Hi, thanks for stopping by. Good to see you.

Many moons ago as a 16 yr old high school student I got my novice ticket then shortly upgraded to technician (WA9WPQ).  After building a Knight T-60 transmitter kit and rounding up a very used Knight R-100 receiver and a banged up Heath-Kit Twoer, "The Ultimate Station" was born. :-)

After somehow getting the rock bound T-60 working (novices couldn't use a VFO) and stringing a home- made dipole between the trees, a faint, undulating signal barely made it above the noise. Another novice in Pensacola, Florida was replying to my CW CQ. All the way from Florida to Chicago! Magical. I'm sure you've been there.

Soon college, marriage, career, grad school, and family came along and I went QRT for 4 decades-  but in December 2012  rediscovered Amateur radio. I'm 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.  

Below is me and my two sons. My younger son (on the left) recently got married so we snapped his last free moments.

Thanks for reading and hope to speak with you soon.
