               FT8 contacts only by LoTW and or eQSL -  Please no cards. Thank you.

  First licensed in 1980 as KA6JTR in Marina, CA and now, since Apr.'05, living in Missoula, MT.. Went off-air in Dec.'89 but got the 'bug' again in late Jan.'06 to do it again. Was close to 5 band W.A.S. but that had to start over again since moving here but finally got'er done, certificate#3096,along with 17M and 30M endorsements March,21 2013. I was a CW send/Rcv instructor at Ft. Ord, CA in the the late '60's after Vietnam but you would never know it by my fist. Either it's a real art or I'm getting old?

 My equipment is simple: An Icom 7600, Ameritron ALS-600, Icom SM-20 mic (hardly used), SignaLink USB,  Speed-X straight key ( my favorite ) , a Vibroplex iambic key (grey base) and a Vibroplex Original Deluxe bug (need practice). My antenna for now is the rain gutter on the back of the house because of H.O.A. restrictions. An LDG AT-1000pro auto tuner makes it all work on 160-10m.

 CW is my main mode ( 98% ) unless a DX station pops up in the phone portion of a band. Hunting is fun. Now, since March 31, 2016, been playing with FT8, JT65 and JT9 modes ~ Too fun. Give it a try yourself?

If you have just worked me and need Montana I'm more than happy to return a card (s.a.s.e. appreciated).

 A few other interests: my XYL and I used to ride Harleys (sold 'em), home improvement, welding newbie, our Mini Australian Shepherd 'Mick' and Jack Russell 'Mattie' (silent key )sad, hands-on building small projects and fixin' broken stuff, building motorized bicycles, R/C helicopter rookie and shooting  at the local target range with XYL. Competing in pistol matches with GSSF (Glock Sport Shooting Foundation) for fun. Reloading 9mm, .45 ACP & .223 (Colt M4).

I'm glad we met! 73, Jim ~ SKCC #2728S ~ ARRL A1-Op, 7 band W.A.S., WPX, DXCC, TPA #610, W.A.S. RTTY, WAC CW~SSB, JT9/JT65/FT8 W.A.S. LoTW/Eqsl.
