Thank you for your interest, and should we have worked your contact. This is a great hobby and although I've been doing this since 1975 I am still thrilled to think a radio wave can connect us to each other!

Like most things in life you grow to appreciate different aspects of things as time moves by. My current passion is HF contesting. Primarily SSB with some CW, but my interest in RTTY and PSK31 is returning so maybe that will be in my contesting future soon. Thank you very much if we worked in a contest. I've some certificates to put on the wall and it is because of you that they are there. If you are hearing me call CQ for a contest and you are unsure of how to respond because you are not a contester, give me a call and I'll walk you through what I need. Then you will know what to do when you run across someone else you want to work later on.

I have a modest station. A Kenwood TS590 gives me 100 watts. There is a Bencher Skyhawk beam for 10, 15 and 20 meters. It works, somewhat, on 12 and 17 too.The main antenna for 40 and 80 is a top loaded 33 foot vertical mounted on a section of Rohn 25 about 7 feet off the ground. I also use a 520 foot horizontal loop for 160 through 15. It isn't very happy playing on 10 meters, but it will do it in a pinch.At an average of only 25 ft high it works best for local stations, but I use if for DX every now and then. A commercial K9AY loop, two loops perpendicular to each other actually, is my receive antenna for 80 and 160 meters

I use N1MM for my logging program (operation now is almost exclusively contesting) and a MicroHAM microKEYER II for an interface.

Recently begun to learn DSTAR for our local emergency group and have an IC51.
