I am a practicing dentist. In 1987, a patient who is a Ham introduced me to the world of amateur radio and prompted me to study for a license. Young kids, my practice, and the daunting task of mastering rudimentary Morse code put the kabosh on the idea. In April 2013, I decided that enough was enough, and I took and passed the tech exam. Not needing code was certainly a factor. UHF/VHF radio is fun and gives the opportunity to participate in community service, but the lure of HF prodded me to upgrade to General 4 weeks later. I cracked the books again in December 2013 and passed my Extra exam March 2014.

The back portion of my property has spawned an antenna farm consisting of a 20ft vertical, a 131ft OCF dipole, and a 55ft crankup/lay over tower on which is mounted a Hex beam.

The hobby has opened to world to my shack in which resides a Yaesu FTDX3000, Kenwood 590s, MFJ auto tuner, and a ALS-600 amp. A Yeasu 8800 sits at the ready for repeater activity.

In my truck, I have a a Yeasu 7900 and a Yeasu 857d. HF mobile is proving to be a blast. Being a member of a net on 20m cuts out the boredom of a 100 mile round trip to my office.

I am active on the YLSystem on 20M--14.332 where I am a co-control during the 2nd and 3rd periods of the Moonbeam ( 6:00-8:00 pm EDT) as well as the Moonbeam Coordinator. I also act as control for the 2nd and 3rd Periods of the Sunrise Portion on Sundays (9:00-11:00 am EDT.) We are always looking for new members to take an active role as a control.  I also wear the hat of editor for the System's yearly publication The Voice. The YLSystem is a terrific place to make new friends and work all states. You do not have to be a member to check-in. Give the System a try and you will be coming back and want to join.

73s,

Larry
