New ham as of Dec 2010.
Studying for Extra exam.PASSED exam on 4/21/12.
I enjoy the digital modes, DStar and working on my WAS award.
DX Engineering 10-80 vertical. Coax is buried and the ground radials are in place. 36 radials at 32 feet long. See attached picture for the radials and base of antenna.
5/18/13 Confirmed all 50 states for my WAS and 76 confirmed countries so far.
Changed callsign from KC9TJZ to ND9E on 6/29/12.
10/21/12 Operated portable in the IL QSO Party. Made 178 contacts running on batteries and solar panel charger. Picture below is the setup for IL QSO Party. Red tool box is my power center for field work. Box has meters that show voltage and charge/discharge of batteries. It also contains solar charge controller, DC booster, USB port and cig plug socket. It was interesting watching it discharge on TX and then recharge during RX. Meter panel folds down into the box and lid latches when not in use.
4/28/13 Just received a SRD-RTL device and have it working on WinSDR software. It is fun to play with on VHF. Now I need to get the HF upconverter.
5/11/13 Played around in my first 6 meter sprint and had a great time.
5/18/13 Made my first trip to Dayton. Quite an experience.
