If you're looking here because we just had a QSO - it was likely QRP, so thank you - you did most of the work! (And don't be confused - I often use the handle 'KENT' for contests.)
I've been licensed since 2004, upgraded to General in December 2005, and finally to Extra in March 2007. You can read more about what finally got me to get my license at my home page, listed above.
On VHF, I do a lot with APRS; on HF, I opreate 95% QRP and 99% CW - I only use a mic for ARRL SS to help the Northern California Contest Club win the gavel. I operate both from my home QTH in Palo Alto as well as at our cabin south of Yosemite National Park (grid DM07ej), where I am slowly learning about wire antennas. I enjoy taking my Elecraft KX1 into the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains to operate via solar power and very simple antennas.
In these days of low sunspot activity, I'm running 100W more often than not; during the day, you can probably find me on the 20m FISTS calling frequency.
I enjoy receiving QSL cards, so I'm happy to send them. If we just had a QSO, chances are that your card will be on the way within a day or so. I'm "good" in the ARRL and 3905CCN buros, learning about LotW, but still prefer paper direct via snail mail.
Numbers? We got numbers: ARSqrp #2085, FISTS #12284 (CC #1974), FP #1244, NAQCC #1348, QRP ARCI # 12485, SKCC #2044, SOC #660; K2 s/n 3641, KX1 s/n 1048.
