I have been interested in HAM radio since 1981 when I got my Novis ticket at a whopping 5 WPM, but did not do much with it at that time. The family and kids seemed to take all available time away from the hobby. I got my Technician ticket in 2010 and a month later took my General and six months after that my Amateur Extra. I enjoy both the personal and technical aspects of this hobby very much, and enjoy building new projects on an ongoing basis. The newest project is a SoftRock SDR radio for QRP at 1 watt output.
I like to do remote DX work at different locations. The next one will be at 8000ft above sea level at Cloud Cap peak in Crater Lake National Park on July 23rd, 2016 in my home state of Oregon. We will be celebrating the 100th birthday of the National Park Service using the special event call W7C and operating on 6, 10, 15, 17 and 20 meters during the day and 40 meters at grey line. I will be operating as J6/N7DWL this November 7 - 14th, 2015 from the island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean, on 6,10,15 and 20 meters.
I run all iCom equipment, from the ic-2820H mobile to my DXpedition ic-7000 and ic-7300 Base. I have a ic-T70A HTfor 2 meter/70cm. for portable and emergency work and an icom id-51A for D-Star. Antennae at the QTH are a G5RV 80 meter through 10 meter, a Butternut HF9V verticle and a Diamond X300 for 2 meter and 70cm.
