QCWA # 32121

I was first licensed as WN9LHL in 1964. I got my ticket again as WD8QIB in the 70's while living in Columbus, Ohio. We moved to Texas in 1986 and I changed to a 5th area call. I now have an Extra.

My main HF rig is an Elecraft K3 I "built". HF antennas include a 75-meter dipole at 35 feet, and a self-supporting 39' vertical, both home made and fed with ladder-line. I have a Kenwood TS-480 and a 40-meter dipole in my electroncs R&D room.

A Kenwood TS-2000 is used on 144 and 440 MHz FM & SSB and sometimes HF. I have an Alinco DR-235 for 222 MHz FM. A Comet CX-333 at 28 feet is used on FM with a CFX-324A Triplexer.

I often work QRP SSB with the K3 or sometimes a FT-817, Flex 1500 or my new Elad FDM Duo.. You can often catch me working QRP on the WAS/DX nets when conditions are good.

My mobile rig is an Icom IC-706MKIIG and Hustler antennas.

I was a frequent 3905 Century Club Net Control Station, but am on vacation at present, although you may catch me as a sub. Watch for my QSO Fiesta!
