Scott is Oklahoma native. Actually, only less than 10 miles from his home town.

Thru the 1980’s Scott served in the US Submarine Service mostly aboard attack boats. Had a shore duty tour as well. Both were in Pearl Harbor, HI. It was on shore duty fate crossed his path with a Ham that was attached to the same command. Scott had CB’s as a kid liked hearing the “skip”. He told Scott it got much better than that and suggested Scott stop by his QTH for a test drive. That was back in 1987.

Scott’s first license was WH6BWD, had it a grand total of 30 days then went from Novice to General getting the primary call he operated with NH6OT. Discharged in 1989 due to a knee injury (at the Trident base in Bangor WA) Scott returned to the Texas panhandle where his folks were living for a while then back to Oklahoma. He changed the NH6 call for a N5 call due to too many folks getting upset to hear a HI call only to find out he’s in 5 land. Soon after that things happened and he was off the air for several years.

Scott renewed his General class license a shade over a year ago now, a month later passed the Extra class exam and was given AG5FU. Everyone out there had a comment on that suffix. Like are you kidding me? Some wanted to know if it was a vanity call because they didn’t think the FCC would hand that out voluntarily, well they did. Scott’s current call is the vanity call.

Scott’s station is a work in progress, Rig is a Yaesu FTdx 1200 when needed it pushes an Ameritron AL-811 and he only drives it hard enough to get 500-550 watts output. The antenna’s Scott has used are verticals from Hy-Gain, a Cobweb (Scout) from Radiowavz and a 40-meter inverted V. Current antenna for 20 and up is a NA4RR Hex Beam. It does really well at 35’. It really shines on 17-meters.

Scott has an Aluma-Tower 50’ crank up tower coming at the end of Sept. Scott has a Mosely MP-33 WARC to go on it. That antenna was also purchased with the 40M rotatable dipole add on. However, putting some time in on the 7163 net and DX work on 40 Scott is re-evaluating that antenna, may sell it still in the unopened boxes and purchase a Mosely Pro-67 B that has 3 elements on 40. For 6 meters Scott has an M2 3 element Yagi in the box waiting for the big tower.

Scott’s favorite things to do that Ham radio offers is DX’ing, Contesting, chasing special events and as some on the net knows he will turn the rig on solely for the purpose of tracking DXpeditions down.  And of course, making quality friends everywhere. Sometime in the future Scott would like to be part of a DXpedition, anyway that’s a bucket lister.

 






Carlos, KF2C Was first licensed back in 1985 as KB2NHU, He passed his general in 1988 then extra class in 2000, Carlos is a Volunteer examiner for ARRL and W5YI, He is interested in DX, building antennas, Hang Gliding, Traveling and Enjoying life As a Vegan(no animal products nutrition). His station consists of  a Yaesu FTDX5000 for 40 and 80 Mtrs, a Yaesu FTDX5000 for 6 to 20 Mtrs, The antennas are a 6 to 20 Mtrs Sommer  808 Antenna and a discovery 72 monobander for 40 Mtrs on top of a heights Tower System.
