previous call: N6TTO
Accepts QSL via:
Previously N6TTO and originally from the UK. I've been a licenced ham since 1973 when I got my UK class B license with the call G8HQA. I've operated in a lot of different countries before the CEPT agreement and held DA4BM when I lived in Germany.
I'm an active contester in all modes - CW, SSB and RTTY. Outside of contests, I'm active mostly on the digital modes including WSPR - the Weak Signal Propagation Reporter protocol designed by Joe Taylor K1JT. There's a lot of information available about WSPR at the WSPRnet.org web site.
I like building my own hardware - you can find write ups of some of my projects on my blog - click on the link below...
I operate a fully remote radio station - the radios and antennas are about 500 feet from the house. The system is controlled over Ethernet and the audio links are over an extension in the small PBX we have in the house plus a dedicated balanced audio link (over CAT6 cable) for the primary radio.
I've operated a remote system for many years and have tackled a variery of problems to make the operating as close to "being at the radio" as I can - drop me an email if you need help or information on remote operations.
Primary System: Flex-5000A with Alpha 9500 and SPE1K amp
Backup System: Kenwood TS-B2000
- Steppir DB-18E at 50'

My callsign K6TU was originally held by Herbert (Herb) Lundmark who lived in Petaluma, California. He was a dedicated ham and for many years served as the manager of the RCA Trans-Pacific Communications station at Bolinas and Point Reyes. This station was originally built by Marconi in 1913 as one of the first radio links across the Pacific.
Herb was originally from Evanston, IL - he served as a communications officer in the US Navy during World War II and then moved to California.
