Hello!

Originally got my Novice way back in 1974 and worked 40 meter CW with a crystal-controlled Heathkit. I was not active for many years, but got back into the hobby during the summer of 2013, a year before my license expired! surprise

I am running a Yaesu FTdx-3000 into a homebrew fan dipole at the top of the house, mounted by the chimney, cut for 40 (15 on third harmonic), 17, 12, and 10 meters. A second homebrew fan dipole at the side of the house operates on 20 and 30 meters. And yet a third near the same location is set for 17 and 15 meters - this one is for my second HF radio (FT-450) which I sometimes operate along with the FTdx-3000 using JT65 / JT9 on two different bands simultaneously! yes

For VHF / UHF I have the Yaesu FT-8800 plus two Baofeng UV-5R HTs. In the evenings I can crossband repeat (one-way) in the Man Cave from a UV-5R through the FT-8800 to local repeaters.

I'm also interested in software defined radio and use it to visually augment my HF SSB operating with a band spectrum/waterfall display using HDSDR. I use the cheap SDR dongles and upconverters (see pics below) to extend the dongle's range to HF. The SDR is integrated with my HF radio and Log4OM logging program using Omni-Rig.

I QSL via eQSL, LoTW, and QRZ but prefer paper QSLs now (no bureau please) until I get tired of buying postage. wink No need for SASE - just send 'em and I will reply 100%. Logs uploaded to QRZ, eQSL, LoTW, and Club Log frequently.

73, Mike
