I was first licensed in 1959 with a DX-60 and a "Heavily Modified" S-38D, in a row house near Philadelphia Pa.

I now live in a small developement 5 miles North of Minden and 5 miles South of Carson City, high desert (4800 feet) in the Carson Valley.
Yes Sports Fans - An H.O.A. ! I use wire in Trees ! Pine, Spruce and Fir work great. Yes I could almost double my counts with "Real" antennas but you can still do a lot with a little.

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.
