N 37.55915, W 121.99260, CM97an - former call: WB6MYC
First licensed in 1964; assigned W6PQL in 2003, which was the call first issued to my late father in 1938.
Hobbies other than amateur radio include wine making, precision shooting, golf and tennis. The children are all grown up now, on their own, and doing O.K. One daughter is an engineer, the other a CPA. Maybe now I can get my computer fixed and my taxes done...
The antennas are pretty modest, mostly small Yagis at about 33 feet. The antenna mast rotates through a bearing bolted to the apex of the roof (the rotator is located on top of a trellis).
Lately I've been experimenting with WSJT-X and WSJT 10.0 for EME work, and managed to work out some instructions for setting up the radios I use here. These instructions can be found under the "Current Projects" link on the left.
