Hello fellow hams. My handle is Joe and I operate from both my  primary home in Prescott Arizona and my condo in Gulf Shores Alabama.  I'm using Collins S-Line equipment with a 80 meter horizontal loop in Arizona and small  magnetic loops in Gulf Shores. Here you see me with the 40/20 meter loop. The smaller 20/17/15/12 meter loop is shown  deployed vertically.



These magentic loops are based on K8NDS designs. However the loops are ultra lite using styrofoam frames and are designed to be deployed or stowed quickly.  Here you can see the 40/20 meter loop stowed.



Back some 50 years ago, I was a Boy Scout in New Jersey and became interested in ham radio while attaining a radio merit badge. This led to my novice and then general license, WB2PYK. I was helped along by radio and TV engineers who worked in the big commercial stations of the time and owned to die for Collins gear that I could never afford.  My first transmitter was a homebrew 807 CW rig for 80m. Anyway, I let my license expire while I went to the University of Alabama to get my electrical engineering degrees.  Now after all these years and a very fulfilling career with the defense industry and later with CDMA infrastructure products, I am now retired and spend part of the year here in Alabama.

In addition to the KWM-2A and 30L-1 I use HDSDR with SDR dongle as a pan adapter and for tuning the loops.



Thanks to Sal K6SAL and the 7155 group, Jeannie and I are entering a new phase of our retirement with our new to us RV.



Here we are at lake Tahoe.



Some picutures of the Scorpion screwdriver. Sal and Davy installing the antenna mount.  Is this good looking or what!!                                           

In addition to my interest in ham radio and repairing and maintaining my Collins gear, I enjoy trap and skeet shooting, astronomy and model railroads. I hope to QSO with many of you while I explore the HF bands.

My railroad consists of 3 loops and supports O-Scale and O-Gauge equipment. The engines are all radio controlled and equiped with speed control to maintine speed on grades. Some equipment dates from the mid 50s from my childhood.
