I operate an Elecraft K3/100 with P3 panadapter and just added an Icom IC-910H for 2m and 70cm. My antennas are a Cushcraft MA6V at 20 feet for 20 through 6 meters, an InnovAntennas 3-element LFA Yagi for 6 meters at 25 feet, Par Electronics Omniangles for 2m and 70cm along with 2m 6 element and 70cm 11 element cheap yagis (designed by WA5VJB). I operate RTTY HF contests as well as 6m, 2m, and 70cm in my expanding capabilities for VHF/UHF weak signal grid chasing and contesting. I'm also working a few satellite QSOs.
I write a blog titled "My Ham Radio Adventures" at www.K5ND.net Please check it out. I believe you'll find much of interest.
I also write the career adventures blog at www.PathForeWord.com which is my freelance writing and consulting business.
My other passion is Scouting. I've been fortunate to connect my career and ham radio to Scouting. I retired in 2013 after twenty-one years at the Boy Scouts' National HQ working in publishing and communications. I continue in volunteer roles as Chairman of the National Radio Scouting Committee, National Jamboree on the Air Organizer, and as a member of the World JOTA-JOTI Team. Finally, I'm President of the K2BSA Amateur Radio Association. Check out their website at www.K2BSA.net
If you're interested in learning more about my background, I've had the pleasure of chatting with Eric Guth, 4Z1UG, as part of his weekly conversations with leaders in the hobby of amateur radio at his website QSO Today. You can hear the full podcast at Episode 64 – Jim Wilson – K5ND.
It was awful nice of Eric to include me with this list of amateur radio luminaries. I recommend that you follow the link above to my episode, but check out the rest of the interviews with an incredible list of those who have made a true impact on amateur radio and how they got their start. Eric has assembled an incredible body of work.
Thanks to all who've worked me and dug my signal out of the QRN and QRM.
73 and 55 to all,
