In 1968 I started listening to short wave bands with a Knight Kit radio I built. I became more interested in Ham Radio via the Electronics club in High School and club station there. After watching several hams operate I was hooked. I built many Heath Kit rigs and obtained a like new Hammarlund HQ-170ac receiver which I still have.US Naval service was next during the 70's, where I completed the Submariner Morse Code Operators School after Radioman training. After Naval service had time to get the Extra class ticket . I have recently retired after working as an Industrial Maintenance Electrician.The RF radiation duties are handled by a rebuilt HYGain TH7DX (20-15-10), Cushcraft D3W rotary dipole for the WARC bands, and a Alpha Delta DX-A Twin Sloper for 160-80-40 meters. At 45 feet I have a M2 Loop for 6 meters and a Ringo Ranger on 2 meters. Chasing DX for 5 Band DXCC, participating in occational contests on CW or RTTY, and occational antenna experiments keep me busy, along with many grandchildren and trips with my XYL. A good rag chew is always welcome, and I operate FSK RTTY and PSK, but CW is still my favorite mode as our name of our boat does imply, keep CW mode alive! (Get to explain it when asked about it).

The picture below is taken in a 130 foot man lift next to the Mississippi River. Here I am with a co-worker installing a camera above a eagles's nest. (Pre-Retirement). Nesting occurs February-April. Search Arconic eaglecam for the video feed.

 

I upload to LOTW regularly. I will QSL back to you if I receive yours, a SASE is appreciated. I do not monitor QRZ Logbook or messages.
