Thanks for stopping by to visit my page.

 

As a youngster, I was always interested in radio. I will admit that in my youth I was quite the 11 meter enthusiast. Time went by, life went on and priorities took priority, and It took me until 2015 to get to the point that I could fully get in to the Ham hobby. I was licensed in 2015 and am slowly building my station. I have a four year old son who takes up most of my time so the hobby gets what (if any) time is left over.

My current go-to now is CW. At 52, it is  bit of a struggle getting my speed up from 0 WPM where I was at the start of my quest in October 2017, but I'm getting there....

 

Above is the main battle station. I am currently restoring a 500 watt amp for that little extra when needed, but for now 100 watts is max, and doing a FB job.

 

Below is my Home Brew 60 Ft Tilt tower. I made it from 2 7/8" oil well tubing. I plan to build a rotor and Hex Beam which will bolt to the plate on the top. I'm currently using it to hold up a 2 meter antenna and to hoist up my homebrew Fan Diapole  which I use for 40 - 6 meters.

 

Here it is tilted over for maintenance. It is currently about 10 lbs "bottom heavy", but that will change once I get the rotor / hexbeam setup installed.
