Thank you for the contact and visiting QRZ.com. My latest endeavor is JT9-HF.  Takes a little getting used to the process but more fun than you can imagine. There are many web sites about the mode. Try this ARRL site and move on from there.  http://www.arrl.org/have-a-great-time-with-jt9   K1JT gave a great presentation at the ARRL National Convention in Hartford this year.

Operated Field Day this year at the Norwood Amateur Radio Club at the Mansfield Airport. One of the locations for the WRTC contest where two stations were located.

Also operated Field Day this year with the Barnstable Amateur Radio Club located at Camp Greenough in Yarmouth MA. Great setup and the Club did an excellent job promoting Amateur Radio to visitors and Boyscouts at the site.

And...... WRTC..... Many of us have worked for the past three years on getting ready for the competition. I was Area Manager for four sites in the Freetown Forest area near Fall River MA. And also the Site Manager for the Ranger Station. My responsibility was overseeing Dighton Rock, Sweets Knoll, Breakneck Hill and the Ranger Station. The Ranger Station which was designated as a backup location was not needed. Took advantage and  operated the IARU / WRTC contest from the Ranger Station.  Great job by many of the local Amateurs and Radio Clubs in setting up the 60 plus locations during the weekend of July 12th 2014. For the full story please visit the WRTC2014.ORG web site. It includes information on the competitors and a log of scores etc.

My favorite ham activity is contesting. Years back I operated W1AW at ARRL Headquarters and contacted several amateurs through the Russian RS-12 satellite. The pass duration was approximately 10 minutes over the US East Coast. Had to plan the trip to ARRL HQ to coincide with the satellite pass.  I should also mention operating aero mobile on a few occasions while flying as a radio operator in the Navy. The P2V Neptune Patrol aircraft is shown in the photo above. A one hundred foot trailing wire at 5,000 ft on 40 CW is miraculous. This aircraft is now obsolete and was replaced by the Orion P3. The Navy has just recently taken ownership of the new P8A Boing 737s.

My other hobby is fly fishing. Pulaski NY, Douglaston Salmon Run for steelhead, and fishing the Brewster flats on Cape Cod for stripers are two of my favorite spots.

My old calls; KN1IMH, K1IMH, W2GYX, W1HFM, K1CB

Now W1MA

Call history: KN1IMH ( first licensed at age 15 in 1958), K1IMH (General Class at 15) and then Extra at age 24 _ when the lower 25 Khz was designated Extra only. That meant it was time to upgrade. W2GYX ( transferred to Syracuse NY for 2 plus years - I did very little operating but managed to travel extensively throughout Upstate NY.) W1HFM (back to Massachusetts from Syracuse. - my understanding, Syracuse is one of the cloudiest cities in the continental US - My wife Anne could not stand all the snow - average 120 inches a year; K1CB when vanities were first offered to Extra Class and CB was the rage. When Ed O'Donnell, the original holder of the call W1MA past on, I tried convincing his son-in-law Red, W1SYA to upgrade and apply for the call. At the time he did not want to upgrade/apply for the call. Redmond went for his Extra a number of years later. Red and I worked together for many years. His wife Pat KB1CPG was one of my first contacts with the call W1MA. A very memorable QSO on 2 mtrs. Pat also received the first W1MA QSL card I sent out. I gave up the K1CB call ( now held by Charlie Bresnahan in Falmouth MA ) when I applied for the W1MA call.
