Biography

Everyone calls me Toby. I started in ham radio at Treasure Island Naval Base in San

Francisco Bay in 1963 with call

sign KN5INI. I began my Navy career going into Nuclear Field Electronics/Submarines.

Wound up in the Mediterranean with VR-24 Det Transport Squardon and then to Naval

Communication Station at Nea Makri, Greece.

Lots of pictures in QRZ.



I do a lot of 2 meters, since I like driving a lot, so each of the cars has a rig in it.

I'm running: Alinco 620, Yaesu FTM3200D, Yaesu FT2900 and a bunch of Yaesu FT2980's.



In my shop is a Yaesu FTM3100 2m rig powered by an Astron SS25M tied to a J-pole

at 25' I'm also using an

Icom 756 Pro transciever with an LDG IT-100 tuner and MFJ 891 meter using an DipolesUSA

Off Center dipole antenna for listening in to the rest of the world on SW/MW/LW and HF.


HF in house station transceivers are: a Yaesu FTDX9000D with Ameritron ALS-600 auto amp

and a LDG 600 Pro II tuner along with a Yaesu FTDX5000MP with an Ameritron AL-1200 amp

with a Palstar AT-auto tuner and a Yaesu FT-1000MP Mk V with an MFJ 939Y3 auto tuner

and all have accompanying watt meters.

VHF/UHF is handled by a Yaesu FT8800R. Also have an Icom R71A receiver for

shortwave listening.



Antennas are - an OC Buckmaster 3000, an MFJ 1982HP end fed NVIS set at 6'-8' above

ground, a 118' CAGE antenna for 80m built by Tom Layne K5VWZ and a Cushcraft R7 vertical

for receiving only.

VHF/UHF is covered by a Diamond X50A set on top of the tower at 56'. The Icom R71A

receiver uses an Alpha-Delta SWL slooper antenna. Coax is LMR400 solid and multi-strand

except for the R71 which uses RG-213.

PICTURES AVAILABLE ON QRZ

The table everything is sitting upon is from 1884 and is a dining table with an add-in

center section which is held in place by a wrought iron crankshaft.

I had not seen anything like it, so my wife said to bring it home and the table

has lived with us for about 25 years. I've added a shelf for books above the radios,

and have had made, some bookends using 811 tubes which have been lighted, which

especially add a great look during night time operating.

Well, the tower is FINALLY up. The weather was the problem for year 2019. I found

the best way is to feed and cajole WR5AY into playing with a tow behind bucket trailer.

Then everyone has FUN? We both learned a great deal about

things we probably didn't really want to know, but enjoyed doing it. Thanks again to a

really great friend and ham buddy.

You can see him enjoying the fruits of his labors in the last picture.
