Biography

I got my ticket at the age of 16 with the call N9LVZ. Working 2m FM for a couple years and had a blast with that. Of course I got the bug to get on HF so I started preparing to upgrade. I got my general license and changed my call to W9DSC. I kept going until I got to extra class and decided to get a 2x1 call and here I am as WD9N.

I enjoy building antennas, usually wire, but have done 2m and 440 beams, even a few 10m beams over the years. The resources to build rigs and amps are about gone, so I play with antennas.

Equipment

Flex 6300 with an LDG AT-200Pro II into a dual band inverted V.

Behringer X Air 12 mixer to handle all the audio in and out of the Flex, including gate, compression, EQ, and processing of audio. The mic is an MXL BCD-1 Dynamic end address.
