*** Featured Station ***

Fred- KG5DNQ

Our featured station this round is a Texas Power House in Hillsboro, Texas the home of KG5DNQ. Fred’s beautiful shack features a marvelous collection of classic E.F. Johnson gear ranging from the Ranger all the way through the Johnson 500. In addition to a fine collection of Johnson gear, and many pieces of home brew equipment, Fred is also restoring a beautiful Collins 20V AM broadcast transmitter for use on the amateur bands.   

An avid supporter of AM operation, Fred is also an exceptional home brew aficionado since 1980, before getting his ticket Fred was known for his repair ability and as a ‘parts junky’. At the urging of friends Fred passed his ticket in 2014 and luckily for us, is now a fixture on 75 meter AM phone. Fred’s station is also one of the ‘Texas Tall Ships’ and is widely heard throughout the southwest. You’ll find Fred on 75 meters in the evenings weekdays and on the Texoma Traders Net Saturday mornings.




***WINTER PRE-NET SCHEDULE 0630ct - 0700ct***

To accommodate the various schedule needs of the group and to take advantage of pre-sunrise propagation, the 3890 AM Texoma Traders Net now has a Pre-Net check in for short time and DX stations beginning at 0630 with the regular net beginning at 0800. If you are ‘short-time’ and/or a DX check in with or without traffic at 0630 here's a chance to 'get in for the count'. But if you can by all means stick around for the regular net at 0700.
