Originally licensed in 1976, then went inactive in late 80's, now re-licensed just this year (2011). I am a 59 y/o emergency room physician and have scores of other things I dabble in including music (play cello for local symphony orchestra), astronomy and astrophotography, and flying (built a Kitfox in 1991). LOTW is preferred QSL. I'm slow with cards but try and get to them, especially if accompanied by SASE.
Current rig is a Yaesu FT-1000MP through an MFJ 998 Auto Tuner and Ameritron AL-811H amplifier into an NA4RR Hexbeam at 11 meters elevation. For lower bands, there's a 285 ft horizontal delta loop erected as a rectangle at about 25 feet. Also, a homemade ground mounted 1/4 wave 40m monoband vertical. Mic is Heil PR-781 into Behringer pre-amp/mixer. I work most all modes but definitely prefer CW. Newer digital modes are coming into favor lately such as JT65 and JT9.
