I got my start in ham radio in 1973 as WN2ZHL when I got my Novice ticket. The following year I got my General ticket at the Rochester Hamfest. A year after that I drove to the FCC District Office in Buffalo to get my Advanced ticket. I just upgraded to the Extra class on Jan 26/17.

In the early 80's I sold some of my gear and was out of ham radio until March of 2003 when I purchased a used Kenwood TS-520 from eBay. I ran the 520 to a Dentron Super Tuner, to a G5RV dipole up about 35 feet. I used a Kenwood TS-830s for a few years, but most recently I've recently added  a Kenwood TS-850SAT and a Heathkit SB-1000 which is connected to a homemade hex beam.

 DX CODE OF CONDUCT

  • I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
  • I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
  • I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
  • I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
  • I will always send my full call sign.
  • I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
  • I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
  • When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
  • I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
  • I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.

Just got my new station sign from ProjectGM.
