오늘은 저녁을 먹고나서 무전기 전원을 켜고 3.796에서
수신을 하니 W6UC ROBER 과 일본국이 막 교신을 끝
그래서 조금 있다가 CQ 하니 W6UC/W3BS/JA1MSS/KJ6NZ/
JH1UBK/W9UCW 등과 교신을 했다.
W9UCW 는 미국 동부쪽인데 이친구는 작년에 만나고 2번쩨
요즘에는 KST 7시경부터 8시까지 잠시 좋은 것 같다.
My XYL Joyce, WB9NUL and I live in the tropical south tip of Texas near the border with Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico.
We live in a rural farming area. The main crops here are citrus, sugar cane, cotton, sesame, vegetables, corn & sorghum.
Our ham station is in the northeast corner of our great room next to a sliding door out to the lanai and courtyard.
We use an Elecraft K3s transceiver with diversity receive capability. We have an Elecraft P3 panadapter & a KPA500 amp
plus a Tokyo Hi-Power 2.5 kfx amp. We also have a TenTec Hercules 420 solid state amp. We have a number of QRP rigs
for low power fun and a third independent rig on the desk consisting of an IC7000 and MFJ993 autotuner.
The main antennas are a 565' loop at 60' and a top loaded 82' vertical, Minooka Special style. A remotely controlled
matcher/tuner at the base allows the vertical to be used on all HF bands. We use an MFJ998 autotuner for the
open-wire fed loop on all bands. We have a small 6 meter tuner to use the loop on that band.

My XYL has an IC706 and homebrewed antennas on her Chevy Equinox. I have an IC706 and Flying Saucer antennas
on my old Grand Marquis. Shown is the 7 band stack, 10 thru 40 meters.
A secondary station with a TS850s and a TenTec Hercules amp is in a seperate building near the antenna test stand.
