Licensed as a Novice, in May 1981.  I upgraded to a General license, in March, 1982.  Then upgraded to the Advanced license (current) in September 1982.

My first radio was a Heathkit HW-100.  I purchased the radio from my friend, W0MCT (who built the radio back in 1969).  I used this radio for many years.  Along with the HW-100, I started off using a multi-band dipole antenna.  But within a year, I upgraded to a 3 Element tri-bander, the Hygain TH3JR.

In Oct 1990, I took a hiatus from Amateur Radio.  Moved around a bit, and never got around to setting up the radios again.  But, after 24 years, I am back!  Started getting back on the air, in Oct 2014 (almost 24yrs to the day!).

The picture above is from my mountain property (Castle Mountain), where I hope to operate on the weekends, this summer.  And someday, I hope to make this my everyday view!

Currently, I am using a Kenwood TS-450SAT, and a multi-band fan dipole.  I am hoping to expand my antenna soon, to add a few more bands.  I still have the yagi, but it is in pieces, in the shed.  I hope to be able to use it again, someday!  Due to space limitations, I will be using the dipole for a while.
