I became licensed in 1987 after being a short wave and scanner fan for many years. In the very difficult world we are living in, Amateur radio is a very positive activity to bridge cultures and help increase understanding between diverse people around the world. I very much enjoy Chasing DX, as well as being very active on VHF and UHF. Also,I am a member of the ARRL, The Long Island DX Association and the Long Island Mobile Amateur Radio Club (LIMARC). Now I am retired and am able to devote substantial time to amateur radio activities. The internet is very nice, however, to me there is still no greater thrill than to bounce my signal around the ionosphere to the other side of the world using radio waves. I live in a very congested city environment, and with a homebrew multiband dipole antenna up on the roof, about 35 feet up, and basic 100 watt transceiver, I have been able to work many interesting and very exotic places. I have been using a Kenwood TS 830S, TS 440SAT and recently, an Icom 746 for HF. On VHF I am using an Icom V-8000 on 2 meters and an Icom 38A on 220 MHZ. I also use a Kenwood 731A for UHF. For scanning I am using the Yaesu FRG 9600. I am using a Diamond X50 for 144MHZ and 440MHZ. For 220MHZ, I am using a Larson mobile antenna on a groundplane.

I have worked 275 different DXCC countries and have attained DXCC in Phone, CW, RTTY, 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 30 and 40 meters and just recently I completed the requirements for the Triple Play Award. I also am very active on RTTY. For RTTY, I use a PK232. I am using a Windows XP desktop. It works very well with the Procomm Plus program. Also,I enjoy going to hamfests and socializing with fellow amateur radio operators. Working the various contests throughout the year is very exciting and is a good way to work new countries on the different modes. These interesting and challenging contests also helped me get the Worked All States Award as well.

I update my log on LOTW and ClubLog daily.
