I am mostly on 6m-23cm bands running low power, but I occasionally venture on to HF. I've just started experimenting with 200mW on 3cm using a small horn on a 60cm dish. Skeds welcome.
If I am in the shack, I usually log in to ON4KST chat & probably set up for 2m or 70cms, so give me a shout. New-comers to amateur radio are especially welcome for a chat. If you have your "ticket" then you have as much right as anyone else to be on the air. We are all learning & we can all learn from each other. We were all beginners once. I'm friendly! :)
When I got into amateur radio as a listener, A5801, and later as a licensed amateur, there were still lots of amateurs about who were ex-forces & shit-hot on the key. Recently we have had a new influx of enthusiasm into the hobby from CB operators and I welcome this. Amateur radio is a broad church & different people can enjoy it in different ways.
I will have a go at morse code when the going gets tough. I passed my test at 12 wpm some time ago and I don't think I've really improved at it since then, so be gentle with me on this mode!
I have registered with LotW and I have loaded up some contacts, mostly from 1969. I'll try to catch up.
