My home QTH is in Forestville, NY (FN02kk).

My Station is an ICOM IC-7000 into an AT-7000 antenna tuner.  The antenna is either an all band ground mounted vertical, or a G5RV up 25 feet.  I also have a TenTec Argosy Tranceiver into the G5RV thru an MFJ Antenna Tuner.

I also operate POTA.  I use a vintage Heathkit HW-8 QRP Tranceiver or a Yaesu FT-817 QRP Portable for field operations.



KA2KGP Station Statistics:

I operate HF 80 thru 10 meters CW & RTTY , QRP & QRO. My Main rig is an ICOM IC-7000 into a G5RV Dipole up 25 ft. thru an AT-7000 antenna tuner.

I'm a hearing impaired operator, so I sometimes use a PC to decode CW & RTTY and can QSO with the best of them.

HAMFESTER !  -  I attend all the local & not-so-local hamfests and radio auctions and buy & sell & swap gear.

HOMEBREW'er  -  I make QRP & QRPp CW transmitters and related QRP gear.  It's a challange to build QRP equipment, and FUN to operate too !

QRP'er  -  I love the challange of operating CW QRP, or low power, to make contacts on the ham bands.  I'm in several QRP Groups & Clubs that promote my hobby fasination.
