First licensed as WN2NYY when I was a junior in high school in 1970, thanks to my Elmers Henry W2EAT (SK) and Paul WB2GHI (SK). Became WA2NYY in the Fall of 1970. I've never been a New York Yankee fan, the callsign was the FCC's choice. Grew up on Long Island with the Mets and Jets. I'm active on 40m and 30m every night running QRP CW with a KX3 and an 80m OCF dipole up at 35 feet. I have full rig control with N1MM and the K1EL WInkeyer. Casual DXing and some ragchews are to my liking. Look for me pounding my Johnson Speed-X straight key in the monthly NAQCC QRP CW sprints. They're great fun and slow speed. A really good way to hone your CW skills. Oh yeah, I'm one of those 20 wpm Extras too (figured I would throw that in there). In the warmer months I like to operate portable with the KX3 at various locations and on my deck in the backyard with a 40 dipole fed with ladder line on a Jackite pole, Once in awhile I'll operate on 20m PSK31 with my old trusty Kenwood TS440S and 20m dipole. QSY Society is a local club I'm active in and we operate Field Day and lots of other activities during the year. If you live in Dutchess County or the surrounding area stop by at our monthly meeting. Check out our website http://qsysociety.org. If you need the extremely "rare" W2 QSL please send paper or LOTW. I have eQsl but if I look at it twice a year that is a lot.
Hope to meet you on the bands.
DXCC both mixed and CW
