These Colors Don't Run and Never Will!

Welcome to WB4JWM's website, a place where I share some of my knowledge and experiences with others regarding the 630 Meter Amateur Band.

QTH Eatonton, Georgia EM83ji

Name is Tom; first licensed in 1968 as WN4JWM, then 1969 as WB4JWM. I also hold General Radiotelephone 2nd Class operators licenses.

After retiring May 2015 from the communications industry, primarily Two Way radio and later 2 and 6 GHZ microwave transport systems, I am back active on MF, HF, 6 and 2 meters.

My station is a Kenwood TS-990S, 160 meter OCF dipole on HF. On 6 Meters a Beko HLV-1950 amplifier and JK-65, 5 element beam.

Icom IC-9700 on 2 Meters with TE-Systems 1452G amplifier, and a M2-12 12 element beam at 50'.

Now active on 630 meters using the TS-990 1mw out on the DRV port, into a 200 watt homebrew FET Linear amplifier. Antenna is a 40' vertical 300' T, and 8-200' radials resulting in 5 watts EIRP out. I have 36 States worked, and 3 DXCC.

If you are interested in 630 Meters be sure to apply for authorization through the UTC for your station location. See link at the bottom of this page. Once you apply there is a 30-day waiting period. If you dont receive a denial within the 30-day waiting period, your location is clear for operation.
