I started as a ham op back in 1978 when I was 12 and I received my novice tag (WA2SWX). I worked an old Eico 753 with a half-wave dipole. After that I let my tag expire and wound up later joining the Air Force and becoming a morse intercept operator intel collector in Crete, Greece for six years. After getting out I sat for the Tech/General exams and passed but never did anything with my license (KE6DDG). Recently, in February of 2015, I sat and took the Tech exam again and wound up with my General tag back 36 years after I sat for my novice. In June of 2016 I sat for and passed the Extra exam.
I enjoy working CW, HF Digital (i.e., JT-65, PSK, RTTY), SSTV and SSB. I have built a couple of small transmitters and receivers and am trying to expand my knowledge base. QRP really allows for easy experimentation. I've also been working QSOs on D-Star, DMR and some C4FM. The hobby surely has many areas to venture into and explore. My station equipment as of right now consists of:
- ICOM 7300
- Yaesu FT 817nd
- Z-100 Plus tuner
- Signalink USB
- ICOM 51A
- ICOM 5100A
- Tytera MD-380 (for DMR)
- Yaesu FTM-100D (for C4FM and APRS)
- G5RV and end fed L up about 30 feet.
Catch you on the airwaves!!
