Age is 65 and been a ham since I was 13 years old, but life has a way of getting in the way of your hobbies so I have been inactive for 45 years and just got back on the air in November, 2010. Running about 180 watts out of an Icom 7700. Antennas are a Hy Gain TH11DX log periodic 11 element yagi on a HDX555 crank-up tower, and a Hy Gain Hy Tower vertical. SKCC # 7645. FISTS #15399.
I'm a retired Electrical Engineer and worked as a Process Control Specialist for 3M and Honeywell. After retirement in 2005, we sold our house in the Twin Cites and moved fulltime to our lake home located in Northern Minnesota.
QTH is located about 180 miles north of Minneapolis. We love Minnesota summers so much we brave the rigors of Northern Minnesota winters where temperatures of -30 degrees F are common and have had -50 degrees F (-45 C) on two occasions since we've been here. Here's what the QTH looks like in the summer.
