Hello from Alabama.
My operation is a Yaesu FT-DX1200 running with an Alinco DM-330MV DC supply, and a LDG YT-1200 auto
tuner. For antennas I use either an Ultimax end-fed long wire with a choke line isolator or a vertical from Alpha.
My VHF-UHF is a Yaesu FT-7900 with a N9TAX dual band slim-jim ladder line antenna. The HT is a Yaesu FT-60R.
I am a member of BARC, Birmingham Amateur Radio Club. Their recent Field Day was enjoyable and taught me a
great deal about the mechanics of portable operation.
My contacts are usually worked on 40, 20 and 17 meters. On the now infrequent 10 meter openings, it's nice to work it.
During the summer of 2016, a 10 meter opening was there during the Ten-Ten Contest, so I was able to get my Ten-Ten
International member number, #77509.
BAMA GAME DAY JOB
College was at UA (Roll Tide) and another three years at the UA Law School.
A few lawyers are nice. I hope that I'm among the nice few. It's a tough profession.
Being nice in that line of work is difficult at times. It's possible, but you better win too.
Unless you seek and enjoy daily conflicts, I might nudge you toward a more peaceful day job!
I enjoy quick trips out to my place in the quiet countryside. It's relaxing with wide open spaces and trails
for walking among the pine trees. Hopefully one day I can go portable there and take my station.
My other hobbies have included sailing, indoor/outdoor range marksmanship, and being a fine cigar enthusiast. Those have been
reduced as a priority now that ham radio is in the picture.
It's great making new ham friends that have the same mindset and interest in an incredibly enjoyable hobby and service.
73 from Bama!!
