I've been a ham since 1962. CW, especially contesting has always been my favorite activity. Occasionally I'll make a digital contact, but always looking for CW contacts first.
Rig: K3, KPA500, KAT500, Mosley mini 32a, 6m 5 el LFA, G5RV.
Active on 6m and 2m Meteor Scatter. Just getting into EME with a patio mounted 4 X 2m7 H and 300W.
I have been a rover in the Texas Qso Party for the last few years, and plan to continue in 2011 with even more counties. (CW only).
Look for me on just about any cw contest.

Below is the desk setup for the Texas QSO Party, September 2010. Myself and Mark, K5GQ took turns operating and driving. We covered 30 counties, over 800 miles in two days, and made over 900 Qs on CW 40 and 20 meters. That's Marks K2 and my IC 706. After using his K2 for the contest, I bought a K3 with the sub rcvr which we plan to use in 2011 contest. Had a variety of antennas mounted off the four corners of the pickup bed, which worked quite well. Next year we will try to have an amplifer running as well, and spend more time on 40m.
