QSL Card from early 1980s

The old QSL card from the early 1980's - notice the Commodore VIC-20 and black & white monitor for RTTY

I got my license in 1983 while still in High School. I was living in Fremont, CA. At that time you had to take the code test for the Extra Class license at an FCC field office. I remember going to the field office in San Francisco taking the 20wpm test while listening to construction crews with jackhammers out the window causing a little QRM - passed the test with no problem. After a few antennas and rigs later my station settled for many years with a three element quad at 60', Butternut HF6V (mainly for 40M/80M), Yaesu FT-102 transceiver and a home-brew 4-1000A (grounded grid configuration). I worked a lot of great DX from that location. After getting married and moving up north (Santa Rosa, CA) I went QRT in 1996 only to get my station back on the air in the summer of 2011. My main interest is still CW but will chase the DX wherever it happens to be.

If anyone needs a QSO for the WPX award feel free to email me to setup a sched.

73 and hope to see you on the air!
