Hello and welcome to my site.
I have been an Amateur Radio operator since 1979 and still enjoy working new
people and countries. My original call was KA4HWX.
I am the president of the Northwest Indiana DX Club. Our website is at http://nwidxclub.weebly.com/
DXCC Honor Roll before I become an SK is my main goal. Maybe I will make
it yet, if more rare DXpeditions are conducted.
Amateur Radio Operating Activities: DXCC; active DX chaser; HF contester;
active in public service communications; and an early packet radio user; enjoy
BPSK 31 and RTTY.
I am working on my 5-Band DXCC and need some more confirmed QSOs to fill out
80 meter band.
Over 300 confirmed and now need DXpeditions to get more.
10-10 number #26862 and usually on 10 meters when it is open.
Since putting up a tri-bander and purchasing the Yaesu FT 2000D I have worked
more DX than before those two were bought. I enjoy the radio very much, as it
has the ability to filter out more noise than the other radios I own. The 200
watts help out too. One thing for sure is you must read the manual to know how
to set everything up.
The newest addition is a Kenwood TS-2000 that I purchased at Dayton 2011.
Even though it is hardly used, mostly on 2 and 6 meters, it is like new. Not
many hours on it. I bet it has been used only a few hours at the most.
I live in Starke County in Indiana. It is a small county with very few hams
active on HF. If you need Starke County, County hunters can contact me via email
and we will set up a schedule.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you
want a schedule with me or have a question. I am always available for help when
it comes to Ham Radio.
