Licensed since 1967, I turned my avocation into a career in broadcasting, first in transmitter operations, then in the commercial antenna industry. I now work mostly on HF and MF international broadcast antennas in far flung places. Between 1973 and 2006 my pals K1RQG and W1GWU and I ran the Hosstraders hamfest in New Hampshire. We raised over 1.3 million dollars for the benefit of Shriners' Hospitals and had a ball doing it, but we are now retired from that effort.  The hamfest business has changed with the increase in internet commerce and some of the attitudes of the newer breed of amateurs. My shack is a combination of commercial and homebrew equipment, from the little FT817 up to my 4-1000 amplifier. The newest antenna is a two-element 80m horizontal driven array at 90 feet up on a catenary between two pine trees. It works so well that a second identical array has been built at right angles to the first, covering the world. Current projects in progress include a GS35B amplifier and an HPSDR transceiver locked to a rubidium frequency standard.   I'm fortunate that my sweetie, Carol, supports my activities and has never said a discouraging word about all the copper and aluminum that enhances the skyline of our home in the Maine woods, on the banks of a trout stream.
