Hello and thanks for stopping by. Good to see you.
Many moons ago in high school I got my novice ticket at 16 and shortly afterwards a technician liscense (WA9WPQ). After building a Knight T-60 transmitter and rounding up a very used Knight R-100 reciever I finally had "The Ultimate Station." The obligatory home made diapole was strung between trees in the back yard. After somehow getting the rock bound T-60 working, I fell out of my chair when another novice from Pensicola, Florida replied to my cw CQ. All the way from Florida to Chicago! Magical. I'm pretty sure you can relate.
Soon college, grad school, career, marriage and family came along and I went QRT for 4 decades. But in December 2012 I rediscovered Amateur radio and am now exploring all of the relatively newer facets of the hobby (i.e., the digital stuff).
I've been working with PSK31, JT65-HF, JT-9, APRS, EchoLink on Android, and CW as well as 2 meters / 440 in the Jeep - and have also been poking around ROS. I hope to contact you on many bands in many modes.
Logs sent to eQSL(AG), HRDLOG, and LOTW.
The photo below is me and my two sons. My younger son (on the right) recently got married so we snapped his last free moments.
Thanks for reading and hope to speak with you soon.
