Hello!! And thanks for looking me up.
My name is Jay and I am 42 years old and have been a Ham for 27 years.
I passed my novice license back in 1989 when the code was still required. My original call sign was kb2iex. I used to operate alot of 10 meter ssb when the band was hopping. Then I took a break from radio for a while due to the 10 meter band falling out. Back in 2012 I had to start from scratch due to license expiring. Passed my tech and a few months later went for the general and passed. I hope to upgrade to extra in the near future.
I really enjoy operating on the 160 meter band. I also like to chase some DX once in a while and am always trying different antenna designs on my very small village lot and have had pretty good success. Messing with antennas is my favorite aspect of the hobby as well as meeting new friends all around the globe.
I am a master automotive tech and have been working on cars since age 16. I enjoy fishing and camping and just about anything out doors when the weather permits.
I am a single dad and have a 9 year old daughter Emma Gail which is my pride and joy. She is microphone shy but hope to change that in the future.
Well there is my story and hope to catch everyone on the airwaves.73 to all and God bless.
More info and pics coming soon.
