My 10 year old daughter Emma, in her first contest. Now, she is KG7GEX!
Thanks for all our QSOs and thanks for looking me up on QRZ.COM.
I discovered ham radio in the early 80s. In 1987 I learned CW and worked towards my first license. I was on air as Y38WF for a couple of years. From 1990 to 1997 I was DL6UST taking part in many contests, from the current DP9A station, mostly CW and HF. Other, possibly more important things took over in my life until 2002. Then, I got hooked again with the help of an Elecraft transceiver kit, the K2. I got licensed as KU7T and on the air with a small backyard dipole. Since 2012, I am on the air from a larger and mountaintop property. I am constantly trying to improve my antennas that help me work DX. My first HF yagi, the SteppIR DB18, rocks the air waves since December 2012.
I love HF contests and working DX, mostly in CW. My oldest daughter is 9 and is starting to help me in the contests.
I am hoping that I can run M/S in contests someday with my kids helping me. We will see :-). For the major contests of the year, I am member of the W7VJ multi crew; otherwise I like to participate casually in other contests from my home station.
