WELCOME TO MY KA2KGP HOMEPAGE,  THANKS FOR VISITING!

I have two stations, one in Forestville, NY (FN02kk) and one in Austin, PA (FN01wp).

My Forestville Station is an IC-7000 into an AT-7000 antenna tuner.  The antenna is either an all band ground mounted vertical, or a G5RV up 25 feet.  My station is in my barn and I have a radio shop & bench there.  I have a TenTec Argosy Tranceiver into the G5RV thru an MFJ Antenna Tuner.

My Austin, PA Station is a Kenwood TS-430S into an AT-230 antenna tuner. The antenna is either an all band ground mounted vertical, or a G5RV up 35 feet. I have a small shop there.

I also operate portable from my camp during field days and while on camping trips.  I use a vintage Heathkit HW-8 QRP Tranceiver for portable operations.

 

KA2KGP Station Statistics:

I operate HF 80 thru 10 meters CW & RTTY , QRP & QRO. My Main rig is an ICOM IC-7000 into either a 5 band ground mounted vertical or a 5 band dipole up 25 ft. thru an AT-7000 antenna tuner.

I'm a hearing impaired operator, so I 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.
