First got tech license in 1993 at the age of 16 (KE4BCE), then got tech + license about 1 year later. Grew up in Lee Co. VA and was really only on 2m back in those days. Lee County has some great hams that really helped me learn the basics of amateur radio. In particular, N4TUX and N4UDV. Once I went away to college at Virginia Tech, I didn't really get back into the hobby until about 2009, but I always kept my license. In 2009, I decided I wanted to try HF and upgraded to General (W2KRD) Passed the Extra Sept. 2013 (WB2P). Now I live in NJ and through the ARRL website, I met the guys at the Gloucester Co Amateur Radio Club. These are a fantastic bunch of people and they really got me hooked onto HF. My station is very modest, Yaesu FTdx-1200. Full size G5RV in the back yard and if I go away with the radio I use my Buddipole Deluxe. Since my first HF contact June 2010, I have managed to earn my Triple Play #692 and DXCC #47,938. I am currently working towards my 5B WAS via LoTW. I am a really big fan of contesting. My favorite contests are the ARRL Sweepstakes, ARRL DX, NYQP, and CQ WPX. I also enjoy some of the state QSO parties, especially the NY, PA, and VA parties. I always update my logs to LoTW and you can always send cards direct. Hope to hear you on the air. 73
