Been licensed for a while, back when the Fed administered the tests! Finally achieved Number 1 DXCC through many a sleepless nights waiting and fighting to work the ellusive ones. Haven't checked into my DXCC 5 Band status yet, piles and piles of cards not to mention paper logs to go thru. One of these days.
Love CW and do some SSB. I find CW more enjoyable, easier to get the data and information thru rough band conditions, and less nonsense. Also, CW provides much greater efficiency, less bandwidth required, and faster to rack up a Q count in a contest.
Station is modest. Basic transceiver, 3 element yagi and wires for the low bands. Nothing noteworthy or worth bragging about.
I love our 4 legged babies (children) in our family: Heidi, Sweetie, Cookie, Rosie, Button, Honey and Buddy (pic attached). Buddy is a rescue Rat Terrier, as is Rosie and Button, and Honey isa rescue Rat-Cha. Heidi is the big girl, part Rhodesian Ridgeback and something else that is large, Cookie is part Blue Heeler and Sweetie is our "old" girl, part lab and part Korgi (unfortunately as of 3 June 2014, we had to put her down as she had been ailing for some time - we are going to really miss her - RIP in heaven Sweetie) . Sweetie was a rescue as her mother and all but one sibling had been run over on a road.� We took Sweetie into our home and have had her since 1999.� All of our extended family are either rescue animals, strays or rescued from the animal shelters.� I do believe God has made these creations for our affection both to give and receive, unfortunately, the time with us is much too short (IMHO).
Buddy (in the pic) �is my best and dearest "friend", �if that captures the affection between he and I.� He loves to go with me, to��many places, in the truck, car or on the riding mower. He likes to stand up with his front feet on the steering wheel.� He doesn't know he isn't a big "boy" so he isn't itimidated easily (LOL).
I expect others to treat me fairly and truthfully, as I do likewise. My word means something to me, and it should to others as well. I don't much care for people that spew nonsense about others in the forums. I appreciate the frustration but I would prefer folks just post the facts and let others decide.
I always practice ethical and honest behavior(s) so if you see me list something for sale, you know it will be as stated, or I will make it right! I expect the same of others, I expect when something is amiss, you man up and make it right, you don't ask me what do to. You know what to do. Let your conscience be your guide (and hopefully, you have one). CU On the Bands!
