Hello - I am Ken from Alma, ON Canada

I originally studied to obtain my license in the winter of 1975. However life and circumstances got in the way of that. But I never lost the desire to obtain my ham ticket.

Fast forward to Spring 2012, I finally challenged the exam and received a Basic with Honours license some 35 years later!!  So another item checked off my bucket list !   

Radios: Elecraft K3, ICOM 746, Icom IC910h, Yaesu FT 817 QRP rig, Yaesu FT8800 mobile, and a restored Yaesu FTDX 400

Antennas; Alpha Delta Dipole, Force 12 C3 Tribander, InovAntenna LFA 144 & 70cm LFA432 on a TX-455 55 foot tower. Have 6 meter TGM yagi on a restored 40 ft "Paul Bunyan Whip" tower.

I have a great HAM shack in my sunroom - so there is lots of sunlight and moonlight. It is a great place to sit and HAM (just ask the Cat). I don't get as much time as I would like to play radio, but I enjoy every minute I do get. Work still seems to get in the way of my hobbies.

I enjoy hamfests, field days, motorcycles and photography.

The past few years found me renewing my CW skills and obtain my code certification (even though it is no longer required). I enrolled in CwOps this past fall and that was the push I needed to get back on the air. Also challenged the Morse Code exam and received my certification. I had learned code in 1975 but if you don't use it you lose it !  Any Elmering with CW will still be appreciated as I attempt to ramp up my speed.

This past March I participated in a CW Demo with the Elmira Amateur Radio club at the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival and numerous people came forward and said "so people are still doing Morse Code in todays world why" ... well it works when other communications do not and it's the "original digital"..

Looking forward to meeting you on the HF bands. I also have 2 meter & 70cm capability so you may find me there too.
