I just got my license back in the summer of 2008 (technecian, general, and extra) as a birthday present to myself. I've always been interested in electronics since Jr. High but just never got around to taking the test. So for my 46th birthday I bought an old shortwave and began listening to ham radio stations and once I did, I was bit with the amatuer radio bug. :-)

QTH is Venus, TX. The shack at this moment consists of the following:

Radio Shack DX-440 - for short wave listening
Yaesu FT-2000
Buckmaster OCF 7 Band, 3000W version - 20' Apex
Yaesu 7900R - 2m/440 for local repeaters
Yaesu FT60r - 2m/440 handheld for working satellites

Picked up a Rohn 25 tower for Father's day and will hopefully have it up this fall (2011).

I enjoy making DX contacts and exploring all the available modes. I've recently started on PSK31 using a Signalink USB. I also enjoy running QRP just for fun to see how far away I can make contacts on 5W or less. Of course, I enjoy just ragchewing and getting to pick the brains of those who have spent decades in this hobby. If you hear me down in the CW section of the bands, speak SLOWLY please. I'm still learning. :-)

I use LOTW for QSL as well eQSL.cc. You may QSL direct, but I don't have cards made up a this time (hopefully in the near future).

Thanks for reading.
