I was first licensed in 1964 as a novice, then general class, in junior high. I started with very modest, homebrew equipment, then a DX-60 (working CW and AM) transmitter and a Drake 2B receiver. Replaced the DX-60 with a Hallicrafters HT-37 and worked that equipment for years on HF CW and SSB using quads, single and triband beams. Finally dumped the HT-37 and Drake 2B for a clean TS-520 that I used for a few more years. Over the years I have primarily worked HF, with some 2 mtr FM thrown in along the way. With the sunspots leaving HF in such bad shape in 2007/2008, I became interested in the HF digital modes. Currently run a TS-2000 and 3el yagi on HF. I also became very interested in satellite work and joined AMSAT. Then, over several months I pieced together the current station which consists of the TS-2000 and Directive Systems wide lobe yagis on 2mtrs and 70 cm (5 el/11 el) vertically polarized and fixed at 30 degs at about 35', mounted above the  HF yagi. No preamps and 2 ea. 70' feeds of LMR-400. I am using SatPC32 for predicting sat passes and controlling doppler. You will mostly find me on the linear sats- right now FO29 and AO7, and AO73 while it lasts , but I also occasionaly use my D7 and Elk handheld on SO50. I also am a regular user of the ISS digipeater and have made a number of ISS voice contacts.  I also use a 2M12 with az/el for 2m tropo, EME (JT65B )and MS. I also have a 4 element yagi on 6 mtrs sitting above the tribander.

Most recently I put together a second station at my occasional weekend home at 7000' in Big Bear Lake, Ca. (DM13) There I'm running another TS2000 with an end-fed 66' wire on HF, the same 2m and 70cm Directive System yagis on a tv rotator for the sats, and a Ringo ar-6 for 6 meters.

If you send me a QSL, you will definitely get one in return. No SASE necessary. I look forward to working you on the sats or maybe on HF. 73's, Craig
