The best number is 73…. 73 is the twenty-first prime number Its mirror, 37, is the twelfth and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying 7 and 3…. In binary, 73 is a palindrome: 1-0-0-1-0-0-1, which backwards is 1-0-0-1-0-0-1    Sheldon Cooper
73 in International Morse Code, (7) --... which backwards is (3) ...-- (Thank's Andrew)

One birthday, somewhere around 1968, my father gave me  a Lafayette Explor-Air Mark V Receiver.

I remember listening to Johannesburg, South Africa late into the evening almost every night.

Many years later I received my first call (1995) as a tech after a buddy talked me into studying for the exam.

I quickly became bored with the uhf/vhf local stuff and let my license expire.

After being introduced to HF radio at a local "Field Day" I was hooked on DX, being able to talk to people

around the world with the same hobby.

Picked up a used Kenwood TS-440/S and installed a bhi dsp module and a hoa friendly Hy-Gain trapped vertical antenna

and have done fairly well receiving the WAC, Grid Squared, WAS, County Hunter awards.

Another passion of mine is photography - Ships, Planes, Trains, & Automobiles :)

Started playing with JT65 this Sept 2016, made contacts in USA, Japan, Australia on the first evening I tried it. Still need to work out some details and get an audio interface such as Signalink or Rigblaster (any donations?) instead of the microphone up against the speaker and VOX controlling PTT.
