I originally got my Novice license back in the 70's as WN9GDY, but I never renewed it. Again as KA2CEV in NY. Anyone have those in your log? If so, let me know!! I got the bug again, so I bought the study guides and read them. Then I got my license Easter 2012 weekend by taking all three exams at the Geff, IL Hamfest and passed them all! I was AC9BV then got my vanity call, WM9I the end of May 2012.

I am using an FT817ND barefoot at 5W with aSpi-Ro A-10dipole up about 30 feet and an LDG 100 Plus auto tuner. I use the Bencher BY-1 now for CW (still getting used to paddles) I have just added the SignaLink and use it with HRD and associated DM780 and Logbook s/w for digital and CAT control on a Lenovo XP laptop. I have set up an extended WIFI to reach my shop where the ham shack is located. It is working great. It is made by Ubiquiti. I use the o'scope to monitor my signal.


I also work poolside via MFJ-1899T. I am working on setting a battery-powered portable set up with solar panels.

So far, I have been able to work Europe, Asia, Africa, North, Central & South America,and the Caribbean.

My grandson, Caleb, also enjoys talking on the radio and joins me in the shack regularly. You may hear him on the air (Kids Day), also! He is 5 and a budding ham! Next, teach him the code!!

I have now added a second shack location with a Yaesu FT-990 and the SignaLink and computer set up. I also use my straight key here. I put up a wire vertical to run off of, also. I works well and is easier for Caleb to access.























In my first year I was able to get contacts to qualify for the DXCC, WAS, and WAC awards from these stations.  I am also applying for the WPX certificate.

73, God bless,es gud DX! CU on the bands!

Joe, WM9I
