Marsh near our house at high tide

 

I was first licensed in 2005 in New Jersey as a Technician, and then upgraded to General in 2008 after moving to Georgia. I really didn't start operating untill April 2009. I upgraded to Extra in Nov 2009. I was interested in Ham Radio as a teenager, but never got a license. So I had a late start in this great hobby after I retired.

My main radio setup is the K Line, a Elecraft K3 with a P3 panadapter, KPA500 amplifier, and a KAT500 tuner/antenna switch. My antennas are a K4KIO Hexagonal Beam at 35 ft mounted on my chimney, a CarolinaWindom 80M Compact (6-80m) OCF folded dipole with a vertical radiator which is at 60 ft and runs E-W.  I use a Heil GM5 desk mic. I employ Ham Radio Deluxe, HRD Logbook and DM780 and a microHam Digikeyer II interface for digital modes. I have a ICOM ID-880/DSTAR dual band  using a Diamond X200A vertical 1/4 wave dipole mounted in my attic. My HT is a Icom ID-51A which I also use in my vehicle augmented, with a Mirage dual band amplifier and mag mount Diamond antenna, as my mobile rig. For CW I use a Navy Flameproof or a J-38 straight keys or Vibproplex Iambic Deluxe paddles.

**** A good deal of the gear above was damaged or rendered OOC by a lightning strike in early August. Currently only antenna is the Hex Beam and half the K Line and the VHF capability is gone. Slowly rebuilding smiley

My current interests are primaryly HF DX, improving my CW; and lots of digital modes including PSK-31, WSPR, JT65-HFand JT-9, RTTY and APRS. I enjoy contesting, particularly RTTY DX contests and sometimes get time to do FM LEO Satellites using a portable rig with an Arrow dual band antenna. I belong to ARRL, OMISS (6925), SKCC (6518C). FISTS (15397), NAQCC(4703), QRP ARCI (14489) and my local club is the Coastal Amatuer Radio Society ( CARS) in Savannah, GA.

I prefer to QSL direct and will reply to all, SASE not requird. I reguarly upload to LOTW and eQSL; but don't often get to QRZ logbook entries.

I had a career in the US Navy for 30 years and retired in 1996. I served on six ships (an AKA or attack cargo ship; an AO or fleet oiler; two DDGs; a DD997 Spruance class destroyer and an Aegis crusier). Spent the other half of my time ashore, mostly in Washingtod DC. After the Navy. I worked for Lockheed Martin in New Jersey and Washingotn DC, retiring in 2005.

My wife and I live about 20 minutes southeast of Savannah on Skidaway Island.

Look forward to meeting you and having a QSO, 73 Paul
