I got my Technician License in 1993.  Then living in an HOA area of Orange County California, there was no hope of putting up a decent antenna and I had no progress in learning code. Added to that, I did not know any other HAMs or potential Elmers so the Kenwood TH-78A made its way to the back of back of the closet and I was an inactive Ham.  Then in 2013 I retired and moved to the Coachella Valley, near Palm Springs California.  I met Glenn, WB6RLC who became an Elmer and got me back interested in HAM Radio.  In early 2015 I became a member of the Desert Radio Amateur Transmitting Society or Desert RATS.  I attended their General Class Training and along with 13 of 13 attendees, I passed my General Exam.  After a bit of delay pulling cash together I bought my first HF rig.  I am currently running a Yaesu FT-991 for a base with a Diamond CP5H antenna. (Yeah, no HOAs.  My new home city only asks the Amateur operators keep their antennas to the back of the house and under 50 feet.)

In 2016 I plan to attend the Desert RATS EXTRA Class training and pass that exam.  I also plan to clean the HAM Shack so I can attach a picture to this biography.  Hi hi

Update Feb 8, 2016:  Recently joined the PAPA System because there are so many good HAMs there.  Also getting active on  HF Digital and learning HRD.
