I enjoy working HF mobile, usually the morning 40 meter nets, and DX on 15 and 17 meters with my Yaesu FT-100. I keep in touch with friends on Echolink as well. Now that 10 meters is picking up, I'll be found there too. I also work PSK31 on 20 meters from time to time.
An Icom IC-706 MKII with an LDG Tuner takes care of the fixed base operations, with a Pentium II helping the digital modes.
A Hustler 4-BVT on the back of the house handles the 100 watt emissions.
Over the years, and antenna space permitting, I've enjoyed working some of the Amateur satellites, especially MIR, just before it was allowed to return to Earth, as well as the International Space Station when Col. Susan Helms was aboard.
I also fly R/C model airplanes, shoot friendly competition with .22 rifle and pistol, and shoot digital photos as well, as exampled by my homemade QSL card. It shows the highest point in Arizona, The San Fransisco Peaks at 12,633', in the background, while the Verde Valley, where I live,is in the foreground. .
A well equipped PC lets me digitize my vinyl collection, compose and edit photo and video projects occupying the rest of my time.
Retiring in the beautiful Verde River Valley has renewed and deepened my interest in outdoors activities.
