Born in 1941, have had ham friends since 1958, listened on the side over many years.
Due to my farming background I ended up with a long career in Agricultural research.
In 2010 my golf deteriorated to such an extent that I joined the Summerland AR club instead.
I now use an Elecraft K3, with a KPA500 linear when appropriate,and a P3 panadaptor,
I have inverted V's for 40 and 80m hanging off the tower.
I also use an FT-897 when away in the caravan (we winter in the tropics), and for occasional digital modes.
I enjoyed flying my ultralight aircraft ("my motor bike with wings") from the farm most Sundays until May of this year-- but only if the forecast winds were compatible with landing back in my small paddock again.
I flew it off my "airstrip" (see Detail / Satellite) for 15 years, but was advised to give it up as my eyesight had detiorated.
Ultralight safely back in hangar with macadamia harvester parked in front.
