Hi, my name's Tom, and I absolutely send QSL cards.

I mainly run QRP with my FT817ND and, for right now, a random wire antenna. I'm still working on my Morse code, and haven't had a CW QSO yet, although I should before long.

[Update]: I have started to use CW now. I apologize to those I've worked, but I swear that I am not using mittens while keying. Hopefully, my comprehension will improve with time, and the jitters will go away.

Lately, I've been playing around with the 20 meter band. My antenna seems to do well there. Eventually, I will get a multi-band vertical, since my small yard and obstructing power line eliminate any convenient horizontal dipole for the HF bands. I'm still working on ideas on how to hook up my PAR End-Fedz 10/20/40.

[Update]: I've been using 15 meters when it is open, and I seem to do better on that band. I also like 10 meters, but it isn't open enough to suit me.

Hope to talk to you soon,

-- Tom

[News] I recently bought a new Ten-Tec Argonaut VI, and I've been using it along with a Ventenna HFp vertical. I've made a few contacts, and I'm still figuring out what this setup can do. The Argonaut's receiver is an absolute joy to use. The HFp is wonderfully easy to set up. I was able to use this combo to get 3 contacts in the Kansas QSO Party under less than ideal band conditions. Hopefully, more fun will occur when the sun starts doing its part.
