Biography

Greetings from Havana Illinois (Mason County) in the West central part of the state 50 miles South of Peoria, 50 miles North of Springfield, on the scenic Illinois River. I am an Extra class and have had a license since 1989. I am using a Flex 5000A with 2nd receiver, ATU, and V/U options installed. Virtual audio cable, DDutil, and VSP manager to make the differt parts of the sytem play nice together. Back up radio is my old trusty Kenwood TS-2000 with an Ameritron ALS-1300 solid state amp with an Ameritron AL-572 and Heathkit SB-200 (Ebay special) as back ups into a 3 element Steppir with the 40 meter add on up about 35 feet. I have a hazer on the tower so I can lower it to work on it if needed. For the low bands I have a "QSO-KING" 160-6 meters 1.5 KW end fed wire antenna that has a MFJ-998RT 1.5 KW Remote tuner connected to it at the feed point. I have a MFJ-989D tuner for back up. The antenna for 2 meter / 70 cm is a Gulf Antenna 2M7-70CM10. I really like the Gulf antennas they are really solid built and have good bandwidth. I enjoy ssb and RTTY, PSK31, and JT65hf modes via MixW and other softwares. Not much on code but I am trying to learn it to use on air. My log is by N3FJP Amateur contact log V3. For satellite I use the dual band Gulf sat antenna for 2m/70cm. I hate that AO-51 died, it was really fun. I really enjoy when 6 meters is open and I am at grid square EN40xg. I'm not really a chit-chatter, I like to make a contact and move on to the next one. I prefer qsling via LOTW at ARRL headquarters and WWW.eQSL.CC I also just joined the ClubLog QSLing site - https://secure.clublog.org/loginform.php. And I am on Facebook as (WWW.facebook.com/Thomas.P.Moore). When I am not on the air I'll be golfing, working in the yard, or in the work shed building stuff. As far as work goes I am a corrections officer with the State of Illinois with almost 22 years completed. I work at Illinois River Correctional Center in Canton Illinois. I spent my first 5 years as an officer at Menard Psychiatric Correctional Center in Chester Illinois. One thing about it, you never know what the day is going to bring you in there.

I think I have finally found a good system for printing my own QSL cards at home so I will be glad to send one out with a SASE.

I have been working hard studying CW trying to be good enough to make contacts and I have a new SKCC number of 11161
