Yes that's my real call sign and yes I am no longer in Alaska.


I lived in Alaska for over 40 years. Finally age and health drove me back south to a warm climate.

QSLs logged prior to March 27th 2024 were from Alaska, since then all QSLs are from Texas.


Home station is using a 7 Band OCF dipole for now its about 20 feet up.  An FT-897D is my temp base rig until my household goods catch up.

Eventually I will back to my FTDX10 Radio and the 811H Amp on a loop. New house has just enough Oak Trees to allow for a Loop soon.  Hope to raise a tri bander as well by Summers end.

Mobile now includes a Jayco Motorhome.
Aboard that is both an FT-897 and a FT-857.
FT-897 is used when stationary using either a OCF dipole or military 33 foot Vertical.
FT-857 is for mobile operations using a modified CB whip (extended to 12 feet) and an SGC 2020 Autotuner.
