At The Tone, The Time Is:


My favorite hobby is amateur radio. I especially enjoy HF radio, and within that, contesting. Since the contesting bug has bitten me, I haven't been the same! I am also a computer junkie. My wife Sharon doesn't like my hobbies very much, as they always keep me occupied! Below is a description of my radio room and my antenna setup.

My "Ham Shack" is comprised of:

Kenwood TS-950SD - Icom 751 (Backup rig) - Ameritron AL-80B amplifier - Yaesu FT-2500 Packet radio - Yaesu FT-8100 144/440mhz - Kenwood TM-733 144/440mhz - Kantronics KAM+ - Homebuilt P-II 550mhz 13.0 gig computer - Bencher paddles - Heil headset

My 40' tower is filled with:

Force 12 C-3 @ 43' - Inverted-V's for 40/80 meters - Sloper for 160 - Comet CX-333 Tribander (144/220/440) - Cushcraft 144/440 mini-beam

This is our club's Field Day antennas - We operated K9PC in 1-A. We put up a 283' dipole, Hustler 4 band vertical, 13b2 2 meter beam, and an A50-3s for 6 meters.

Here's Larry, KC9IU, putting up a 2/440 antenna on the top of Mike's (KF9WW) tower above the 4 element tribander.
