Biography

After much prodding from my father, WB5ZOI – SK, I became KB5BOB on 12-31-1986 and kept the license till the upgrade to Extra in July 2007 as AE5CL. I did not like it so NX5O was snagged. I have also held KC6OO while on DXpedition to Palau in 1993. What a treat that was.


My main interest is RTTY and you can find me in almost any RTTY Contest. I do enjoy trying all of the modes, from SSTV to ATV to PSK31…And CW from time to time.

I do work Satellite from time to time.

I hold the following ARRL Awards:
DXCC - MIXED #41,827
DXCC - RTTY #2,433
WAS - RTTY #563
Triple Play #415
VUCC SAT # 192 and am working on 5 Band DXCC and 5 Band WAS which is now completed.

SMIRK - 6914

I QSL via the LOTW and Direct with SASE.

If we have worked before many thanks and if not I will look for you on the bands.

Equipment

For RTTY my station is a Yaesu FT-2000D with DMU and Alpha 4810. The second position is a Yaesu FT-1000D and Alpha 78 serviced by N4UQ as a spare and just added a microKeyer II, what a joy to work with. The Antenna’s are a 7 Element tri-bander at 51 feet with A WX0B OCF for 80 thru 10, Alpha Delta Sloper for 160.

The satellite station consists of a Kenwood TS-2000X, M2-2MCP14 for VHF, M2 436CP30 for UHF and M2 23CM22EZA for 1.2Ghz. Rotator is Yaesu G-5500 with EA4TX AZ/EL Control Board. I also have installed a M2 2M7 7 Elements for 2 Meters and a M2 2M5X for 6 Meters.
