I was first licensed in 1959 with a DX-60 and a "Heavily Modified" S-38D, in a row house near Philadelphia Pa.
From there I bought my first house in Pennsylvania and installed a TA-33 on a 60 foot tower.
From there I moved to the San Fran Bay area (That's why the 6 call now) had Hustler vertical and a Hygain Th3 tribander
Another move brought me to an HOA in Minden NV and all the misery that goes with an HOA
But wait -- there's more ..
We just moved to a home with no HOA ! Yea ! Free at last - Free at last !! One acre of desert at 4800 feet.
Enjoy Rag Chews, DX and Contest.
I use SSB, CW, RTTY, FM and PSK-31 modes.
I grew up with AM and I'm sorry but I don't miss it and it's huge bandwidth !
I am good in eQSL and LoTW
Run 2 meters to 160 meters at the fixed location and 440 to 80 meters mobile.
Interested in home brew antennas and modifying commercial antennas. I also like to play with wire antennas on 80 and 160.
Run mobile whenever the wife isn't in the car with me !! (Get a kick out of working DX Mobile !)
Avid pistol shooter and find that even being half blind, partially deaf, and semi crippled I can still put holes in the X ring !
I also enjoy General Aviation and have been a pilot since the age of 16 (Good Lord getting me past my flight physicals !), also have my Instrument Repairman, Airframe and Powerplant Technician Licenses.
