Welcome to the Web Site for Bill Axelrod and Amateur Radio Station K3WA
Please use these buttons to navigate this site.
Bill Axelrod, K3WA, moved to Woodford County, Illinois to enjoy his retirement, the fine weather in the mid-west,  and, of course, the wonderful   propagation we experience in the Black Hole.

My family is very supportive of my hobby including my passion for disappearing for weekends at a time for contests. 

Brenda and I decided that it was time to downsize - smaller house, less land, much less maintenance and of course - fewer antennas.  Like none.  Except maybe something stealthy.  We bought a home in Pittsboro, NC and moved in on 31 December 2019.  I am active on the bands and in contests using my home station with a highly compromised stealth antenna and remote ham radio.   Putting my station back together is a job in progress.

So, what's a ham to do after spending 10 years building a competitive contest station?  Why, you tear it all down and relocate.
