Welcome! I was first licensed in 1992, and have enjoyed Amateur Radio ever since. I've tried many different areas of the hobby such as repeaters (had my own for a while), packet radio (14.105), 6 meters DX, VHF/UHF ssb, satellite operations (FM & SSB), HF RTTY, PSK31, etc. - and have enjoyed trying them all. I also enjoy kit building, tube-type equipment, and modifying commercial equipment for ham use (remember the AM-6154?).

I am currently active on HF (600W), 6M (100W), 2M (400W), 1.25M (400W), 70CM (50W), and 23CM(150W) SSB/FM/MS/TR/ETC. - if you would like to work FN41 on any band (I would be interested in any 1296 contacts), send me an email for a sked. I am slowly learning the code and not proficient enough yet to use it on the air - that's one thing I really need to improve on since all of the good DX is mostly CW. Beacons too.

The photo below shows my current VHF+ antenna array. I am using this for terrestrial DX as well as satellite contacts. From left to right are:

Cushcraft 13B2

222 7 element (Vertical - not right, I know.)

1296 loop yagi

M2 436CP30 With LH/RH polarity switch

On 6, I have a Cushcraft 5 element Yagi at 30' (on the roof).

Plans are to split the AZ/EL rotator and put 6 and 222 before the EL portion. That's after the tower is permanently planted! Right now it's ~20' AGL - well below the treetops as you can see. I'm OK in the winter, but as soon as the Oaks "wake up", I'm in a bit of trouble I'm sure.

When I do the shack over, I'll include one of those photos too. Right now it's too cluttered!

73.
