Ham since 1961. FISTS 5019, SKCC 4963T. CW was my only mode but added PSK31 and RTTY recently with the aid of a SignaLink USB--no mikes in this shack. Member of ARRL, UDXA. Chase DX and chew the fat.
Got my first tickets in 1961, WN4BNA and WA4BNA Technician in NC. Came west to college, got WA7IEO and then KJ7BD and last AK7O. I have been a Utahn since 1961. In fact I never operated from NC as my tickets arrived just as I left NC for college.
AGE: 71 and still love CW with the additon of PSK31 and RTTYand chasing DX. My first RTTY QSO was with Belize!
I use LoTW for every QSO. I also QSL via the bureau and direct. I prefer LoTW. Also upload to eQSL and Club Log.
You can see my radios above,but changed the alignment now for PSK31 and RTTY. Only one Orion is active at a time. They feed a T8 Tennadyne log at 50 feet and inverted vees for 40 and 30 M peaking at 48 feet. At present no more SO2R as it was not productive for me.
Presently I am working on WAS on 80 thru 10 M CW and need many on 12M--Just the hard ones WY, MT, etc on 17-10M HI. Also need WY for WAS PSK31!
