I have been interested in amateur radio for quite some time, and I finally decided to get my license in January 2011. Since that time I have been learning constantly about this great hobby. My main interest when I began was HF. Since becomming a Ham I have found I also enjoy VHF/UHF for local and Net use. Most recently I have started practicing CW and anticipate taking the exam soon. With so many ways to enjoy Amateur Radio I think I will be involved for a long time.
100% return QSL. No SASE required. I try to use limited edition stamps on my QSL envelopes when available for those who collect them.
This is a copy of the QSL card I am currently using. 100% return QSL direct or via bureau. I also use LOTW and EQSL. As well, I upload my log here at QRZ regularly. I am frequently away from home for work, so it sometimes takes a while to respond but I will as soon as I can.
My antenna tower as of 2012. The tower is a 15m free standing unit from DMX. Antennas are a HyGain TH2 MK3 2 element tri-band yagi and a 10m vertical by Sirio. My shack is at the base of the tower attached to the back of my garage.
An FTdx 401 that I bought in unknown condition. After several hours on the bench and many more cleaning I am happy to say it is working very well. This radio is a lot of fun to operate and the receive audio is excellent. This is the radio that I made my first HF contact on. I don't use it a lot anymore but when I do I really enjoy it.
Mandolin working on her CW skills. She is currently at about 5 WPM.
That's 5 Woofs Per Minute.
