Home Station:  Kenwood TS-590 often with a Heathkit SB-200 amp

                           Antenna is either a 80 meter dipole up 30 ft (10 meters) tuned with a Dentron Tuner  OR

                                              Inverted V 40 meter dipole with apex about 21 ft (7 meters)

First Licensed in 1964 as a General  -  back when you had to pass 13 wpm code.  Upgraded to Advanced Class, then, when the code requirement dropped, quickly got the Extra Class before they had a chance to change their mind about the code!

For years, I worked on SSB (or AM back in the really old days).  After retiring in 2010, I first learned how to use digital modes, then I found MRP 40 software to help me get into CW.  With more modes and the solar numbers going up, I got my DX chasing in full gear.  SO -- watch for me in the pile ups; I hope my behavior is good DX manners.

I also participate in ARES activities, although I am still a beginner on VHF/UHF. 

If we meet and you have the time and inclination, I'd certainly enjoy a rag chew.  It's always fun to meet new folks and find out about their lives inside and apart from radio.

Apart from Ham Radio, I tutor adult High School Equivalency students on the Math Section of that Exam.  I also enjoy taking our camper van to visit National Parks. 

73 to all of you
