In the late 60's I started listening to distant stations on both AM broadcast and shortwave radio. After receiving several QSLs from stations I sent a signal report to, I decided it would be more fun to talk with others on the radio. I began studying for my Novice license and learning the Morse Code in 1968 and the next year passed the exam.
With the help and encouragement of several friends I had my Advanced class license in 1972. That was the same year I made my first six meter contact with a borrowed Sixer. Though I started in Amateur Radio of HF, I am an avid VHF/UHF operator. I currently operate 50 and 432 MHz, but hope to have a tower up in 2017. With the tower up I wil add 144 and 1296 to the bands I operate. My favorite thing to do on Ham Radio is chase DX on six meters. I haven't forgotten HF though and have a vertical antenna with a radial field for 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meters. In recent months I have enjoyed working DX on 40 meters.
I hope to work you in a band opening soon.
