Hi and thanks for looking me up on QRZ. I am 66 years old and been hamming for 28 years CW only. My first love in ham radio next to CW is DXing. I belong to the Centeral Arizona DX Association, and spend as much time as possible chasing the new ones. I was out of the hobby for one year in 2008 but since then very active.
I am married to my wonderful wife Judy of 37 years, ( she just puts up with me) and have two wonderful kids and 3 grandkids. I am a retired tool and die maker. My operating conditions consist of a IC-756 Pro 2, along with a Ameritron AL-811H amp. CW being my love I use a Begali simplex, a Vibroplex Racer, a Bencher and have an assortment of straight keys. Nothing makes my day complete like a good CW contact at the end of it. My antennas consist of 3 element yagi for 10,15,20 and a shunt fed sloper for 40,80,160 plus a vertical for 10,15,20,30,40 & 80, and a 6 meter vertical just added. I hope we have had a chance to chat on the air and if not I always look forward to another CW Q in the log. Working my way towards DXCC Honor Roll, (24 to go yet) if I live that long, and just enjoying the best hobby in the world.
LONG LIVE MORSE!!
