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.For mobile and field use I have an IC7100 or 706mk2g that i take out. Power is normally 100w ,but there`s an Icom PW-1 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..a 2m/440 Vertical sits on top. Inverted Vees at 55ft for 80, 40 and 30m. A short 35ft 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 a bazooka fed coax inverted L @ 55ft vertical and a K9AY loop looks NE . In winter I roll out a 200` wire on the ground to the NW which helps greatly with west coast and JA.

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!

I`ve begun the FT8 venture that is all the craze now, just getting familiar and have made a handful of qso`s with it. More activity will come as I fine tune things. 

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 !

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!
