I've been a ham since 1988 at the age of 13. My science teacher taught an after school ham radio class. By 1989 I was an extra class ham. Over the years I was mostly active with a few years where I didn't have a station due to living someplace I could not get a decent antenna up. In recent years I'm on the air almost every day.
Some of my interests in Ham Radio include CW, QRP, building radios, operating portable QRP, vintage radios, low earth orbit satellites, digital modes (rtty, hellschreiber, sstv, jt-65, psk-31), chasing DX, D-Star, 6 meters, building antennas, and my latest activity - moonbounce on 2 meters. I'm always looking at new things to try in the hobby.
My wife and I bought our first home a few years ago so I've been enjoying having outdoor antennas again. Antennas here are 102ft dipole with 600 ohm feedline up about 60-70 feet, M2 3el 6m yagi on the roof, and a 1/4 wave 2/440 vertical at the peak of the roof.
Hope to see you on the air!
