Station W9RAC


find me at 3630...3762...7213...1962

We had this home built to our liking 18 years ago. It is located in the center of 15 ac of mature forest.  My antennas are running thru the trees giving me many options.  Since we are rural the receiver noise level has always been a NON factor here, S 2/3.

Here is my station. It consist of; Kenwood TS 990s, Yaesu FT 2000, Alpha 8410 amplifier, Ameritron 811H amplifier, Alpha 4510A watt meter, PalStar HF Auto tuner, Nye Viking MB-N-A tuner. PalStar DL2K dummy load.. Audio gear includes Y2IHY Iplus, W2IHY EQplus, W2IHY 8 band EQ,  The transmitter antenna's are, 160 meter half wave flat top dipole at 80 feet, 75/80 half wave dipole at 80 feet, 40 meter half wave dipole at 60, 20 meter half wave dipole at 40 feet. Switching is accomplished by way of DX Engineering CC-8A  remote. A Electo Voice RE 27, EV RE-320 and Shure SM58 wireless are the microphones controlled by a Radical Gold Digger and Sennheiser HD 650's and 140 wireless are my headphones.

Most of the radio talking I have done has been on 160/80 meters.  I am just recently beginning to realize the possibilities of the 40 meter band in the daytime.  I hope to see you there!

I have been playing with radios for many a year.  Over that time I have meet many interesting people and have made many friends many who I would have never have met otherwise. It's a great hobby, hope to QSO with you also, drop me a line!


Amateur ​Shortwave Radio

Over the years I have managed to accomplish a couple of different Martial Arts styles, RyuKyu Kempo & Hapkido.... along with motorcycle riding,(started riding in 1962)...bicycling which I average 900 miles a year. I play racquetball a couple times a week. I like to think I'm doing Okay at 64! I've been retired for 6 years.

Alarm Systems

​​​​2015 Dayton Hamvention!!

I had a chance to make a trip to Dayton this year, had a great time. Went Friday May 15th and was escorted by Joe KB8QID and Loren WD5HIO. Joe is in the front (right), Loren in rear (left). I generally get a chance to talk with these two a few times a week, +/-  7.213 day or 3.865 evening. We always have a great time and Friday was certainly no exception. Two of the finest amateurs I have run across!! Stop in and join in sometime!!

Living in a rural area we have many alarm systems, most are VERY loud, some are manual, some are not. This is one of the door sensors. 


Invitations Are Needed
