DO NOT SEND SASE OR MONEY for QSLs. I WILL MAIL TO YOU ON MY OWN IF I RECEIVE YOURS. TNX
On March 31, 2012 I got my Tech license as KB3YLB and promptly changed my callsign to K2DEP on May 1, 2012 because it is a lesser weight for sending. I learned to copy CW at a Navy school in 1963 and getting my Amateur Radio license was on my bucket list ever since. In 1983 after 21 years, I retired from the Navy and went to work for the government and in 2004 retired as a Technical Director in computer and network security. I learned to send on my own. CW gives me great pleasure but I have made a couple of contacts on SSB, especially DX. I am 99.9% CW.
I am an ARRL member, FISTS club #15741, NAQCC #6205, FP #2942, ARCI #15149 and I am SKCC member #9273S where I tend to spend a lot of time. My rigs are a Kenwood TS-590S, and an Elecraft KX3 (for QRP) and a variety of homebrew tube and transistor transmitters. I use a 102' G5RV @ 30ft. I use my Schurr mahogany hand key, Schurr MMK medium Key or my Czech key because they are very smooth and quiet. Hope to meet more folks on 80/40/15/10/6 meters in the future. Bill Walstrum, KE3O, has helped me immensely in getting started in Amateur Radio.
Looking forward to working you on the bands.
My other hobbies are playing golf a couple times a week and repairing vintage tube radios.I like building QRP rigs and home made low power tube rigs. I also enjoy repair and restoration of vintage clocks, anything from cuckoo clocks to tall case clocks. I was mentored once a week for 2 years in horology.
