Welcome to my background. I have been licensed since 1954 as a novice and finally upgraded to the various levels to become an Extra Class when the 20 WPM was dropped. My code speed at 18 WPM was my best speed. Years ago, I built several wire antennas and used several types. Due to now living on a small land site, I have developed my present station using a 43 ground mounted vertical with 60 underground radials plus using other antennas on my 72 foot motorized tower which includes a seven element Mosley Pro-67B at about 74' and a ringo ranger for 2 meters at about 80 feet. The equipment in the shack is a Icon- 7800, Ameritron AL-1200 Amplifier, Ten-tec KW tuner, with a Yaseu DX-1000 control unit for the rotator. After a gap in my radio hobby due to raising 3 children and now having 13 grandchildren, I have been blessed to return to this wonderful hobby. I am active in church work including the Gideon Ministry. When not busy here, my wife and I travel in the United States in our motorhome, and do some traveling overseas. In the past, I have visited over 30 countries and every state in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. I have been so blessed to have wonderful friends that have helped me enjoy this hobby. My goal is to live by the "Golden Rule " and make friends on and off of the airways and thank my Lord for this life and my wife. Please contact me by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
