I was licensed in 2015 but tried operating HF for the first time on Field Day 2016. Days after that I purchased my first multi-band HF radio, Yaesu FT-450D, which I used until December 2016 when I switched to an ICom 7100. My first antenna was the MFJ-2286 which is a 17' telescoping stainless steel vertical, mounted on the roof, which covers 80-10 meters with a MFJ-941D tuner. The antenna has a loading coil which needs to be tuned manually, so the obvious downside was that I needed to climb the fire escape to the roof if I wanted to change bands. That's why I stayed mostly on 20m.
My antenna in Ridgewood was a 134 foot loop of wire around the rooftop which I used to connect to a AG6IF 2.5:1 "Talented Balun" but then I switched to 450ohm window line. It was held above the rooftop by several 10' PVC pipes, secured by duct tape and bank line.

Until recently my weak signal and compromise antenna and operating location made it difficult to get good results operating SSB voice, so I was mostly active on JT65 and JT9. I recently purchased a used AL-80B amp and a used AT2K tuner with which I hope to be more active on SSB voice.

I log each QSO automatically to eQSL and also update LoTW and QRZ several times each day.
I enjoy exchanging paper QSL cards directly and I will gladly send you mine directly if you want it, although it might take me a while to get around to it. No need for SASE. I do not use the Bureu.

I was located in Ridgewood in Queens, New York but on 2017-10-01 I moved to Briarwood, also in Queens, NY.

My antenna is even more compromised at the new QTH but that makes me treasure each contact even more.
This also means that I might finally try operating portable HF and also portable to the FM and SSB satellites.

I am trying to get the 5-band WAS before we enter the solar minimum.

Please note that on 2017-04-15 I changed my call sign from N2NYU to KG2C.

I am originally from Bulgaria.
