Hi, and thanks for checking my page. I started in ham radio in high school (1968) in Maryland with the help of Bill Cole K3YBN. Bill was a metal shop teacher and held morse code class after school. To this day, morse code is still a lot of fun and I have made many QSO's which would not have been possible without CW mode! I caught the 2 meter and VHF weak signal bug while stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center near Chicago. Got active on 2M from Illinois and received 2M VUCC number 4 as well as 432 VUCC. I have since obtained 6M VUCC working from eastern Maine.
I Retired recently! I worked as a tech support engineer for Keysight Technologies (ex-HP Agilent) out of my garage in what the XYL called "the barn". We moved in December 2014 to a new QTH and new Grid, FN54 Hermon Maine, near Bangor. The new QTH appears to be good for VHF grid chasing, and weak-signal work. The snow finally melted, and antenna work continues. Plans for 2M, 6M, 432 beams, and HF wires.
Ham radio has taught me a lot, and keeps me out of trouble. Not really, it presents a lot of trouble, but that's life, HI. Drop a line or I'll catch you on the bands. 73 de KT1R ex N9KC ex WN3KGC ex WA3KGC ex NNN0PVP -- XYL is KN1TME (yes, she knits!!!) ex- N9IGA
"NEW" GRID FN54mt (as of December 2014) -- FN64 from October 2010 until December 2014.
Feel free to call me any time, for schedules, QSL info or a rag chew... 207-605-0263
Note--As of April 2016, new 432 antenna 15 elements fixed SW ready to test. I no longer have to use the 2M beam on 432, Hi. On 2M 14 elements, on 6M 5 elements. Soon to add another 10 feet to the 6M/2M tower (trees are overtaking it).
If you need a QSL card for contacts with me from FN64 before December 2014, send me a card or just email me. I have plenty of FN64 QSL cards available. Also, I now print my own QSL cards for the new QTH.
VUCC on 6M 2M and 432
