I was hoping to get to DXCC and WAS in my first year.  It took a little longer than that but I finally made it.

A special thank you to everyone who takes the time to confirm our contacts.

I received an award recently, I certainly wasn't expecting this.  Got licensed as a Technician on March 2, 2016 and 3 days later I participated in the ARRL DX contest and somehow received the award for First Place in the Northern New York Division for 10 meters, single operator.  Ok, that's a limited category, but I didn't have many options as a Technician.

 

Later that month I upgraded to General and have recently upgraded to Extra.

I have a very basic station:

Kenwood TS-140S, D-104, and a Radiowavz G5RV Lite dipole about 15 meters off the ground. 

Here's the antenna, finally got it mounted above the trees!  I get really good results on the higher bands, but performance on 40 and 80 is very poor. 

 

For 40 meters, I just put up a homemade dipole, and that's working a lot better.

I live in the Adirondack Mountains at an elevation of about 550 meters in New York State, near Lake Placid, home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics.

In addition to my interest in radio, I have been playing guitar for over 50 years.

Also enjoy astronomy and am fortunate enough to have the darkest skies in the eastern USA right in my back yard.
