Ham Member Lookups: 2475

 

I love running low power. There is just something about the challenge of making any type of low power contact, that makes "Ham Radio" for me. CW was my main mode of choice, but I'm finding it harder and harder to do CW, because I was recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and it has taken its toll on my hands and body. It has become very difficult to operate CW and my WPMs have suffered for it.

I recently started using Digital Modes in place of CW. I'm very late to the party with PSK31, but I've fallen in love with the mode. I'm enjoying RTTY, JT9, JT65 and FT8, as well. You can catch me on phone occasionally.

Working satellites on my old home modified 2 meter /70 cm VHF TV antenna, is another slice of the hobby I enjoy. I'm still chasing that elusive ISS contact. I'm not the greatest when it comes to keeping an up to date on-line log, but I'm working on it. I've used a paper log way too long. I hope to catch you down the log. 

73, Scott W5VTC
