Ham Member Lookups: 720

 

I'm a new ham and still feeling my way around the hobby. Got my Technician License in Feb. of 2012 and my General in October of 2012. Lately, I've been trying to learn CW. SKCC # 12388.  I'm still slow and sloppy, but my Beggali keyer helps smooth out my code. I also have a Vibroplex Bug and a Lionel J-36 straight key, but my code on those will be a rough copy.  I generally hang out between 7.055 and 7.122 looking for QRS QSOs.  Best speed that I can work for now is around 7wpm and hopefuly will improve with practice.

I also enjoy working with ARES and setting up remote for public events, exercises and field day.  I use an Icom 2800H in my shack and a Yaesu 8800R in the mobile for work on 2 meters. My shack also consists of a Kenwood TS-590S, and an Elecraft KX3 feeding an 80M homebrew dipole and a 40M Eagle One vertical.  Currently, the 80 M dipole is on the ground.  It was too heavy for the high winds here in North Georgia.  I've got a lighter version about ready to go up.

I'm 72 years old and retired from the Air Force in 1991, then retired from Lockheed Martin in 2003. I think I finally got it right that last time.

 

73 and see you down the log,

Mike
