I have to admit, I do more monitoring than transmitting these days, but my radio is often on ISS APRS or set for WSPR or WSJT.

Linear satellites are another passion. My wife doesn't like large antennas on the house, so small yagis and an az-el were the best I could do. This works out well since I am able to work Europe and South America with my small setup. The guys on the satellites are a great bunch and with the help of K4FEG and UT1FG/mm we are able to get a lot of grids in the Atlantic and Pacific!

It was built in 1929.
