I was first interested in ham radio in the early 60s as a 10 year old. I passed the code portion of the Novice but missed the written exam by 1 question.
Sports, work and other interests then took over and I finally returned to ham radio in 2012, passing my Technician in March, my General in June and my Extra in August.
The station is currently a Yaseu VX-8 HT for VHF, UHF and an Alinco DX-SR8 for HF connected to a G5RV temporarily mounted at 25'. A quick update - I have added a QSO King at 35' and am using that most of the time when on air. The G5RV is now mounted at about 30' in a more permanent location. I recently upgraded to a Kenwood TS-480HX, enjoying the 200 watts.
QTH is Fidalgo Island, in the state of Washington. Fidalgo Island was part of IOTA NA-065 until a few years ago when RSGB reviewed out IOTA status and found that we do not meet the 200 meter seperation from their mainland critieria. We are US Islands WA-002S.
QSL via LOTW
73 and hope to hear you on air. - Dan
