I am now retired! My favorite band is 10 meters, but when it's not open I can be found on most any HF band, including 6 meters. I don't collect QSL cards, but if you really want one from me, you can send me a self-addressed envelope and I will send you one. I log my contacts to eQSL. Right now, my HF equipment consists of an Icom IC-746 (just bought on 5-4-14), a Kenwood TS-520S backup tranceiver with MC-50 mic, a Kenwood TS-430S, MC-60 microphone and matching AT-250 tuner plus AT-200 tuner for the random wire, three 10 meter QRP rigs, a converted 40 channel Robyn SB-510D, a Realistic TRC-448 and a converted 23 channel Midland mobile that I built into an old SBE base station cabinet with an N3ZI digital VFO, running barefoot into an NA4RR Hexbeam at 35 ft., plus a random wire, inverted L antenna and a homebrew Carolina Windom for 10 thru 40 meters. My shack is solar powered and almost all my equipment runs on DC. I used to take the Midland to work, where I had a vertical antenna on the roof. I also enjoy astronomy and playing ice hockey. UPDATE: Just passed the Extra on 04-14-12 and got my vanity call on 05-18-2012.  I've been a ham since 1978 and have gotten back into CW after more than 30 years of phone.  I'm mostly using a straight this time instead of my homebrew keyer.  My SKCC# is 13136.

My modest gear.

Here I am outside my shack showing off a new Hexbeam and my ten incher, a homebrew Newtonian reflector on a Dobsonian mount, which I motorized.

I have a four incher in the shed, but it's not as fun to brag about, hi.

Here's a shot of the moon I took with the 10 inch scope and my old Mavica camera.

There are a lot of interesting critters out here in the desert, like

THREAD SNAKES,

HAWKS,

HORSES,

EMUS,

WHIP SCORPIONS,

SPINY LIZARDS,

TARANTULAS,

GREAT HORNED OWLS,

AND DIAMONDBACK RATTLERS, TO NAME A FEW. THIS ONE WAS IN THE BACK YARD.
