Hello from South Florida!

Formally my call sign was KI4SFL and changed to W1HQL.

After my entry into amateur radio when I was 53 years young, I discoverd from my father, after all these years, that my grandfather (his dad) was an amateur radio operator. ..After some research, we believe we recovered his call sign, W1HQL. I promptly checked to see if this sign was being used by anyone else. To my surprise it was not, so I applied for a "vanity call".

My shack currently consists of a Kenwood 440, Yaesu FT 8800, RigBlaster+, and of course a computer running HRD.

Antennas are "Inverted V's" a home made "copper-cactus" and a 5 ele vhf/uhf beam mounted on a tripod and telescope gimbals for satellite work and a  MSquare vhf.uhf array with AlfaSpid Rotor.

My log consist of QSO's 50% digital and 50% phone. I am working at becoming proficient enough to GOTA with CW.
