Favorite operating mode CW.  Chasing DX and new prefixes and County Hunting, I  Still play with Contests, but no longer a serious contester!  I do enjoy State QSO Parties and try to make them all.


Other activity:  My 1982 427 Corvette................ and playing  my much modified  vintage  1954 B2 Hammond organ , along with a long host of emulators, sequencers, arpeggiators, arrangers, synthesizers and a Neve 5315 32X2 board.   OK.........I was at one time a very busy studio musician and engineer.  In the photo below is my homebrew Lowreyzilla.  It uses Hammond keyboards and Grohl emulators, a Hammond 150w pre amp driving a Pyle 3KW amp.  Speakers are Leslie 122s and 147s.  Sub woofer is a 18" 200w Peavy.  It WILL rattle the windows!  Also pictured is a Yamaha Tyros III, a Korg Presidio, and a 25 key M-Audio arranger.  Note the 5 floor pedals used for octave changing and activation of voice emulators.
