Hello,

My friends know me as Paul. My interest in amateur radio began some 40 years ago and I finally took my technician and general exam in mid January, 2014. I guess you can call me an old newbie. My job took me out of the RF world and put me in the digital/analog world and that's where I remained until I retired in March, 2013.

About 35 years ago, I built a Heathkit QRP rig and a Conar 452 2 meter radio kit. The 2 meter radio needed a tone generator because it didn't have tone capability. I constructed a Slim-Jim antenna from 1/2" copper tubing and stuck it in the attic.  It works great.  The QRP rig will wait until I get proficient in code.

I purchased an Icom IT-718, built an antenna tuner and strung a long wire with a 9:1 balun in the attic.  That will suffice for a while.  I'd like to build a trap vertical, but it may take a while because I need to share my time with my XYL, grand kids, target shooting, and reloading.

I belong to the Tryon Amateur Radio Club. They have a 2 meter repeater, K2JJI, on 146.700 MHz (100 Hz tone) and are on EchoLink (510372) . They also have a website - K2JJI.org.

(Jan. 21, 2015:  Took and passed the Amateur Extra exam)
