On May 22, 2015 I moved to Choctaw, OK.  I hope this is my last move for a long time!  I am still located in ITU section 7 and CQ zone 4, my new grid square is EM15ji in Cleveland County. I have plans this fall to build two towers (one for VHF/UHF/HF and one for satellite work). With permanent masts and antennas - perhaps soon, I'll be back on the air with VHF/UHF/Microwave! In the fall, I intend to re-setup my beverage antenna oriented SW to NE about 360 ft long. Future plans will see a beverage oriented SE to NW.

My plans include a 105 foot tower. The mast will be driven with a Yaesu G-1000SDX rotator and has a Mosley Classic 36 six el/triband beam at 95 ft., a 30 ft 1.25m beam at 98 ft, a 23 el 70cm beam at 101 ft, and a 10 wavelength 2 meter beam at 105 ft. At the 60 and 90ft level I will have two 102 ft long DX-LB+ multi-band antennas - one east-west, the other north-south.  On a separate 25 foot pole, I will have a 3 el 6 meter beam.  I will re-establish my satellite tower: a 25 ft tower that has two long gain circular polarized antennas - for 2m and 70cm. I enjoy satellite contacts through this setup - I would really like to add mast pre-amps and a polarity switch. I have enough to qualify for a satellite award from my previous work in 2006 through 2012, but I'm refurbing the antennas right now to really up the ante! More to come here!

The Beverage antenna (originally installed in KS new from DX Engineering in 2011 and removed in summer of 2012), was 3 foot high, 360 feet long aimed NE. My plans for improvement include putting up a parallel 360 ft wire beverage and a dual one at right angles to reach Asia. The additions of the SE to NW antenna will require a new DX engineering switch... These will really help (again) with those western European and Eastern Asia contacts!

In the shack, I have a Yaesu FT-2000 HF/6m Radio, Yaesu FT-847 HF/VHF/UHF Radio, an 800 watt Ameritron AL-811H amplifier, and an automatic antenna tuner. I have a Yaesu FT-736R with 2m, 70cm, 1.25m, and 23 cm. For two meters, I have a FT-726R 2m all-mode radio. In my 2016 Jeep I have a Yaesu FT-100, a Yaesu screwdriver, a Kenwood TM-D710a with its accompanying GPS, 2m/70cm antenna, and a 6m hamstick. The FT-100 is removable - I sometimes use it as a 2nd radio during VHF/UHF contests in the shack.

I like DXing, public service (SKYWARN, Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network - SATERN), amateur satellite, and kit building. My daughter became a ham (KC0MTM) at 13 years old and my son became one at 17 years old (KC0YJI). They enjoy participating in Field Day and public service as well. I used to volunteer at the St. Louis National Weather Service in Weldon Springs, MO and the Wichita, KS NWS - I've assisted as a net control during multiple tornado outbreaks.  My new home in Choctaw is close to the Norman, OK NWS; however, sadly, they do not take volunteers.  I may mobile weather spot in the years to come.  Just need to feel better about the roads near here - there is way too much traffic to do it safely at present.

Rover Entry for VHF ContestsFor awards, I have achieved DXCC (10m confirmed, need to submit the paperwork for 15m and 20m) and have worked VUCC (over 300 grids) on 6m and VUCC on 2m with over 160 grids. I have worked VUCC on 70cm - but I need to submit the grids for official tallying. I am working on VUCC for 1.25m ( I have about 25 grids there). I have worked all states on 10m, 40m, and 80m. I am closing rapidly on 15m, 20m, and 160m. I guess the states and grids will have to start over due to my relocation, but that will be fun, too!

I am a life member of the ARRL.

I was a founder / organizer of the Greater Wichita Field Days and re-establishing (in 2009-2011) the Kansas QSO Party. www.ksqsoparty.org  Since October 2013 I have been helping improve the participation in the MO QSO Party.  I helped  coordinate the Missouri QSO Party in 2014 and 2015; many changes! Please visit the website for details for the MO QSO Party.  http://www.w0ma.org/.

I started as a ham in August 1996 as KB0YHU. In May 2000, I changed my callsign to AB0LD (automatically assigned). In August 2000, I made my last callsign change to N0LD. K5MNZ, Steve, got me interested, stoked the interest, and then elmered me into this great hobby.

From August 1996 through July 28, 2012 I was located three miles east of Rose Hill, KS - 15 miles south-east of Wichita, KS. I was located in grid square EM17ln in Butler County. On July 29, 2012 I moved to Lake Saint Louis, MO - about 30 miles west of Saint Louis, MO. My grid square was EM48os in St. Charles County.

On April 4, 2013 I moved to 1479 Osage Ln, Labadie, MO 63055. I was located in ITU section 7 and CQ zone 4, the grid square was EM48on in Franklin County. It took me a long time to find property within 30 miles of work with no Home Owners Assocation. With my son's help I established a 102' long multiband HF wire. I established a 2m/70cm vertical and I can operate 6m on my DX-LB plus. 

On January 8, 2015 I moved to Edmond, OK. I was still in ITU section 7 and CQ zone 4, the grid square was EM15gp in Oklahoma County. I lived at this location until May 21, 2015.  I am through moving!  It would take an enormously bad situation.  I enjoy my work in sales and marketing for the Boeing company.
