Ham Member Lookups: 52651

 

2017 is my 57th year in ham radio.  Novice class license in December 1960 (very limited HF privileges), crystal-controlled CW, 35 watts output to an improperly matched 40M folded-dipole with a straight key. Globe Scout (deluxe!) + Lafayette HE-10 were the xmtr and rcvr.  I still remember how great it was to work 20, 15 and 10 after earning my General class license and putting up a new 14AVS vertical. The "good old days?" In some ways, yes.  Lots more rag chew conversations then than now.  But, 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, 190 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. When the bands are open, you'll find me on 160 through 2, mostly CW and digital modes.

Casual contester since 2008, as a member of the Yankee Clipper Contest Club. So, in the contests many weekends. Lately, been doing more longer contacts.  If you hear me, please give me a call. Other memberships include: ARRL (Life Member), Central NH ARC, FOC(2093), CWops (1404), SKCC (3743), FISTS (14474), 10-X International (43035), Indexa and QCWA (19644).

Incidentally, I find it fascinating that us "old timers" like to restore old radios and downsize technology for the fun of it.  What is that all about?  :-)  Actually, me too.  I inherited an almost new Heathkit HR-10 that wants finishing.  There's also a beautiful old Crosley 51 circa 1920's. Inspired by AllAmericanFiveRadio's videos, I'd love to get them running again.

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 always OK.  Quickest, easiest is LOTW. The T-sorter from the 1-area bureau sends cards every few months.  Please be patient if you're sending a bureau card.  Impatient?  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. I have some eQSL data but update that infrequently. (Send me an email if you need an eQSL confirmation.)

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