I got my Technician ticket in April 2016. Watching my husband, NO2C chasing NPOTA parks and not being able to because of my license restrictions, I achieved my General on September 24th. From then until December 31, 2016 I chased and confirmed 350 parks!  I also activated 3 parks. I enjoy contesting and DXing. That drove me to get my Extra because there was a lot going on in the Extra portion of the bands that I wasn't allowed to use.  My husband complains that I am always hogging the radio. Too Bad!

The equipment I use is an Icom 7300, Alpha 91B amplifier (which I love for DXing), 43 foot ZeroFive Verticle and a 135 foot OCF dipole up 35 feet in my neighbor's yard. Nice neighbor! My husband bought a IC-7100 for my birthday, which we use for WWFF Park activations. I changed my original call sign from KD2KSA to K2RYD (ride).

The horse in the pictures is my faithful mount Spartacus. I adopted him from a local riding school when he was 19yrs old. We just celebrated his 32nd birthday. We belong to a mounted Drill Team and perform at shows, community events and parades.

One week Post Fracture 9-23-17. Fractured Fibula while jumping off deck to feed Spartacus. Sooo Stupid. Have to keep leg elevated, so I chase parks via HT to microphone in the ham shack from the couch with the help of my husband NO2C. Here I am working the Texas and Maine QSO parties!
