My base radio is a Kenwood TS-590S with a PAR SM-50 antenna to work the 6m band (which is tough sledding!). I recently added an MFJ-17754 for 40m/20m, which seems to do ok. I also put an ICOM 7100 into my car with a Little Tarheel II for mobile HF. I'm also enjoying DStar using different setups: ThumbDV, DV4mini/LTE, and ICOM 7100 and ID-51A to repeater.

PAR SM-50

Antenna update 10/26/16: I just took down my SM-50 and dipoles and am working on installing a new elevated HF vertical Butternut 9-band with counterpoise. I think for my limited elevation, I will do a bit better on HF with the vertical. Will keep you posted.

I became interested in amateur radio as a way to share the fun of electronics with my son. My father was a ham operator, and although I never got the chance to share it with him, it was something he talked about nostalgically. I recently came upon an old QSL card from 1949 that he had sent when he was about 17 (see attached photo) and have now taken on his old callsign.

I received my PhD in electrical engineering in 1996 and have spent many years working on wireless integrated circuits, in particular WLAN, WiMax, UWB and automotive AM/FM. The "hands-on" nature of ham radio is very rewarding and has helped reignite my original interest in EE, and I'm looking forward to getting to know all the bands and this great community of Hams.

New license 10/26/16: I travel to Korea regularly on business and have received my permit to operate there as HL1ZJM. Looking forward to making some contacts! If you want some tips on how to apply and get your radio inspected, please let me know.

Best Regards,

Jim
