Hello and thanks for reading my notes.
As you can see from the general info, I have been licensed since 1969 at age 13. I have enjoyed growing up with this wonderful hobby; witnessing changes in technology and making new friends all over the world.
Station rundown for home QTH is ICOM IC-7410 at 100W to a Bencher Skyhawk 10-element yagi up 40 ft for 10, 15 and 20 mtrs and an Alpha Delta sloper for 40, 80 and 160 mtrs. I recently brought my National NCL-2000 amplifier online that has been in hibernation since 1987. I miss the warm glow of tubes - not to mention self-heating in the radio room. Upcoming plans include remodeling my radio room with new desk and console and bringing back the rest of my classic equipment including Swan 500C transceiver and other classic ICOM gear.

You may occasionally find me at our getaway cabin in Grapeview (Mason County), Washington. Rig there is an ICOM IC-746PRO and a Comet vertical (hey, it's stealth and meets the CCRs).

Other hobbies include tending to my two classic cars: 1960 Nash Metropolitan (ground-up restoration) and 1975 Chevrolet Cosworth Vega, cooking and collecting fountain pens.
When I'm not hamming most weekdays, I'm probably working at our familybusiness in Seattle. http://www.metropolitanappliance.com.
I look forward to seeing you soon on the air.
Good health, 73 and DX - Jeff
