"Icom & dipole and me. Go ahead make my day"

 

                                          

 

If you have made a contact with me and have trouble understanding me - I apologize - the left side if my face is paralyzed from a brain tumor which was removed at Duke University Medical Center in 1999 which makes some things hard to clearly pronounce. (Well that and my hillbilly/redneck accent) I love everything about amateur radio but I don't get on the air much because of this.

My QTH is in a rural area in southern West Virginia named Hewett which is roughly 30 miles south of Charleston West Virginia and roughly 160 miles southeast of Cincinnati Ohio.. Have only had an amateur license since October of 2015 and after six months upgraded to an Amateur Extra license. Only because it is something I have personally wanted all my life. To hold the highest level of "ham" license. When I was 18 years old I did leave this area for about 16 years. I lived in and around Raleigh, North Carolina working construction until the brain tumor permanently disabled me. Thankfully the tumor was benign and has been surgically removed (thank you Duke University Medical Center) but it left behind a lot of nerve damage. So I moved back to this area in 1999 and set up "shack". 

My station is currently an Icom IC-718 with a homebrew fan dipole for 20 meter, 40 meter and 80 meter and an Icom 2300H with a Diamond x-50 for 2 meter. Its a very modest setup but its a start.

 

 

Now a little comedy. Below are pictures of my antenna farm.

 

 

 

Be thankful and God's Blessings to you.
