Ham Member Lookups: 57097


2017 is my 57th year in ham radio.  Novice class license in December 1960.  Novices had very limited HF privileges, 3 bands, with crystal-controlled CW. I ran 35 watts output to an improperly matched 40M folded-dipole. Globe Scout (deluxe!) and Lafayette HE-10 were the xmtr and rcvr.  After earning my General class license, I still remember how great it was to work 20, 15 and 10 with my new 14AVS vertical. The "good old days?" In some ways, yes.  Lots more rag chew conversations then than now.  And, digital modes (RTTY really) were for the few who could wrangle the teleprinter.

Started with USA "2" area call signs in the 1960s. "1" area calls since 1974: VT and NH. My first love has been DXing: 350 mixed (338 CW, 328 SSB, 195 Digital). Someday, P5 will be on the air - long enough - for my last one. Awards include DXCC Honor Roll, 8 band DXCC and 5 band WAS. You'll find me on 160 through 2.

I operate CW almost exclusively.  I'm a member of FOC (2093) and CWops (1404).  Other memberships include: ARRL (Life Member), Central NH ARC, SKCC (3743C), FISTS (14474), 10-X International (43035), Indexa and QCWA (19644).  I get on SSB, FM and digital modes occasionally.  I've been playing with FT8 of late.  Amazing what can be done with 500 milliwatts.  I want to put my FT-817 on FT8 and let the computer make contacts with 2.5 watts.  But, IMHO, those aren't "real" QSOs.  In addition, I've been a casual contester since 2008 and a member of the Yankee Clipper Contest Club. So, in the contests many weekends. Wherever and whenever you hear me, please give me a call.

Incidentally, I find it fascinating that us "old timers" like to restore old radios and downsize technology for the fun of it.  A non-ham colleague gave me his unfinished 1972 Heathkit HR-10B - that's now working - thanks to two friends.  The old novice RX is cool.  Amazing how well it works.  But, man, we never had it so good as now!  Gives me a new appreciation for my modern rigs.  I also have an old Crosley 51. Maybe, once restored,  it will receive nothing but KDKA and big band music.  :-)

2017: Still looking for that 160M antenna. Also want something I can "resonate" on 60 meters.  Perhaps a Carolina windom?  Moreover, definitely need to find and eliminate annoying local noise sources. There's intermittent S9 QRN on 160 and 80.  And, looking forward to openings on 6M.

Not being the "retiring type," I'm still working.  I'm a Professor at the Plymouth State University (www.plymouth.edu) in the Computer Science & Technology Department.  Helping students to learn, grow and discover who they're meant to be is a marvelous occupation.  My courses include Senior Project, Systems Analysis, Computer Architecture and, of course, Data Communications. Go to the URL and check out the web cam and the Uni. It’s a great place to work. I’ve been there for over 27 years.

I enjoy listening to music. Eclectic by nature, I enjoy jazz, bluegrass and good worship and praise music.  YouTube is amazing.  Think of a tune and it's probably there, in a multiplicity of forms.  WGMC and WBGO are two great jazz stations.  You'll find them on the Internet as well.

A QSL is almost always OK.  Quickest, easiest is LOTW.  Next best is direct.  North America: QSL + SASE please. DX QSLs sent direct, without an SAE + $1 (for the moment, $1 is close enough), will be returned via bureau.  Bureau cards are OK, but...  Please be very patient if you're sending a bureau card.  With the higher postage rates, bureau cards aren't the wonder they used to be.  I will try to keep eQSLs up to date.  I am most interested in new counties for USA-CA. (Send me an email if you need an eQSL confirmation.)

Thanks for visiting. May God grant you peace, joy and lots of DX.

73 de Peter, AE1T
