Just be grateful you didn't get me talking as I really don't know when to shut up once I really do get going. hi hi.

This is my original novice callsign from about 1978.

I upgraded to Technician during the September 1979 Melbourne Hamfest with Hurricane David about 30 miles of the coast of Melbourne. The interesting part is that I rode to that hamfest about 86 miles one-way on my Suzuki GS550L motorcycle with full knowledge that the hurricane was there! I figured I would go until I hit rain and be forced to turn back. Luckily for me that it was only fast moving light rain which did not prevent me from completing my journey. 

I never really got into HF voice "regularly" until I picked up my Icom IC-9100 a couple of years ago. Which has since been replaced with an Icom IC-7300.

HF antenna is a G5RV installed as an "inclined" inverted Vee. With the apex is about 25 feet AGL and the ends are about 6 feet AGL.

Recently added an Ameritron AL-811H amplifier which I do not use very often.

I upgraded to Advanced in the early 90's about the time that I got into computers, AMTOR and packet.

I passed the Extra class written test 2 times but could never pass the 20 WPM code test.

When they eliminated the code requirement, I finally upgraded to Extra at the Orlando Hamcation a few years back.

Been practicing my code ever since, but I am not sure it will ever become a usable second language for me. hi hi.
