Hello, I live in Bellmore a suburb of New York City. Bellmore is about 25 miles east of the Empire State Building. We are on the south shore of Long Island (IOTA NA-026), New York.

I am very happy with my reliable and most versatile Kenwood TS-2000. I have a few other radios that have been added to the shelves for various use:
  • Icom IC-7100. I wanted to try Dstar. The features and filters on this radio are super fine. A++
  • Couple of Yaesu FT-817 radios. Love these little guys and highly recommend them.
  • Elecraft KX3 what can I say, The best of the small portable radios.
  • Yaesu FT-857D The best bang for the buck in ham radio for Base, mobile or portable operations.

In recent years I have taken an interest in outdoor QRP. I enjoy working 5 watts from the local parks and ocean beaches. I started a Facebook group a while back "Ham Radio Outdoors" Check it out.

I like building my own antennas for the field as well. End-fed long wires w/ UnUn, Magnetic Loops, even coil verticals. Lots of variations that can sit on the table or hang in a tree if needed. I travel often and like taking the radio of choice to the Hotel, Guestroom or Stateroom for late night "R and R" before turning in.

Loving it all, Phone, Digital, Dstar.

That is my grandson Trey on my knee at my radio desk. Trey lives in San Antonio Tx. So don't be surprised if I put a \5 on the call if you hear me calling CQ from there from time to time.

Live long and prosper. 73 de K2GK
