I received my Novice class license (KA8ETK) in March 1979, General class in November 1979, and finally Extra class in December 2009. I was an avid contester & DXer until 1988, then got out of the hobby.
I became active again in March 2009, and bought all new equipment. Main rig is a K3/100, P3 & KPA500 and recently added a 2nd K3/100 as a back-up radio. I have another complete station consisting of a Icom 746Pro with a AL-811H amplifier. Put up a tower, which holds the A4S, a 3 ele 6 meter beam, and the 2 meter vertical. Added a DX-88 vertical and about 5,000 feet of radials to the backyard. Also have a 40/30/17/12 meter fan dipole up at 35 feet and just recently (April 2012) put up an 80 meter dipole.
I retired in December 2012, and have set the station up to enable us to work remotely from anywhere in the world. It makes staying on top of the DXpeditions very easy now. I am able to control the K3, KAT500, KPA500 and Green Heron rotor control, so it is almost like sitting in the shack back in Ohio!
My XYL, Claire, earned her Tech class (KD8CMB) in April 2010 and will soon be going for her General class. Claire took and aced the General Class test on June 4, 2011. She's now onto the Extra Class study guide.
If you hear either of us on the air, please call.

I have activated OQRS for those who are interested in receiving a QSL card from me, BUT only via the bureau. I usually mail cards to the ARRL Outgoing QSL Service approximately 3 times a year.
