Radio Sports...it's a contact sport.
One of my favorite aspects of this hobby is contesting. My most recent contests were CQ WW SSB and the IL QSO Party.

My Working Conditions
I have many radios to play with. Main one I use is an Icom 7800. Too many antennas to list, but enclosed is a 3 1/2 minute video I made for Ham Nation of all the antennas used here on the farm.
I am a member of: The Northern CA DX Foundation , The Metro DX Club , The Greater Milwaukee DX Association ,The Society of Midwest Contesters , Maxim member of the ARRL, The W/K Field day Group , and INDEXA. I am also an ARRL VE. I was the N.A. pilot station for Amsterdam Island FT5ZM in 2014, Wake Island K9W in 2013 and Swains Island NH8S in 2012.
Besides my obsession with amateur radio, I enjoy camping, traveling, hiking, fishing, bowling, gardening, and baking. I have also taken some sailing and flying lessons.
Here I am in my shack with my dog Skipper nicknamed K3POD since she is a rescue with only 3 legs
Here I am operating the 2013 WPX RTTY contest from WB9Z's amazing shack.
We broke the 1st place 9-land record and made top 5 USA all time record for multi-single.
This is at the end of the 48 hour contest = No sleep, no shower, no make up.
Below is my boyfriend's magnificent assortment of antennas.
But that's not what attracted me to him, well maybe a little (lol).
Here I am operating the special event station at the 2011 EAA Fly in.
Talk about your high noise levels.Except it wasn't plasma TV's or power lines,
it was jets and war birds with radial engines.
This QRP radio was my very first home brew project. And~~~ it worked on the 1st try!!!
This is WB9Z's custom-made 80 meter rotatable dipole.It's about 135' long and 5 7/8" at the center (YL not included).
I support the DX Code of Conduct
