Hello,
Latest News:
80% CW, but please QRS 14-16 WPM... (my cw copy at higher speeds is far from perfect). I enjoy to chat (less the standard exchange... but I start off that way).  I use QRP from 1 to 5 watts when conditions allow. I will QRO 100 watts when QSB... remember that CW is about ENJOYMENT. I answer any station that calls QRS CW and I match my speed to theirs... some are beginners and some are "forever QRS" (like me ?).
Word of advice (from a friend): One CW contact a day (like a vitaman pill) keeps the doctor away. 
 
Enjoy the "Elmer" aspect, helping new Amatuer Radio Operators gain operational experience.
Satellite Communication: First contact dated September 02, 2015 (SO-50). Excellant mode for those who can multitask (not me).
 
HF Ant:
My favorite piece of equipment: Antenna Analyzer ! (Warning: Don't leave home without one.)
Delta Loops : 15M & 20M (my favorites)
Dipoles 
10/20/40 End Fed for QRP
MP-1 Vertical (field days, even on my apartment balcony)
Alex Magnetic loop>> My first contact with this antenna was ~1800 Km with 1 watt (QRPp) USB
I enjoy constructing simple wire antennas for field days
Homemade Magnetic loop antenna-- looking to lightenen it for field days/portable operation
Arrow antenna VHF/UHF for Satellites. In process of homebrewing satellite antennas.
 
Rigs: HF:
Elecraft K3s, built from the kit, (plus the Panadapter P3)... I'm very very happy with this rig! 
Field Day rigs: Yaesu FT-817 (my favorite), FT-857
VHF/UHF: FT-8800 
History: Kenwood TS-440 (my first rig).
March 25, 2012 finished my first CW transceiver kit:
Small Wonders Lab SW+20, I set the power output to 1 watt !!!
So if you might have to work a little harder to hear me... but it is thrilling to work QRPp... believe me.
In Process of building QRP-Labs Kit WSPR transceiver.
 
Using a LiPo 4.5 AmpHour battery for filed days. When I get a new smart charger I will continue to solar charge my batteries. (Think GREEN)
Please, CQ AC2FT, when in the US of A, that's me too.
 
QSL Cards:
I am sort of old fashion, I collect the paper QSL cards... so this is what I prefer. I answer all handwritten QSL cards (not so much the computer generated ones). I use the Buro... I have patience... however, if you send Direct then I will gladly reply Direct as soon as possible (ASAP) with my paper QSL card. No problem... I live very close to a post office! It is my pleasure... besides I'll probably get a Cappuccino on the way!
 
Don't read this unless you send eQSL:
I go online about twice a year answer all received eQSL.
