 10.  These computers were purchased on EBay from refubishers for approx $170 each and are basically in new looking condition, they are more than adequate for Amateur Radio software use.

Antennas include a 80M doublet fed with balanced coax at 40 feet and a coaxial dipole (double Bazooka) for 40 meters also at 40 feet. I also throw up my MFJ-2982 "Feather Lite" 31 foot portable vertical at times.  I frequently get questions about the balanced coax feed for the doublet so I've added a drawing with notes explaining what I am using.  Works very well for me.


I was awarded the Rookie of the year in the KSQP in 2016.

I will be operating with the 1x1 call KØK this year in the Kansas QSO Party.  http://www.ksqsoparty.org/
