Originally licensed in 1976 in Toledo, Ohio, as (Novice) WN8ZHY. I then upgraded and received callsign WB8ZHY (Technician). The family moved to Arizona and then received callsign WB7QGN (eventually a General). After finally taking (and passing) the Extra, I then changed to this vanity call.
I also have a long interest in antique and tube radios. I will use them occasionally for amatuer operation (Hallicrafters SX-100 and others). It is also fun to turn on one of my EH Scott or Zenith console radios and hear a QSO "AM" style.
I operate HF with using a Yaesu FT-847, Rigblaster Advantage, dipole, ladder line feed, and various tuners. I'll also light up the Ameritron AL-811H from time to time. Living in an urban environment really provides a battle against all of the interference, so I struggle to get good contacts from time to time. I also have the distinct pleasure of living with CC&R's, so there is no chance of putting up a major antenna system.
I use LOTW, eqsl.net (just for fun), QRZ.com and send out QSL cards directly or through the buro to get a new QSL in the books. I look forward to getting yours.
