Andy Koslap here, greetings from the Christmas City, Bethlehem Pennsylvania.  I have been a ham since 1966 but only became active this past February as the “Bug” bit me again. The suburban area I live in does not lend to large arrays of bright shining aluminum jutting 65 feet or more in to the eastern PA sky.  So I try to keep it simple, elegant, and efficient.   I am a Network Administrator for a family run, small business computer support company. Computers have been my life for the last 20 years. Test taking comes somewhat easy for me so I wasted no time with my Extra license and I took about 10 months to get thru the three tests. I will need to re-learn Morse code though it seems to have taken leave and is not coming back easy.


                After some disappointing EBay wars I purchase a Yaesu FT-757GX that had been well maintained by its previous owner.  This radio has been amazing and I have gained a great respect for the older solid state technology. I still have my first radio just back from Burghardts in SD, an ICOM IC- 706MK2G which performed admirably until I attempted connecting it to my computer so I could use HRD.  Now it only works like new and is dedicated for PSK31 and VHF SSB and 6 meters.  The 757 puts out 125 watts and I have talked to 83 countries and have now added an ElectroVoice 606 mike and Behringer 802 mixer improve my audio.  My “array” is a 23 foot mast with a CushCraft AR-10 and one end of a Barker & Williamson BWD-90 Folded Dipole that runs uphill from 22 ft to 30ft in a tree at the back of my lot. This simple set of antennae has worked well for me, for now.

                A member of the Lehigh Valley Amateur Radio Club since I got my Tech ticket I am active on the VHF and UHF bands using DStar, and Echolink. I use an ICOM IC-2820H for the 2m and 70cm bands and D-Star in the house and a second ICOM IC 2820H for the mobile.

                    73s and thanks for the visit.
