QSL image for WD9Q

After long winter refurbishment of the CUSHCRAFT A3 Antenna it is back in the air and performing beyond my expectations. I am happy to be back on the air and meeting such nice folks on the air. I have even made contact with some hams that I had QSO with over 30 years ago! What a wonderful exciting hobby!

I have been in Amateur Radio for over 36 years first being licensed in 1978 as KA9AUF along with my brother Mark KA9AUJ. This was at the time when you first took your Novice License test from an Elmer that gave you the 5 WPM code test and then sent to the FCC for the written test. My elmer was W9WHL, Bill Jenkins, who is now a silent key. My brother Mark has now taken W9WHL as his call sign. I am just getting back into the hobby after being off for several years being occupied with family. I enjoy working DX and operating CW. I am working on refurbishing my 20+ year old 3 band beam and all the rest of my ham gear. I have been on the air with only a 40M dipole I made a few weeks ago and using an antenna tuner to operate the rest of the other bands. I have been having some good luck with it. I am an electrical engineer by trade and I attribute amateur radio with leading me to that career. I look forward to seeing you on the air!
