Good Day Friends!

I was interested in radio as a child.  I received my Channel Master walkie talkies (channel 11) at Christmas when I was 12 years old.  Later I explored CB radio with my Layayette Telsat 924.  Dad and I installed an 11 meter 5/8 wave vertical antenna (Hy-Gain CLR 2) mounted on a 3 foot tripod on a flat South Philadelphia roof.  Back then you registered with the FCC and received a callsign; mine was KEP7287.  I was a licensed ham in 1984 as KA3LWC in Philadelphia, PA.  Moved to southern NJ (Audubon, NJ) and received NG2L callsign after passing the Amateur Extra exam.  I currently reside in Mantua Township, NJ (10 miles (16 km) from Phila Int Airport).

Life's distractions put ham radio on hold.  I recently took the Kenwood out of a box from the garage and set up my station for the first time at this QTH.  Cleaned it off, sprayed down all the pots and switches.  Low and behold, it works!  Not much height on my antenna but it seems to do the job.  Ten meters is my favorite band.  I'll need to wait a few years for conditions to improve but occasionally it opens up.  I enjoy spending time with my family (XYL, children and grandchildren), computing, photography and riding my Harley ('04 Softail Deuce).  The photo below was my Yamaha R6.  I had fun creating the photo with Photoshop.  I shot an abandoned building in the Pocono Mountains in PA and plopped my bike inside.  Ham radio is perfect for the dreary winters in the Mid-Atlantic states.  I look forward to adding contacts to my log.
