Hello. I was licensed in Nov. 2009. I took both the Tech and the General exam at the same time and look forward to working on my Extra. My original call was KB1TIW and I have changed it to K1RAX. I passed the Extra exam on 3/9/2013 and can now chase some more DX :)
I was using an old desktop for logging purposes (HRD and some tinkering with digital modes) but that PC is having some issues so I've switched to using a Mac with MacloggerDX software for logging purposes. I still like the HRDnet popup below and export logs to it often but it won't instantly reflect my latest contacts. I'm also using clublog, LoTW, and eQSL.
I was in the Navy for 10 years and now work at a telecommunications company. I've always been interested in electronics and even some CB and shortwave listening in the past. I drifted away from the radio world in the early 1990's until a friend recently rekindled my interest when I saw his ham shack. Thanks WB2VVV!!
I return all QSL's. I was off the air for almost 2 years and had a log problem. If I owe you a card please email me and I'll get one out. My QSL cards tend to include something I've photographed and not necessarily something local to CT. I thought sharing my photographs would be more fun than just having a plain card!
I'm running a 40/20/17/10M dipole at about 40ft. I just changed radios to an Icom IC-7410 with a Icom Desk microphone. It loads up on 12 and 15 too and I plan on putting up a hexbeam soon. I also have an Ameritron AL-811H to help out in some of the pileups.
I do run mobile sometimes. If you work me mobile please use K1RAX/M for LoTW and eQSL. I have them both setup to recognize the /M
setup mobile for 75M
My QSL Cards are things I've photographed (not necessarily local to my QTH)
Looking forward to talking with you.
