Ham radio has always been an interest of mine since I was in my early teens. Finally in the early part of 2012 with the help from my dear friend Bob (K4DU), I buckled down to study and pass both my Technician and General class licenses. I plan on taking the Extra Class exam some time in mid to late 2013.
After looking around for some time for used equipment, I came across someone who was relocating who could not take his equipment with him to his new place and purchased some of his equipment. I purchased from him his ICOM IC-746PRO, Carolina Windom antenna, Heil mic/headset combo with foot peddle, Bencher BY-1 Paddle, Signalink SL-1+, and a whole bunch of other peripherals, tools, coax, connectors, test equipment etc.
My station set up currently is fairly basic - on a card table. My Carolina Windom 160 antenna is up above the ground some 70 feet (21 meters). The photo's here on my QRZ page is of my set up, which is still tempory while I organize and build up the shack. I have a deicated tower running HRD, etc. I plan on adding a 2m radio as well as a few more'discreate' antennas by the fall of 2013.
I have been making good contacts and most of all, having a lot of fun talking with other hams. I got my sound card set up and started to play with digital back around February 2012 and have been making bunches of contacts there as well. Everyday I continue to learn more and enjoy this wonderful new hobby.
My QSL Info:
Currently I use eQSL.cc (AG) and LOTW. WhileI do enjoy receiving QSL cards direct,I currently do not have any QSL cards of my own printed to send out myself, sorry. I am however, working on a few different design idea's for my own cards and once I get some printed I will update this info.
I also have a YouTube page where I will be documenting some of my ham radio experiences, including QSO's, ham fest events, and even maybe a "How2" when I find there is a topic of interest and useful information to share to the rest of the community.
