I accidentally stumbled into ham radio later in life while reading a chapter on amateur satellites in some book I got from the library. I was hooked immediately. My previous call signs were: N8MVI, KF8PH and KG2RP.  I started out on satellites and packet radio, and eventually got into HF.  I find the hobby so much fun. Every day is an adventure. I have experimented with all the modes at some point in time.  My hamming is random and scattered. What I do depends on how I feel at the moment. Whatever feels like fun!

I have been fortunate to be able to put together a wonderful assortment of radios and related equipment. This allows me to compare different radios under different conditions. My station  includes:

    ▫    Icom 756 Pro III to a PW1 Amp
    ▫    Flex 6500 + Maestro
    ▫    Ten Tec Omni VI to an MFJ Intellituner

    ▫    Yaesu FT-817 -> Elecraft T-1 Tuner (this is my traveling and out on the deck or treehouse rig)
    ▫    Elecraft KX3 + PX3
