If you worked us on SSB, we hope it was obvious which of us was on the MIC.

If it was CW it was my OM, N5ECT, on the key.

I became interested in my Husband's hobby in 1985 and within 12 months managed to pass my extra class test.

Although I passed the 20 wpm fair and square, I did not stay with code long enough to become a cw operator.

We didn't realize at the time how useful my license would be.

In 1988 Doug went to sea as radio officer aboard oil tankers. I spent many hours on 20 and 40 keeping in touch with him

and in the process got to know hams around the world.

We have been retired since 1996 and live on a small beef cattle farm in north central Arkansas.

There is plenty of room for low band antennas and as a result much of our operating is done during 160 meter contests.

This is a joint operation and WD5R is used to identify the station.

If you hear Doug signing WD5R, be assured I am nearby and closely supervising his activities.

UPDATE: February 2013

Doug and I pulled 5 sections of Rohn 45 out of the weeds and stacked them on the old stump.

We installed a new Mosley 5 element 15 meter mono at around 55 ft.

After years of 160 meters only, this 15 meter band is a big new world for me.

Going to be a tough decision next few months, garden or radio?

Marlene, WD5R
