NEWEST INTEREST IN HAM RADIO, SINCE OCTOBER, 2012 --- Digital modes! I now operate nearly 75% on BPSK-31 on 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30, 40 & 80 meters!! Digital modes are my newest challenge --- and we all need a new challenge, right? Also renewed my RTTY interests after 15 years and I can be found on digital RTTY these days as well -- all digital operations are using my IC-7000 with tuner at 45 watts to wire antennas or yagi!
Amazing what you can work with 45 watts, a GOOD automatic tuner,
and most any length of wire antenna!!
Thank you for reading my profile and no doubt also QSO'ing with me!!! See you 'down the log!'
THAT'S WHAT 53+ YEARS AS A "HAM" WILL ACCUMULATE!!!
Plus lots & lots more!!
