I picked up an old interest when I got my license in 2006. My main focus is on CW, QRP, DX SSB, AM, antenna design, and old tube rigs. I got an Elecraft KX3 as soon as they were introduced and assembled it from a kit; I added the KXPA100, also as a kit. Among the other stations I like to use are a Kenwood 599D pair, Kenwood TS-830S transceiver, SDG SG-2020, a Drake T-4XC & R-4B pair [for CW], and a TR-4 [for AM]. I am learning to work on tube radios, and have assembled several vintage stations, including a Collins KWM-2A with a 30L-1 linear amp, and a Viking Ranger, DX-100, or DX-60B with a Collins R-388, Collins 51J-4, National HRO 60-T, HRO 50-T, Hammarlund HQ-110, or WWII BC-342-N. The many qrp sets I have constructed in the last few years are getting neglected since the KX3 arrived.

I am also a Boy Scout leader, and a backpacking, canoeing, fly fishing, soccer ["football," Fussball, futbol, etc.], and shooting sports enthusiast. I am a native of Virginia and attended the University of Virginia, where I took a degree in Anthropology and History and played varsity soccer, and Washington & Lee University School of Law. I have lived in Lynchburg, Virginia, since 1982. My law practice focuses on major civil litigation, mostly representing professionals and businesses.

My "numbers" are: SKCC, 2428C; QRPARCI, 12845; NAQCC, 2130; FISTS, 12318; ARS, 2119; FLYING PIGS, 2748;  SOC, 795. I am also active with SOTA. My home antenna is presently an 80m doublet up about 55 feet [16m]. My portable antennas vary with the setting, but include homebrew "Buddistick" using a Wolf River Mini Silver Bullet coil, PAR End Fedz 20-40-10m, VE7CA tri-band wire yagi [all excellent designs I strongly recommend], or whatever concoction has struck my fancy.

The photo above demonstrates my usual high level of technical competency: on the James River near my childhood home outside Bremo Bluff, Virginia. Only official ham achievement: QRPARCI 1000 miles/watt award #2183 [milliwatt].
