I was first licensed in 1994 as a Technician. In 1995, really wanting to work DX on the HF band, I passed the code test and upgraded to Tech Plus. I spent some time working DX on 10 meters before taking a hiatus from amateur radio for a few years.

In 2006 I returned to the hobby and upgraded to General. After that, I purchased a Kenwood TS-430S, put up a homebrewed 20 meter dipole, and started working DX again. In 2007 I decided to finish my testing and upgraded to Extra.

Current station is really nothing fancy. For HF I'm still using the Kenwood TS-430S with a  MFJ-941C tuner with an 80 meter OCF Windom hanging in the pine trees at about 10 meters. For VHF I'm using a KDK FM-2016A into a hombrewed J-Pole in the shack. In my shop I'm using another 2016A into a hombrewed 5 element yagi. On UHF (440) I'm using a KDK-7033 with a homebrew ladder line PVC slim jim.

I hope to be expanding my station as soon as life permits.

QTH is Midcoast Maine, just west of Belfast.

I have always enjoyed the older radios and recently have been restoring some classic receivers and AM radios. The passion for tube radios started with my purchase of a Heathkit AR-3 at a local hamfest. I plugged it in (I now know that was a no, no)  and it worked. That's how I fell in love with the sound and smell of the old tube rigs. Now I'm hooked!

        

 

Dayton Hamvention 2017 

In May of 2017 I made my first trip to the Dayton Hamvention. This was the first year it was located at the Green County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio. My son and I along with KV1B, and KD1O made the 1000 mile journey from  Maine to Ohio to attend one of the largest hamfests in the world. And it did not disappoint!
