I've orbited the sun 54 times. For 17 of those orbits, I have been a licensed radio amateur, June 26 1997.

My first experience to wireless radio was as a small boy riding in my Dad's pickup. Mounted on top the dash was a Ridicom,tube type,11 meter radio and a big 106" steel whip mounted on the pickup box. His call was KLH-5604. I wasn't tall enough to look out the windshield yet so I would stare at that radio as we went down the road. I remember my amazement when I first saw him talk to somebody that was 30 miles away. So that's probably where I caught the bug. I bought my first 11 meter radio, A Hy-Gain 23 channel,when I was in junior high school. My call was KJG-4755.I didn't yet have a drivers license so I installed it in my Dad's newer pickup with twin mirror mount antennas. During the summer I would set in the truck long into the night talking, but mostly listening to the radio.
Then came the years of girls and cars. Although I did still have a radio in my 1971 Torino GT,along with a106"steel whip. I had allot of fun in that car, but the radio part was down the list aways. I even dated my YL in that car. Her call is KC0GKV. The car came to an end when I met a cow in the middle of a countryroad on a very dark moonless night.
Wife and kids came next, but I managed to expand into scanner monitoring and then shortwave listening. And this is where ham radio came in. While looking at catalogs to improve my shortwave radio I compared the prices of shortwave and Ham gear, I noticed for a little more I could buy a Ham rig with general coverage receive, and with a license talk as well. And I've been having a ball ever sense. I do allot of the digital modes with JT65 and RTTY being my favorites. But always playing with the others and any new ones that come along. Satellites are allot of fun as well. I get a chuckle any time I hear someone say the bands are dead. When I run digital on the HF radio, Icom 746, and satellites on the Icom 910 its like a contest everyday, something is ALWAYS on.
 
The email address above is checked daily. I also have kc0bmf@gmail.com that only I check, and sometimes I might miss a day or 2.
 
More to come
