After having been interested in shortwave radio for some time, I decided to take the plunge into amateur radio and received my Technician license on Field Day 2010.  Wanting more, I embarked on a quick upgrade path and got my General upgrade just two weeks later.  Even then, though, it wasn't quite enough: too much activity in parts of the bands in which I couldn't legally operate!  So, just a month after receiving my General, I passed my Amateur Extra upgrade exam and now have a new call sign.

At present I use a Yaesu FT-857D radio with a ground-mounted Hustler 4BTV with a bunch of DX Engineering add-ons.  I also have a 2m Cushcraft vertical antenna that I need to mount, and I plan on doing some modifications to the Hustler (including adding a bunch of radials).

I'm also quite interested in working the digital modes, particularly PSK31. I now own a Signalink USB, and have had a decent amount of success with that.

The one thing I've found with amateur radio is that there's always something to do!
