ABOUT KD5KC
All QSOs uploaded to LoTW. QSL direct or Bureau OK, no $$$ or stamps needed. A self-addressed envelope is much appreciated - it keeps me from making errors and speeds my reply. QSL cards for KD9KC, DL/KD9KC and OK/KD9KC are still available if needed. E-mail me for details on claiming contacts for the older QSL cards.
Photo above: Much of my operating is done as a portable station, mostly SOTA oriented. This photo, which became my QSL card was taken at Manzano Mountain, 10,098 feet ASL in near Los Lunas in Central New Mexico.

It was a lot of fun.  If I missed uploading you in the log, please contact me so we can resolve the ptoblem, likely my typo.
Our home remodeling project is completed, and as empty more boxes and re-assemble my station, I am making some improvements, doing it the way I wish I had the first time.  Here is the current configuration.
Photo above: This is the main station. A Yaesu FTdx5000MP at 200 watts. The microphone has been converted to a modern unit compatible with the Yaesu. This radio is the finest receiver I have ever used or owned.
 
Photo above: K4KIO 6-band Hex-Beam at 30 feet for 20m through 6m, 6m vert, 2m-70cm Yagis, 23cm and 13cm satellite antennas. Also used, a T2FD at 50 feet for 160m-80m-60m-40m-30m, and for SWL.

Photos above: This is KD5KC/pm - (pm = Pedestrian Mobile). I have worked hundreds of contacts and some great DX on this /pm rig (DJ, HA, OE, G4, KH6, JA, VK, HK, PY, including HK0NA and TO3x). In 2012 I entered Field Day as KD9KC 1C-WTX. I was the #9 1C in the USA running 10 watts. I averaged 20 MPG, that is... I walked 20 miles and drank a gallon of Iced Tea. Operating and construction details upon request to my E-mail.
Above - 1976 A. M. General DJ-5D jeep.  It wasn't a 4X4, but it was light-weight and powewrful.  The wide tires floated on the sand just fine and it worked out well in West Texas and the Desert South West.
This is the "NEW" JEEP, a 2015 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock.  If you want something more capable than this one, it will not come from the showroom floor.  It will be an after-market purchase or a build-it-yourself deal.  V-6 power, 5-speed Automatic, 4:1 transfer case, 4.10:1 Dana-44 axles F and R, with a 60:1 crawl ratio.  It was worth waiting for.  Antennas from left to right, AM/FM/CB antenna, 70cm antenna on windshield, 2m antenna on windshield, APRS 1/4-wave antenna on center tail light stalk in the rear.
Radios.  Top-left, ICOM IC-2730 dual-band 144/440 FM V/UHF (main chassis under seat), to the right is a Stratus-7 Sirius Satellite Radio Receiver.  Below that is an Insane Audio JK1001 Android computer, it does everything an android Smart phone can do and more, (except make calls).  It has true 3D off-road navigation, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and interfaces with the APRS transceiver via Bluetooth for on-screen APRS mesaging.  Not shown are the Byonics MTT4B APRS radio (mounted in the rear) and the Cobra 75WXST (not connected except on club trail rides).
Above is a short video of a JEEP expedition to Aden Crater, an extinct volcano in the Southern New Mexico Desert.

The photo was taken on 08 Oct 2016.  Dakota was 10 months old, and 130 pounds.  A big girl already.  We were at the Mesilla Valley Kennel Club dog show in Las Cruces New Mexico.  We didn't expect much more than the experience.  Dakota did fine.

 

A work in progress.
