I started ham radio back in 1961.I got started with shortwave listening using a Knight-kit Ocean Hopper.Over the years i got the dx bug and i worked 200 plus countries,next i got into AM operations with some heavy metal tube type rigs like the T-368 and WRL Globe King 500s.Now days i own a Johnson Ranger with my favorite receiver the Hammarlund HQ-150.My antenna farm has a Force 12 C-3 tribander, Fan dipole 80,40,30 meters 3 element M2 6 meter beam at 70 ft and a quarter wave sloper for 160 meters.Iwork all modes with alittle digital.Iam on the air just about everyday monitoring most of the bands.
Being so close to beautiful Ky Lake i also go fishing in the spring and fall seasons.Its hard to beat some pan-fried crappies for dinner.Iam also a big sports fan.I follow the Chicgo Bears and the Chicago White Sox along with the Black Hawks.I was a big NASCAR fan for awhile but that has faded out.Its not the same without the number 3 wrecking everyone.
I will see you in the pileups.
