I have been an Amateur Radio operator since 1990. I enjoy using the radio to keep up with friends and discover new things that I can do with the hobby . My favorite bands are 50 MHz, 144 MHz, 222 MHz & 432 MHz.
I enjoy going on mountaintopping trips with my friends into Southwestern Virginia to work the VHF/UHF bands. The elevation where we camp is ~5700 ft which is not bad for the East Coast. We often stir up quite a crowd on 50, 144, 222& 432 MHz using both FM & USB modes.
