I started in Ham Radio when I was 18 through the efforts of my Elmer, WA2BXK. I had a great interest in 6 meters FM using a remote 250 watt FM base station when radio tie-lines were cheap. I currently operate on all HF bands up thrugh 900 MHZ. I live in a gated HOA community in Central Floirda and have been very successful using a Force 12 - V84 Flag Pole antenna with abut 35 radials buried under the sod. My rig is an ICOM 756 PRO II feeding an Alpha 89. I use only Heil micrphones with the station mic. a PR 40 Brodacast mic. feeding a W2IHY 8 band EQ. The shack photo is my previous shack in upstate NY prior to retiring to Florida. It is a CQ Magazine Photo Shoot and my cat buddy Luca and I were in the February 2012 issue of the CQ Calendar. He still hangs with me in my Florida shack which looks much like the photo. I have been a Ham for over 40 years and was previously an ARRL Asst. Director in the Hudson Division, and am currently an Assistant Director in the Southeast Division. I am the Club Engineer for the Lake Amateur radio Association and a member of the Board of Directors.
