I enjoy CW and although my skills aren't great at the moment I'm working on improving my speed and accuracy so please be patient.
My main interest is in HF DX at the moment. I also use local FM repeaters as well as DStar using a SharkRF OPENspot for access. If on DStar I tend to monitor Reflector 001C. I have an APRS digipeater and iGate which is often online if I am "playing radio" although it is not running 24/7.
