Thanks for looking me up on QRZ.com.
I started out in ham radio as a teenager with a Novice license (KA7MVT) in April 1982 and by August 1982 I had upgraded at the FCC office to General class (N7ELL). I remained at General until 1992 when I upgraded to Advanced and finally Extra. I like using all the modes but enjoy CW the most.
I enjoy participating with the Maricopa County Emergency Communications Group (MCECG) see website ==> mcecg.net, the 4x4 Ham group see website ==> www.4x4ham.com, the Golden Bear Amateur Radio traffic net see website ==> http://www.goldenbearnet.org/and the Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (3977.7 kHz) ==> www.satern.org.
Current Station: Main rig for chasing DX is a Kenwood TS2000 with various amplifiers, Tashjian LM-470 crank-up tower (70ft), Antennas 75m/80m Fat Dipole, Force12 Delta 230/240 (30m/40m), Force12 5BA (20m through 10m), Diamond X510 (2m/70cm), J-pole (220MHz), 900 MHz yagi. For ragchewing on 75m, the TS940S and the TL922A seem to work quite well.
I finally completed Worked All States Triple Play on LOTW; #945 on December 9th, 2013. Onward to the next piece of wallpaper!

The 2014 ARRL Centennial event was a blast! Every Tuesday at 1700 local in AZ, I was chasing Domestic DX. Some of the pileups were enormous. What a hoot! Thanks to everyone for all the contacts.
A friend of mine, Mark Coker KC7JOG (SK), use to say "If you have the power, use the power; don't let the operator on the other end suffer trying to pick your signal out of the noise". Good luck and good DX.
