SKCC # 12710C, NAQCC # 7436, 30MDG # 7492, A1 Club # 2958, IBPC* # 1 (Founder), Member of the Royal Order of the Wouff Hong, ARRL Life Member

I returned to amateur radio in 2014 (started on HF at the end of August) after almost 30 years of being off the air (see History below). I used to work CW and, for most of my teenage years, participated in high-speed telegraphy competitions. Currently, I am mostly working QRP and low power CW/Digital (10-30W) using a long-wire antenna. 
I've never used "bugs" and "cooties" before and I don't own any of them now so all my sending is done either with a straight key or a single-lever paddle+keyer. Although, I can do 45 wpm (both send and receive), I am not much of a rag-chewer. Maybe it will grow on me some day. 
I started on digital modes in July 2016. My first ever digital contact (PSK31) was VK2KM (Karl), first JT65 contact - KD5K (Robert), first JT9 contact - AA7IX (Martin), first FT8 contact - N4ABN (Eddy).
I upload my logs into LOTW, eQSL, ClubLog and QRZ.com every week, HRDLOG.net - monthly.
