I was first licensed in 1967 as a novice (WN1MXB). Later that year, I obtained my general and advanced license on the same day at the FCC office in Boston, MA (WA1MXB). Later, I changed my call to a 2x2 (KA1IB).  I upgraded to extra class in December 2010 and later changed my call to K1PGS.  This picture is by the fireplace in the shack.

 

My antenna for 20M thru 6M is a K4KIO hex beam. I installed it in June 2013, father's day, with the help of my oldest daughter, Amy. The hex beam replaced a Mosley CL33 tri-bander that was installed in 1974, when I put up the tower after building my house.

I am a fan of wire antenna fed with home made open wire line through 4:1 baluns.  I use about 20 feet of coax from the Palstar AT2KD tuner to feed each balun.

My 80M delta loop is a triangle with one point facing down toward the ground. The top wire is up about 50 feet, hung between two pine trees. I feed the loop halfways up on the southern leg with open wire line. 

I also have a 260' dipole antenna.  All wire antenna are home made.

From left to right on the desk you have a ICOM-7300, a YAESU  FTdx-3000, and a ICOM-7600. Above and next to the monitor is a AMERITRON AL-80B amplifier. Next a PALSTAR AT2KD tuner, the ROTOR Control and a ICOM-746.

I use LOG4OM for my electronic logbook.  I enjoy all the HF bands when propergation permits. In the evening, I work 75M and 160M.

I always QSL via LOTW and eQSL. I will send you a paper QSL card if requested.

 

 

 

 

This picture was taken just before retiring from the Freetown Police Department after 35 years working as a reserve officer. 

I also spent 17 years as the elected Town Treasurer. I was elected Selectman in 2011 and completed six years on the Board of Selectman and finally retired in 2017.

 

 

A PROUD MOMENT!

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary crew after rescuing three men in Buzzards Bay waters on 26 August 2009. (Rod Thomas, Leo Lake, Bob Joseph [KC1BEV]  and yours truely!)

 

Later, the crew received the 2010 AFRAS Silver Medal Award in Washington DC.

 

 

Here is a picture of my shack in 2007. Amateur Radio, in my opinion, is a great hobby.  73's and Good DX to all!!!
