QSL image for KB2SGJ

My station : Located about 15 miles northwest of New York City ( 69 feet / 21 meters above sea level ) my Yaesu FT-920 is runnning "barefoot" 100 watts into a dipole antenna , about 30 feet in the air. I enjoy working HF 40 through 10 meters. I also operate mobile, primarily on W2RN repeater - 443.75R - during my daily work commute. Thanks for checking out my page.

My childhood inspiration to become a ham radio operator :       wink

 

 

Curious backyard visitor.

 

Another curious backyard visitor comes to check out that wire strung up between my trees.

I've been saying for some time that I would work 100 countries  before considering an upgrade to my antenna system but I've had a change of heart ,  at least for now.  I get  tremendous satisfaction when I can get my signal heard with 100 watts and a dipole antenna. It still gives me a sense of wonder to be able to work a station on the other side of the world with such a simple setup.  I don't know that I would get the same satisfaction with a beam antenna running 1.5 kW.

Another reason to stay simple is to avoid getting caught up in the feeding frenzy ("Lidfest")  that occurs whenever a rare dx station appears.  It just seems to bring out the worst operating behavior in some folks.

Sure,  I enjoy working  dx.  It can be very frustrating to repeat my call about a hundred times and still not be heard, but keep in mind that this is just a hobby.    I'm having fun and there's no hurry. 

Status:     108  countries as of  4 / 21  / 14  !!!    smiley
