I was First licensed as a Novice in December 1957 as KN2OES in Penn Yan, NY. After holding the Technician, General, and Advanced Class licenses, I finally cracked the 20 wpm barrier and upgraded to Extra in 1970. I have been active in all modes from CW to AMTOR, PSK31, DStar, DMR and I was a Navy MARS station, NNN0ZFL, during the Persian Gulf Crisis.

We have built a new home in Webster, NY. There are HOA considerations, so the G5RV disappeared.

My answer, as more hams are finding is Digital Radio - both DMR and DStar and now FT8.

My DMR station is a TYT MD-390 radio and a 70 cm hotspot consisting of a Raspberry Pi Zero W and a ZUMSpot Pi board, running Pi-Star software.

My DStar station is an ICOM ID-51A PLUS and a two meter hotspot consisting of a Raspberry Pi 3B and a dual-band DVMega board running Pi-Star software also.

My FT8 setup is a MacBook Pro, SignaLink USB and Yaesu FT-450 (CAT control is nice).

I am retired and currently live in Webster, NY. I can sometimes be found on 20 Meters - SSB/CW and occasionally PSK31, with a 20 meter dipole in my attic.  I am currently experimenting with anything I can configure as an inside antenna.

I operate 2 meters FM and 440 FM with a Kenwood TM-V71A.  

My HF radio is a Yaesu FT-450.  Works fine on CW, SSB, FM and ft8.

I have an interest in antique radio equipment, and I have owned most of the good stuff from the 50's: NC-300, Collins 75A1 and 75A4, SX-101 Mk III, Collins 32S1 and 75S1, etc. My favorites include a very special National SW-3 receiver, and the Collins 75A1 receiver was a gem.

I hope to QSO you soon.
