Hello, Thanks for looking me up!
For radios, I have a Kenwood TS-2000 and also the Kenwood TS-520 that I bought used when I was a kid and now have on the air again. My HF antenna is an OCF dipole. I really enjoy working the HF bands on SSB and especially CW.
This is my vintage [about the same age as me :) ] Kenwood setup. To me, these radios are very cool.
Another ham interest is the amateur satellites---Wow what an awesome way to make a qso! I have lots of fun working the FM & linear transponder birds.
I am a fan of LOTW, although I still enjoysending and receiving qsl cards, so if you have sent me one, I will be returning one to you. Will upload to eQSL on request.
Occasionally use APRS as KB0VXN-9 with iPhone and OpenAPRS app, and KB0VXN-7 with Yaesu VX-8GR HT. You can also find me on Twitter @MikeKB0VXN.

Worked a few satellite passes as KB0VXN/VE3 while fishing in Ontario, Sept. 2014
Working a zero degree SO-50 satellite pass. That's zero degrees Fahrenheit, not elevation. I really need to think about an indoor sat. station. :)
