Mailing address is town of New Berlin in Chenango County. Actual QTH is located in OTSEGO county. This info for the benefit of county hunters.
Served in the USMC in the early 50s. assigned to the 3rd MAW and SOS-3 MCAS Miami.......MOS 2611 was teletype and radio repairman and worked in a climate much warmer than North Korea. I guess you could say I got real lucky in a duty station.
I have been licensed since 1960 as WA2QQF and operate on CW 99% of the time. CW forever is my motto. I may put some digital modes on my BUCKET LIST if I ever get the urge.
I enjoy using my novice speed-x and working SKCC brass pounders along with a vibroplex. My SKCC # 550. I have a simple station consisting of a Kenwood TS440S running barefoot. Two wire antennas, an inverted Vee 80/40 meter with apex at 45 feet and a Carolina windom which works great. I also have a 45 foot tower with a Cushcraft A3S. I now have 337 mixed confirmed and 9 deleted entities. Worked Navassa for a new one so will soon have 338. Still need BS7 and FT5/W but will have to live a few more years to nail them.
Notice the tribander when the pix is enlarged. From the ground it looks quite large up at 45 feet BUT looking down from 800 feet, it is barely visible.
Hope to see you on the bands and I always like to rag chew and learn about you and your life on planet earth.
Very 73 and thanks for reading.
