Ham since August, 2011, thanks to a visit to the Queen Mary, (W6RO) with my XYL, where the ham club members sparked my interest in becomming a ham. I then became a ham with the encouragement of my XYL. I am building my ham shack with used and new equipment and learning from many hams in the Milwukee area. I still have a lot to learn!. My XYL says that I am having more fun than a man should have. In February, 2014, my XYL and I revisited the Queen Mary and I was able to operate from the W6RO station for five days. This was a thrill to return to where my recent ham interest began.
My latest interest is satellite contacts, which has turned into an obsession for me. Sometimes I work the birds handheld, working with an Arrow antenna and Yaesu VX-7R, but usually from my van, with a Myers Quadrifilar Helix antenna and my Yaesu FT-847. So far, I have worked SO-50 and FO-29 Satellites. Thank you for the QSO and God Bless.
While my QTH is on the border of EN52, I am close to EN62, EN53 and EN63 and will be roaming for satellite operation from all of those grid squares, and I also work the birds when we travel.
