Currently doing work in the financial/trading area, dealing with all kinds of fun topics. Extracurricular activities include flying my DJI Phantom 3 quadcopter (photos and videos on my website).
I was first licensed in 1994 as N9YXA. In 1995 my parents purchased my first HF radio, a Kenwood TS-180 which helped me work nearly 98 countries and 46 states. Unfortunately, in 1997 during my trip to Zimbabwe (as Z2/N9YXA)it was smashed by a famous European airline on the journey from Heathrow to Harare. Later that year, I bought a Kenwood TS-930 from my mentor, N9JLP. In 1998, I got my Extra class license (with the 20WPM test).
I primarily participate in contests and have a few pieces of wallpaper and a plaque somewhere in a box. I was QRT from 2001-2005 and again from 2008-2010 primarily due to work, but was able to get back on the air on the East Coast (NY/NJ) at a couple contest stations and man the night CW shift at a couple Field Day events. My favorite mode of operation is CW.
You'll most likely find me on CW. I purchased a KX3 in mid 2014 and a KXPA100 external amp in February 2015. Currently have a couple wire antennas at my location, a permanent 40/20 dipole, a "field day special" 80/20/15 inv vee along with a 160 sloper. The latter 2 antennas are only mounted during contest weekends or when I am camping or at Field Day.
