Thanks for stopping by.  I received my amateur radio license in 1976 and have been in and out of the hobby howerver I've tried to have a station at my different QTH's over the years.  This is one of several hobbies I enjoy and like all hobbies I keep it as a hobby, it's not my life.  My first passion has always been airplanes.  I received my private pilots license in 1979 and advance my license and ratings over the years.  I enjoyed owning several airplanes and flight instructing while building flight time.  In 1989 I started doing corporate flying and then I flew for an airline from 1995 until December 2005 when I had to surrender my FAA medical due to a medical issue and retired from flying.  After retireing from flying my wife an I owned a HVAC business in Texas until we sold it in 2017.  We now live in Kentucky where I have more time for the radio and other hobbies.  I have put together a modest radio station here in Kentucky.  The station consist of a Yaesu FTDX5000MP, QRO HF-2500DX amplifier, Mosley PRO-67B3 beam, DX Engineering 43 foot vertical with buried radials, full wave 80 meter inverted Delta loop, Inverted L with buried radials for 160 meters and other related equipment for the hobby.  I enjoy pursuing DX on the HF bands 10-160 meters on all modes.  Thanks again for stopping by and hope to catch you on the air.
