Greetings from Eugene, home of the Oregon Ducks.
I was originally licensed in 1984 at age 15. I started with CB and SWLing at age 10.
Had my extra a month before I turned 18, which was lucky because I never would have had time to study for it in engineering school.
I operate primarily CW/QRP, although I occasionally work SSB as well.
I am a semi-serious contester, and avid DXer. If I need to nab a new one, I will sometimes crank the rig up to 25 or 30 watts.
I'm also dad of two small children, and I have a full-time engineering job, which means I don't have much time for any of the above pursuits.
Thanks to all of the great ops with great ears out there.
I am lucky enough to have a home on a hill, 500 feet above the valley floor, with a nice downward slope to the southwest, giving me great access to the DX entities throughout the Pacific rim. Oh, and the sunsets are gorgeous whenever it finally stops raining.
I am also an avid scrabble player (at www.isc.ro), and enjoy cycling and other outdoor pursuits when I'm not recovering from injuries suffered during enjoyment of those outdoor pursuits.
I'm an alumni member of Univ. of MD ARA (W3EAX, the tower of power).
Have at times been involved with Laurel (MD) ARC, Valley Radio Club of Oregon.
ARRL life member.
DXCC, WAS, WAC achieved long ago. Probably eligible for a few DXCC endorsements but I don't have the time.
I want to get going on LOTW but, hey, all of these paper logs.I'd need to hire an intern to data enter them :)
ex-KA3NJI, November 1984 - January, 1987 ex-NF3I, January, 1987 - Dec. 31, 1998
72, 73, good DX & TU for visiting. See you on the bands!
