Below are other cards I've made. I operated C6A at the end of 2013 thru Jan 5th 2014. Really had a lot of fun, carried entire station down on the plane in a carry on hand bag. Lots of contacts from all over. Card was made especially for QSL's from that trip. The second card was from setting up in a rare grid square in DM 71 at an abandoned gas station at Kent, Tx, a ghost town, during field day 2011 on 6 meters with another ham, W5NQH. Temp reached over 120f, but a neat experience. Bottom image was made a few years back, but pretty close in representing my situation set up. Can tell I build antenna tuners, etc, and don't mind turning knobs to set things. After all, I built my first receivers and transmitters from converting and adding to surplus WWII stuff I bought at a ham store in Houston where I lived for the first 30 yrs of my life. That style is still ingrained in my operating technique. I'm an "Old Ham". In the image at top, I'm operating on a cruise ship in 2013 that left from Galveston, Tx. Maritime mobile is different, salt water changes the whole thing! The station photo is how it looks now in 2014. Have amps for HF and 6 meters, and all my antennas are home made. Like to have something I built involved in the process, so it's a personal thing. I still love the hobby just as much as I did when I went on the air with 10watts CW in July of 1956. Hope you enjoy hamming as much as I do, when I get time to get on!
