Ham radio is a great hobby and I enjoy it immensely. I don't have much time for it but I appreciate every contact.
I was first licensed in 1960 as WV2KIZ when I was in Junior High School. Later that year I passed the General class test and received the call WA2KIZ. I was very active all through high school and college, but the activity went to almost nothing until a few years ago.
Rig is a Kenwood TS-2000 running 100 watts. Antennas are a Cushcraft R-7000 vertical for 10-40, an 80 mtr dipole, a homebrew multiband dipole for 40, 20 and 15 and 6 mtrs., a homebrew 5 el 6 mtr yagi and a 14 el Hygain 2 mtr yagi. Ground planes get me on 2 mtrs and 70 cm. repeaters.
It took me over 50 yrs, but I just received my WAS-phone certificate (all LoTW confirmations)! It took only just over a year of 6 mtr work to qualify for 6M VUCC (all LoTW confirmations).
I QSL via LoTW, eQSL, direct & buro.
