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 project - moonbounce on 23 cm. 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 2m/70cm vertical at the peak of the roof. Currently adding a 10 foot dish for 23cm EME.

Hope to see you on the air!

73,

James

This is the current shack photo (above)

This was my 2m EME setup (above). I had it setup at a friends house (it would not fit in my yard). I was QRV in 2012. 1kw via 8877 amp on the right on cw and jt-65b.

 This was my 2m EME array from 2012 (above). 4 x 9el yagis (yu7ef design) that I built. My friend loaned the tower and provided much help in getting everything up.

 Pixie II transceiver (above). I've made exactly 1 QSO with it so far. Building QRP rigs and putting them on the air is a lot of fun.
