Moved to Mars Hill, NC from Long Island, NY when I retired in 2008 after 30 years in Law Enforcement, after living in Mars Hill, NC for three years, my wife and I chose to move back to New York. In the shack I use a Kenwood TS2000, with a LDG KT100 and a SignaLink USB into an Alpha End Fed Antenna, and a Diamond Tri Band Antenna for 2 meter and 440. On the mobile end I use a Yaesu 857D with a Atas120 antenna, and a Icom ID-5100 for Dstar. I have a SGC SG-2020 as a back up HF radio in the shack and for portable use, as well as a Vertex 1210 HF portable. I just added a Elecraft KX-3 with the 2 Meter option, I just love radio. Also use a Icom ID-51 HT for Dstar and portable. Some of my hobbies are flying, photography, shooting, camping and electronics.
