I've Always Loved Radio!

At 10 years old I wrote a report for school on Guglielmo Marconi. At 12 I'd fall asleep listening to my uncle's CB radio. My most prized possessions at 13 were my walkie-talkies. At 16 I spent a month's pay from my grocery store job to install a 12 volt power supply and a CB radio in my 1965 Volkswagen. At 52 I decided I'd waited long enough and took the Technician and General Amateur Radio tests. I've since upgraded to Extra. Licensed since August 2012 I've found a world I never knew existed in Amateur Radio!

My primary motivation to become a Ham was emergency communication and disaster preparedness. Who knew that something so good for you could be so fun? My wife and kids make fun of me when I get excited about my latest HF contact saying that they can pick up their phone and call anyone in the world. I sincerely hope that Amateur Radio remains only a fun pastime!

My Shack

I have a pretty basic setup that fits my space and budget. I can do 10m-30m and 2m/70cm with my rig.

 

My Antenna

I live in an HOA but I've found a way to work HF and stay below the radar. I have a fiberglass extendable antenna mast and an MFJ Magnetic Loop antenna. Kind of a pain in the rear to tune on frequency changes but it works GREAT. Prominent in my 5 year plan is a house in an area without antenna restrictions. VHF/UHF antenna is in the attic.

I QSL via LOTW, direct and bureau.
