Thanks for checking out my QRZ info. I was fascinated with radios from about the age of ten (1965) when I got my first set of walkie talkies but didn't get my ham license until 2005. Since the 80s my main hobby was racing and collecting vintage snowmobiles.  I got out of snowmobile racing and decided that it was time to find a safer hobby. Ham radio was the perfect choice. I love the science that ham radio presents. There is literely a lifetime of learning and experimenting for hams that have a quest for knowledge about the hobby. I mostly work HF but also enjoy VHF including 6 meters. I only use 100 watts or less and quite often work portable and mobile HF. My antennas include a 160 loop, Gap Titan vertical, OCF dipole, 80m double bazooka, Imax 2000 vertical, Cubex quad for 6 and 2m, Comet GP-9 vertical and Alpha EzMilitary for portable use. High Sierra Pro 1800 in the mobile. I mostly chase DX and also love portable operating. Some info about my rigs below. 73.. Mike / WØMSN

I use and highly recommend Alpha Antennas.  http://www.alphaantenna.com/
