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.




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!!!
