After years of procrastinating I finally decided to get my Technician License. October 2012 was granted the call KF7YUU and started my ham radio adventure. Joined KE7GFZ the local club strait away and can be found locally on 443.250+ 103.5 Duvall area or Puget Sound area 441.825+ 103.5.

One of my first objectives with limited resources was long range contact VHF/UHF. Build a tape measure antenna and worked the FM SO-50 satellite with a Yaesu FT-60 for a couple of months until finally breaking down for an ELK 2M/70CM antenna. Within a short time realized I wanted more DX and upgraded to General class February 2013 and applied to change my call sign March 2013, achived Extra class early 2016 and at some point work on CW skills.

January 2014 had an old computer, power supply and surplus Motorola radio, what does a good ham do? Build an IRLP node of course. Node was ran at my QTH for a number of years and now relocated on club repeater running Echo/IRLP 441.825 + 103.5.

February 2014 finally on HF!!! Yaesu FT-450D barefoot at 100 watts to a ZS6BKW about 80 feet in the air flat topped between two trees running from NE to SW. MFJ-941E tuner to cover what the built in tuner will not cover all powered by a Astron RS-35A that will allow room for growth.

Recently started playing around with some digital on HF along with remote link to the station from any internet connection.
