Thanks fer visiting my page.I got my novice ticket in later part of 89 and extra in Dec 91.I remember my dad in his radio room (my old bedroom after I left the nest) chatting away on phone.Then one day he brought home a comadore 64 with rtty on it,BAMM,I never fergot that mode. It took me years before I got the bug ,due to family es just plain trying to make it.Dad is a SK (WD6FFU),here I am in my shack just thinking about old times.One thing I was not told about, is the amount of debt you will get if you really get into this hobbie,hi hi.

Fast forward,now I am retired es putting more time into radio,after being on the road fer 30 years building power plants as a UNION STEAMFITTER,and proud of it,I am enjoying walking into my new shack (with heat ,this time) and just playing first thing in the morning.

I started out on CW es RTTY (no voice yet in this shack) I can still remember the thrill I got passing the 21 wpm cw exam,whew,I gar-in-tee I am no where near that speed today.I started out on RTTY with a Trash 80 es slowly worked my way up.Right now Im doing the psk thingy.Lotta fun ,but think I will be hitting the key in the near future.

After retiring I moved from California to Washington best move I ever made.Qth is about 40 miles from Canada and on the east side of state.I live on the forest line es there is an abundance of 80 ft trees around that will suck the sig right out of you.hi hi.Didn't even consider radio when I bought this property.duhh

My favorite saying "it is what it is",gud way to look at life,as far as I am concerned.Just me es mama(Melodie) es the dog(China) and new cat(Buddy),got to keep xyl out of feed store, es of course the bear,deer,moose,elk,turkeys,cougar,wolves ect.oh yeah cant ferget about the fishies

"Its all gud" enjoy the hobbie!

Personal note:I WILL ANSWER ALL QSLS,NO SASE NEEDED,I PERSONALLY DONT UNDERSTAND HAMS SAYING ITS TO EXSPENSIVE,REALLY?ALSO WHEN AN EVENT IS ON "FOR MEMBERS ONLY"COME ON,BETTER THINK WHAT HAM RADIO IS ALL ABOUT!
