I have been a ham radio operator since 1964. Previous calls held:
WN8OQJ, WA8UUY, AA8UUY
As an avid DX’er I have operated from 5 different DX locations (personally making over 1,000 QSO’s from each location) under the following calls:
W8TN/6Y5, ZF2EK, W8TN/VP9, XX9TN, FO0XX (‘85)
I am on the DXCC Honor Roll (SSB) and hold WAS on 50 MHz.
My current interests lie in the EME (Earth-Moon-Earth) field. I have done a small amount of 2-M EME in the early 1980’s and some 432 MHz. EME in the mid-’90’s (74 initials using four 25-L K1FO yagis.)
At present I am not QRV on the moon. However, I have all the hardware for 2-M EME with four K1FO 15-L yagis and an 8877 plus most of the hardware for 16 rear-mount (polarity control) K1FO 15-L yagis with a Lunar-Link amp (2x3CX800A7’s.) On 1296 I have 99% of the hardware to operate with a pair of 7289’s and a Scientific Atlanta 5.1 Meter solid dish (see picture at left.)
Lots of work still to do as I do NOT have a hamshack at present and I may be moving again (hopefully to a better ham radio location.) I will be working first on getting on 1296 and then on 2-M EME and finally on 432.
Once I do become EME capable again, I plan to seriously operate EME on all three bands above and move into the higher bands as well. (I just acquired a 7.7 watt TWT for 10GHz!)
Here is my girlfriend (fiancée) Evelyn F. Kimberling.
Evelyn is a Registered Dietician who works for a 98-bed convalescent and rehabilitation center. Evelyn has two sons, David, 30, and Darren, 28, both single and looking!
Evelyn and I are planning to attend the EME Conference in Paris in August, 1998.
