1st licensed in March of 2000, upgraded to General February of 2007. I never did succeed learning CW, so for me the dropping of the code requirement was great. Others might disagree, and I can understand that.
I'm Net Control for the Yo Yo Net on the Suring Wi. repeater, every Saturday nite at 8pm, 145.470, pl 114.8.Sure have a lot of fun doing that, but whoa unto whoever times out the repeater during a Net. The clock in the station picture is my Golden Yo Yo Award for being so careless, hihi.
Station consists of an IC 2350 on a Diamond X50 at 35', an FT8800 using a 16' Cushcraft dual bander or 2 10 element beams at 50' and 44' respectively, and an rfc2-417 amp on the beams.For HF there is a Kenwood ts450-sat and a Heil HC6 headset and W2IHY Equalizer into a 75M version of a Carolina Windom at 35' or an old Antron verticle for10 and 12 m's.
If you hear me "Up Nort" on HF, I have another TS 450s, KT100 tuner with MC60 Mike and a 160M Carolina Windom. Looking to add a 17M Delta loop when I can. "Up Nort" is 25 miles north of Suring, in the town of Silver Cliff, Marinette County, Wi. Love working DX and a good QSO.
Hope to catch you on the airwaves,
