J. Alexander, Occupation: Professional Engineer, DOB 7/20/44,
5781 FM 1094, Sealy, TX 77474. I first got my license in about 1958 as
WA6AEQ from Imperial Beach, CA.
I have held the following calls: WA6AEQ, W4RNG, W1GKA, W2IKA, K2UA, and
now W5KU. I enjoy meeting people, building projects (antennas these
days), building up a DX Contest station that can operate Single OP or
Multi-single and keep up with the top 10. The chief engineer and
assistant in building the station is K5GN, Dave McCarty. He uses his own
call when operating, so say hello to him when you hear
him on. Usually CW. However, Dave is located on job site in Qatar, A71 territory for next few years. Look for A71EM. I also enjoy rag-chewing with the gang on 3819 kHz.
The station is currently located on 10 acres at 29.815 North, 96.225
West, in Austin County Texas about 51 miles NW of Houston, and not
inside any incorporated Township. You can keep those Deed restrictions!
Thanks for dropping by our Homepage and see you in the pile ups.
Drop by 3819 kHz. sometime and say hello.
