WT9Q   Bob Sauvan


Bob was licensed in January of 1990 as KB9EAZ.  By May of that year he had earned his Technician, General, Advanced and Extra licenses.  Residing north-west of Madison on a picturesque wood lot, Bob has assembled an impressive station.  He operates primarily CW and most enjoys contesting and DXing.  He has won a first in CQWW-160 CW and ARRL-DX CW and participates in many other contests.  Bob has 301 countries confirmed, 307 worked.

He is a member of ARRL, the Society of Midwest Contesters and the Madison DX Club.


WT9Q has a pair of HF transceivers, healthy HF amplifier and computerized logging (Writelog) and CW/RTTY interface.  There's quite a few control boxes for antennas and rotors as well.


  The 85 foot tower supports a pair of KT36XA antennas, the lower antenna is fixed to the north-east.  Barely visible are inverted V's and a sloper.



Almost out of sight are a 50 foot tower with a 3 element HyGain 40 meter beam and a 14AVQ vertical in the foreground.  Seems to be more wire antennas on this tower too.



Bob thought that the damage done by a recent lightning strike was enough for one guy and upgraded his lightning protection system.  Nice job!
