I have been an active ham since 1993. My favorite activities are VHF roving, HF mobile for NYQP, QRP, CW, 160M, 6M, and contesting. Combing these things is definitely FB! DX is also on the list as long it doesn't involve unruly pileups and late and long hours at the radio.
Most of my actual operating time is spent contesting. I'm usually out on the road for the big three ARRL VHF contests along with CQWW VHF and sometimes the August UHF. I don't tend to have many HF contests blocked out on the calendar, but instead try to on for a few hours here and there to help pad the scores of big guns. Some of my favorite contests are Stew Perry, RAC, ARRL 160, and the CWops Open. I'm dead tired by the time the evening CWOps CWT starts but like this one if I can actually stay awake.
My shack is sporting a new K3/100 with internal tuner, 2M, and a 400Hz filter. A MacMini runs Aether Log for general logging Skookum Logger by K1GQ for contesting. I have Parallels/Win7/N1MM installed just in case.
If you are in the Niagara Frontier region and like contesting, check out a brand new club, NF2RS (Niagara Frontier Radiosport).
