Hi All,

I’ve had my license since 96’. But like many folks, I dabbled with the hobby and I really got serious when I retired from the computer biz.  I hang around on 20 & 40 meters (mostly SSB) and I hope to talk to you soon. 

I prefer using eQSL for card exchange and I do keep LOTW and QRZ.com updated.

My Gear:

At my QTH I use:

  • Yaesu FTdx 3000
  • MFJ 998 tuner
  • Amertron ALS-1306
  • Heil Pro-7 headset
  • Icom-51A D-star handheld
  • My first radio a Kenwood TM-733A VHF/UHF (bought in 96 and still works great)
  • Couple cheapie handhelds for TNC and APRS stuff.  

QTH Antennas:

  • KIO Hexbeam
  • G5RV inverted ‘V’ (at 37 ft)
  • AR-270B 2/3 VHF/UHF

Power comes from a set of solar panels and batteries, except the amplifier of course. But I can always crank up the generator for the amplifier if needed.  yes

For Portable RV/Camping trips I use:

  • Icom 706 MKIIG
  • MFJ 939 tuner
  • Super Antenna MP-1

 I am also playing around with a BitX 40 and I just finished up a BitX-20 kit. I plan on using them on my next trip.

For Fun:

I love to DX and making contacts. I also like to work stations on the OMISS net (#11173). I really enjoy the technical aspects of the hobby. I come from a computer /electronic background and I like the “techie” stuff. Now that I have the time, I really like playing around with Arduino’s and Pi’s. Writing code, designing and building circuits or re-configuring things just see if they will work.  I just got started with 3D-printing and I am finding all kind uses for that.
