Ham Member Lookups: 13024


I have been licensed since 1964 (Novice), soon upgraded to General (WB2CNG), some years later to Advanced, then soon thereafter, to Extra. In 2004, obtained 'vanity' call W2EG. I was inactive for long periods during the 70's and 80's before re-catching the 'bug'. Been active pretty much steadily from the late 80's.

In 2006, after retiring, I moved from Long Island, NY to a hilltop QTH in Albany County, NY about 15 miles SSE of the city of Albany, and about 6 miles west of the Hudson River. The hilltop is not quite 900' ASL and roughly 750' above the surrounding terrain. I am fortunate to have a nice clear shot downhill from about 0 degrees around to about 90 degrees with no real obstructions anywhere close in other directions.

I am presently using parallel dipoles for 80 through 10M, up about 15 meters. (Took the tower down in contemplation of moving, but that has yet to happen.) For the most part, I operate HF cw, with a bit of PSK and very little bit of SSB.

Present rig is a K3 and sometimes a KPA500, running up to ~500 watts cw. I also use a Navigator (US Interface).

I enjoy cw contesting (more often than not as 40 meter single band, low power), chasing DX, and the occasional ragchew.

I am a member of the Hudson Valley Contesters and DXers group, as well as Albany Amateur Radio Association.
