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 of that. But I never lost the desire to obtain my ham ticket.

Fast forward to Spring 2012, I finally challenged the exam and received a Basic with Honours license some 35 years later!!  So another item checked off my bucket list !   

Radios: Elecraft 3, ICOM 746, Icom IC910h, Yaesu FT-847, Yaesu FT 817 QRP rig, Yaesu FT8800 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 the Cat). I don't get as much time as I would like to play radio, but I enjoy every minute I do get. Work seems to get in the way of my hobbies.

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

This past few years I have been trying to  find time to re-learn my CW skills and obtain my code certification (even though it is no longer required). I had learned it in 1975 but if you don't use it you lose it !  Any Elmering with CW will be appreciated.

I recently participated in a CW Demo at the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival and numerous people came forward & said "so you guys are still doing Morse Code in todays world why" ... well it works when other communications do not.

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.
