I became interested in ham radio when I was about 10 yrs old. My grandfather was an active ham since the early 50's. I got my novice ticket in 1975 at the age of 14. I was very active for a few years until my interest in girls became more important. I had a few inactive years then got back in in my 20s. Since then I have remained licensed and active to this day.  I passed my Extra exam about 20 yrs ago. I have been primarly a CW OP over the years. I'm 56 yrs old. I have 4 children ranging from 23-35 yrs of age. I'm married to a wonderful woman, but I haven't been able to get her interested in radio....yet. I work in sales in the Fire and Security industry. I am currently President of the Southern Pennsylvania Amateur Radio Club. I like to chase DX and am always trying to increase my country count,

My station presently consists of a Kenwood TS-450, LDG AT-100PRO Tuner,  I've got an inverted Doublet at about 80' that works on all bands. I have seperate dipoles for 17 and 40.  I work about 40% CW, 20% PHONE and 40% DIGI modes.  Barefoot to a wire. Stringing new wires is one of my favorite parts of the hobby. I've got my first tower in process. I hope to have it complete in the Spring. I'll top it with a rotatable Dipole for 20m, a 6M Moxon and a 2M Yagi.

I recently built a couple QRP rigs. Building and tinkering is my other favorite part of the hobby. My interests change in phases. There are still quite a few parts of the hobby I have yet to explore.
