I go by Greg. I started ham radio as a teen back in 1968 and enjoyed it very much. I dropped out in my thirties and now I am back into the hobby after about 25 years. In 2008, I started over with the technician and had KJ4DEQ for a few weeks. Then I got my original call WB4JFW back. However, I am now N4KGL based on my initials. I upgraded to extra class in 2009.
I have found the Straight Key Century Club and am enjoying collecting their numbers. CW was alway my favorite mode. Just make it more interesting I usually run 5 watts QRP on my ICOM 703 plus. I plan to use the 703 for portable operations whenever I can.
My antenna of choice is a doublet fed with ladderline tuned multiband. I am using Ham Radio Deluxe for logging/rig control and DM780 for PSK31. The computer/rig interface is the xggcomms cable.
I also have been doing rocketry for about six years. I Have many friends in our rocket club SouthEast Alabama Rocketry Society. Some are hams also. Visit the www.sears572.com web site and checkout our launches in Samson, AL.
I use eQSL.
