Hello, I was introduced to amateur radio by a OM down the street from me,W8QFQ,Kent. when I was a Cub Scout back in 1968.In 1972- I was a Lone Eagle Scout . KN8WGX,WB8LJY ,WB8THW,W8ABQ,W8CMA and K8DD were my CW Mentors ,they helped me build a few tube rigs,40/80 Verticals I had lots of fun with those Elmers, Hank, K8DD was a DX hound and a very good cw operator,we had long QSOs abt DX and Propagation,he got me into QRPp in 94. Ive held the 1st radiotelephone-with radar indorsement- the 2nd class radio telegraph with the GDMS and radar ,all expired now--. I have elmered many Novices, gave many exams.I think all amateur radio oprs.should have a working knowledge of the code, It was a sad day when the FCC ended the cw requirements- I operate 99% cw...I am a Life member of the ARRL.-Life member of WFF #300, A-1 Operators Club -SKCC #118T- FH#114-10-10 #12581-GACW#893-FP#1267-30MTRDG#2558-EPC#8221-NAQCC#1034-MIQRP#1696-GERITOL #1991-DMC #2993,BOZO #900 QSL Society-.Active SKYWARN storm watcher/reporter..I like Real paper QSls-and enjoy getting them. I enjoy DXing /Rag Chewing . I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson motorcycles,been riding HD since 17. -Be carefull letting your children listen, it is terrible the language you will hear now at anytime-The FCC has little budget and only enforces the worst offenders (sometime) they really do not care they have many other agendas .Sorry/ few can repair their equipment and really give a Signal Report or carry on in a decent conversation,Read and understand an ARRL Operating Manuel would help,using a PC/ Code copy machine is never going to work to copy CW reliably,Use your Brain. Sure has changed so much in the last 40 yrs- .I DO NOT CONTEST, I Call Them QRMTESTs . The Good Overwhelms the Bad in this Endeavor of Amateur Radio,we need to reach out and instruct/show how to operate,act,build- be ones " Elmer" take control and be an Example by leading theYoung/Old -How to Do it Correctly....... I like to contact Special Event Stations-they have interesting QSLs. My Log Books are open from 1972 to present-I Enjoy Real Paper QSLs ,I like the Stamps,Postmarks on Direct QSLs and the QSL cards-a QSL is the Final Acknowledgement of a Contact.... My Logs Will be Open Untill My SK and My Amateur License Expires. ..... I send many QSLs direct-If a DXpedition I wait for 3 mos to a yr,same with a Rare DXCC. Help to avoid the rush at Managers QTH- Sent direct at todays rate Ist Class-QSL,Envelope,$2-3 USD-Global US Stamp $ 1.10 , Thats $4.50 +/- send 10/20 out every month,some 2/3 times over a few yrs,SOME Will NEVER QSL.My Return Rate is 83 % THIER are those that Never QSL .....
