Hello - I am Ken from Alma, ON Canada
I originally studied to obtain my license in the winter of1975. However life and circumstances got in the way - there was a severe March snowstorm, that prevented me from attending to my examination appointment day. Long story short I never did rebook the exam, but I never lost the desire to become an amateur radio operator.
In June 2012, I finally took the exam and received a Basic with Honours license some 35 years later!! I have been gathering equipment and antennaes ever since!! So there's another item checked off my bucket list !!
Radios: Elecraft 3, ICOM 746, Icom IC910h + Yaesu FT-847
Antennaes;DX-B Sloper & Force 12 C3i, InovAntennaLFA 144 & 70cm LFA432 on a TX-455 55 foot tower. Have 6 meter TGM yagi on a resurrected 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 Ienjoy 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.
My winter project is 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, VHF/UHF bands !! Over the past 12 months I've also got hooked on 2 meter & 70cm SSB so you may find me there too.
