PARTICIPATED 2016 FIELD DAY, NA9U GROUP, SHELBY, INDIANA.
My interests in the Eighties was mainly, VHF - UHF Repeaters and Packet radio.
When the Internet became alive and well, I pretty much went in
other directions, other than Amateur Radio. I'm happy to say after about twenty years,
I have restored my interest in the hobby, and have been active in the HF arena.
Currently, QRP operating has captured my curiosity. ECHOLINK AND DSTAR next on the list.
With some patience, and persistence, its rewarding to see where on this earth you will heard next.
Learning alot and having a blast.
