Ham Member Lookups: 34378


I am active on all bands and if you hear me on the air, be sure and call! I would love to meet with you. I was hooked on amateur radio when I was 12 years old and the thrill hasn't stopped plus the euphoric feelings remain. At least I can say that I operated 11 meters when it was a HAM band and the fun of operating and meeting others on the air is STILL there. I got my Novice at 13 and my General license three months later. I was hooked!

Another love of radio is QRP and if you hear me on, please call! The low power I use (IC-703=5 watts, PFR-3A = 4 watts, NorCal 40A = 2 watts, KX2 =5 watts) doesn't allow me to have many QSOs per hour but I would like to meet you. CW is where The Excitement Is Building. I like working CW and belong to FISTS (#6666, CC#2222) which just keeps CW alive and well on the bands. "If it isn't CW, it's just CB." You don't hear trash on CW like you do on the phone portions and CW operators are REAL operators. Also, the Straight Key Club is a bull dog for keeping CW alive! Check me out . . . SKCC #2662T. Did I mention NAQCC #2112? Good CW clubs!

My second love in amateur radio is QSLing and I wish I could send (and receive) a QSL from EVERY QSO I make. I hope that you're reading this and will send me your QSL for I will always send you mine. A QSL is a compliment to a great QSO. Some of my best QSLs were home made from novice contacts I made in the early 60s. My latest QSL card was designed by a former student in my English class who doodled and I took it from there. The guy on the QSL is NOT me but from the imagination of my former student. The cartoon is too mean and grumpy looking! And I would like to say at least I can SMILE! Homebrew QSLs are the best!

I moved to 2 acres in Brookline, NH and now have the antennas I have always wanted. Two horizontal dipoles at 60 feet (80 and 40 meters) are gingerly placed onto my pine trees for maximum radition. My sixty foot tower is perfectly placed on the side of my house and I have my Mosley TA-36 riding high on top. In the morning, when the sun first shines, the glimmer of the aluminium makes me smile to see my antenna up there ready for action. Does it get any better?

I am now a retired college professor. I taught technical writing to those students who couldn't read or write, but wished to tell the rest of the world how it was done. Returning to the shack after a day with the kids was all I needed for sanity, plus CW is music to my ears. It's my "man cave" in all its glory. When you hear me calling from NH--come back! My QSL is waiting for you. Won't you call?
