Finally back on the air after a string of a few years. First received my Novice class in 1973, followed by my General back in Ohio in 1976 and finally got around to getting the Extra in 2014.
Current rig in is a Kenwood TS-830S for most of my work but often turn to a Yaesu FT-857D to quickly hop around bands. Often operating <100W but have a beautiful Collins 30L-1 when a bit more power is needed. Main antenna is a self-designed and built 4 band compact Yagi mounted at 30' with 2 elements on 20 and 17 meters and parasitic dipoles on 15 and 12 meters which have about 4 dB gain over a solitary dipole. Backup antenna is a Cushcraft R8 vertical.
Great to be back and hope to talk with you again soon!
Please QSL via LoTW if possible as I'm working on several ARRL awards there. Many thanks,
