Hello - I am Ken from Alma, ON Canada

I originally studied to obtain my license in the winter of 1975. However life and circumstances got in the way. There was a severe March snowstorm, that prevented me from attending my examination appointment day. Long story short I never did rebook the exam, but I never lost the desire to obtain my ham ticket.

Spring of 2012, I finally took the exam and received a Basic with Honours license some 35 years later!!  So another item checked off my bucket list ! Then I was off to build my station and the rest is history.  

Radios: Elecraft 3, ICOM 746, Icom IC910h + Yaesu FT-847, Yaesu FT 817 QRP rig, Yaesu FT8000 mobile, and a restored Yaesu FTDX 400

Antennas; Alpha Delta Dipole, Force 12 C3 Tribander, InovAntenna LFA 144 & 70cm LFA432 on a TX-455 55 foot tower. Have 6 meter TGM yagi on a restored 40 ft "Paul Bunyan Whip" tower.

I have a great HAM shack in my sunroom - so there is lots of sunlight and moonlight. It is agreat place to sit and HAM (just ask my Cat). I don't get as much time as I would like to play radio, but I enjoy every minute I do get. Work is still getting in the way of my hobbies.

I enjoy going to hamfests and field days, motorcycles & photography.

This past year I have been trying to  find time to re-learn and practice CW and obtain my code certification. I had learned it 1975 but it has left me.

Looking forward to meeting you on the HF bands !!   I'm also hooked on 2 meter & 70cm SSB so you may find me there too.

73's
