About AC0C....

I prefer CW and RTTY modes but now own a microphone and have been adding to the DXCC SSB total.   Interest areas are emergency prep, contesting, amps, antennas/modeling and homebrew of about anything.

Received the mixed mode DXCC in Sept 2009 after being stuck at 99 confirmed for a long time.  At the time of the QTH change (2012), the attic array had provided 188 worked and 170 confirmed.  Since moving to the country, totals have moved slowly up from there.


Improving my CW fist after about 27 years QRT. Thanks to everyone I've worked and had the patience to put up with my many CW sending errors.
