My nickname is Mack.

The pictures below are various operating positions in my shack. My goal is to be able to operate on every band and mode from 160M to 23 cm. I do this at legal limit on 160M - 10M,600W on 6M and 100W on all other bands including 23 cm.There are 17antennas and three towers on my lot. My primary transmitting antennas are a SteppIR at 75ft, Mosley 67C-3 at 80 ft, a3/8 wavelength inverted L on 160M, an 80 meter vertical and inverted V andM2 Yagi's for higher frequencies. I use a Circle 8 active array receiving antenna on 160M and 80M.My favorite modern radio is Flex Radio 6700. My favorite vintage radio is the Collins S-Line.

My shack embodies the ying and yang of ham radio. One part is ultra modern and high tech with full computer control of everything. The other half uses vintage rigs, some as old as 1943and paper logs. I operate in the ying and yang of ham radio daily on all modes.

I belong to four great clubs in the local area: The Dayton 2010 Club of the Year the North Fulton Amateur Radio League http://www.nfarl.org, the Southeastern DX Club http://www.sedxc.org, the South East Contest Club http://secc.contesting.com, and the North Georgia QRP Club http://www.nogaqrp.org.

I would like to especially thank my many great friends for all your support through the years since I became a ham in 1968. I won't try to name them all because there are so many.

I also operate a public resource available via the Internet. A CW Skimmer server covering the entire CW portion of 7 bands simultaneously (160M-10M). If you're interested in the CW I can hear at my QTH and would like to link your logging program directly you may connect to w4ax.com port 44000with your logging telnet application. I also send this data to the Reverse Beacon Network at http://www.reversebeacon.net.

My other main hobby is trail running. I'm a very active runner typically running six days a week and about 80miles a month on very rugged and hilly trails. I prefer to run with my two dogs off leashso I can have some alone time in the deep woods.
