I'm a CW operator and my interests are contesting, county hunting, and DX chasing. QSL via LOTW, except counting hunting via QSL or MRC.
My dad introduced me to the wonderful world of amateur radio when I was 10 years old. Together we built a Heathkit transmitter, bought a Hallicrafters receiver and made our first backyard dipote antenna. I received my novice license KN0YRQ shortly thereafter. Dad was licensed as K0IEX. He was the AM/SSB guy, and I was the CW guy. Dad is an SK now, but thanks dad for everything you did.
My community does not allow antennas, so my antennas are of the stealth variety. My permanent antenna is a 3 meter vertical covering 10-40 meters, For DX contests and other special events, I have a variety of fiberglass pole antennas that I put up for the weekend: delta loop, Moxon, vertical, etc. I would enjoy sharing ideas on stealth and small yard antennas.
