Thanks for taking a second to look me up!  I'm assuming if you're here, we ran into each other in the ether.

Got my license in 2011 and have been having a ball ever since. Since I'm a computer guy at heart, you'll tend to find me on the digital modes typing away. I tend to work 10-160m, with a smattering of 6m when the band is open.  Just put a 2m radio in the shack so you might see me on there as well.

I've been married for I think 21 years (the wife will have to remind me), and have a daughter who is 9 years old. Besides playing with the radio, I enjoy biking, SWLing, playing on old computers, spending time with the kid, and restoring my '66 Mustang.

I'm running either a 43' vertical, a 17m dipole or a 6m dipole on HF, and a J-pole for VHF.  Using a FT-450 for HF and I have a Yaesu FT-2900 for 2m.

Due the popularity of FT8, and not so much of my wallet, and my wife yelling at me for spending so much on postage, I'm sending cards when I get a card.  Nothing pesonal, something about needing money to eat and all that.   This will go back to my normal MO of  'send everyone a card' later.

I upload and confirm on QRZ/LOTW as well.

Lastly - in this busy world of ours, I think sometimes people forget this is a -hobby-.  The purpose is to have fun!  So sit back... drink your favorite beverage, and chill out :)

Thanks for dropping by!


Also... if you have a second, check out the group... Cats and Radios on FB:


Which surprisingly is about... Cats... and Radios.


And because of FT-8, I had to make new cards quicker :)  So, once the previous cards run out, we're on to:
