I was introduced to amateur radio in 1992 while attending the Texas Star Party in the Fort Davis area.   Since I'd enjoyed the CB craze in the mid 70s, I was easily pulled into this new hobby.  The 5-WPM code test was not too difficult, but landing a passing grade on the 13-WPM exam took a couple of tries.  Nevertheless, I quickly achieved my Advanced-Class license.  In 1999, I gave hamming a long rest when I went back to school.  

After retiring from NMSU's Astronomy Department in 2015, I joined the Mesilla Valley Radio Club N5BL, passed the Extra-Class exam, and became an Volunteerer Examiner for the ARRL and Laurel.  Although it's great to be back on the air, amateur radio is just one of my many hobbies.  I also enjoy RVing, boating, fishing, gardening, home brewing, exericising, and amateur astronomy.  With respect to the latter, see link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_J._Brewington

That's my Cushcraft MA5VA 5-band vertical on the left and my Mosley TA-33-M yagi on the right.  


Here's my MA-40 (40-foot) US Tower.


This is my Hy-Gain T2X Tail Twister.  The rotator turns the entire tower from its base.  


My MA-40 tower has a lifting arm, which allows for easy access to my TA-33-M Mosley beam.
