My father ,who is W0DE was the key factor in stirring my interest in Ham Radio.My mother and wife are also licensed hams.

 

 

 

The Main Radio is an Icom 756 PRO3.There`s a Kenwood TS830s on the desk also. For mobile and field use I have an IC7000 or 706mk2g that i take out. Power is normally 100w ,but there`s a Kenwood TL922 for ruff net nites and some 160m contesting. I prefer to use low power and do 99% of the time.

My Antenna farm utilizes a 60ft Crankup tower with wire antennas  at this time..2m-20element beam on top. Inverted Vees at 55ft for 160,80 and 40. A short 21ft tower holds a TA33 tribander.

I use a 40-80m delta loop at 25ft for local work and my net control duties on Missouri traffic nets. The loop also works well on many other bands especially 30m. It`s a version of the German Quad that uses a 450ohm stub in the feed. sorta strange but it works.

There`s also a Hygain Hytower in the backyard that changed my mind on vertical antennas. A great antenna!

On topband I have the Vee @ 55ft and an inverted L @ 50ft vertical plus a 530' beverage for ears.... More ears than mouth hihi!

Let`s see ...oh yeah there`s a Six meter ,three element beam on a tripod on top of my two-story home for some magic-band fun.

Antennas change around alot here,it`s part of the fun and amazement that can be found in this great hobby.

If you notice a pic of me will always have a morse key of some kind in it, cw is my choice of modes these days although I`m no stranger to a mic .

Digital modes look fun and I have the gear for it but I`ll have to learn to type before doing much ragchewing or the receiveing end of the QSO will likely fall asleep !HIHI!

Thanks for looking me up and if it`s because we just made contact or are about to I enjoy sharing pics and info with you. Best 73 and gud DX

I really enjoy mobile operating , especially in State QSO Parties ! Here I am getting set to go for Kansas QSO Party 2014.

In 2014 I operated in Missouri , Kansas and Arkansas QSO Parties. I did a Multi-op run in Arkansas with  K5YAA Jerry in his KW mobile set-up. Jerry is a awesome OP and has a super mobile rig. We shared op duty and made Highest Overall Score in the contest !

Iwanted to go into Iowa for the 2014 IAQP but it falls on the same weekend as a local hamfest that is a favorite event.

Here`s K5YAA and KI0I after the ARQP 2014. This QSL Card I created with K2RFP`s QSL Maker.

Below is the card I created for the 2015 running of Missouri QSO Party. 1150 QSO`s logged with many friends from

most of the states and a lot of DX countries. The highlight had to be working OM2VL in Slovakia on 80m CW from the

mobile , 100w and a Hustler 80m resonator !! Although his Superstation did all the work HIHI. TNX Laci!
