I was first licensed in the early 1980's with the callsigm, KA2MYD, but not to active on the ham bands. During this time I was heavly involved with Navy Maine Corps MARS, for about thirteen years, which gave me all the radio time I wanted.
After obtaining my Extra class license, I applied for my current call sign in October of 2009 fulfilling a promise I made to myself in 1984, by getting a vanity call sign.
I retired from the go-to-work to pay the bills group and joined the stay at home and pay the doctor group in January 2011. I worked for a major hardwood lumber company as a stationary engineer for 32 years.
Since then I have been very active. I have earned my WAS, WAS RTTY and DXCC. I operate many of the major RTTY contests.
Current station consists of an Icom 756 Pro 3 as my main rig, an Icom IC706MK2G as backup. HF antennas are a Cushcraft TH3 for 10-20 meters and a Buckmaster windom for everything else. A Cushcraft A50-5S sits on top of the tower for 6 meters.
No amplifier at this station. I enjoy the challenge of working DX with only 100 watts
I hope to meet you on the air some place
