Hello my friend, nice to QSO with you! February 21, 2014 marks my 36th anniversary of being a licensed Amateur Radio Operator. It has been a very enjoyable and sometimes challenging hobby, but that's what makes it so much fun!
The working conditions are an Elecraft K3 and K2/100, and Elecraft KPA500 amp. The HF antennas are a Mosley TA-63N and an HF9V ground mtd. vertical. Paducah has been my home since 1986. My review of the TA-63N is on EHAM Reviews.
I received a transplant, after living with PSC for over 11 years. PSC is a rare, auto-immune liver disease, that causes chirrosis and eventually death. I am thankful to God, my Donor family, excellent surgeons, and my precious wife. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jqVNHqgR9A www.organdonor.gov http://www.pscpartners.org PLEASE, SIGN YOUR ORGAN DONOR CARD, THANK YOU!!!
