My main interest in amateur radio is CW but I like to do a bit of everything! My education is in Communication, and I spent a lot of time working broadcast AM and FM while I was in college. Since getting my license, I've found a lot of interesting stuff, made a few very good friends and had a great time.

I served as the Emergency Coordinator for the Fort Armstrong Wireless Association from 2014-2015, and enjoyed it a lot. I've been working on switching my QTH to solar power as well.

My current HF station consists of an Icom IC-7200, Heathkit HW-101 and Heathkit HW-8. My fist isn't that great, but practice makes perfect. I use only a straight key or bug, but I usually clip a clothespin on the end of the bug to slow it down enough for me. For mobile use, I have a Kenwood TM-G707A dual-bander mounted in my Jeep. For portable use I have a Rock-Mite 40 CW transceiver that I built, and a Yaesu FT-817. For digital modes, I have my IC-7200 plugged into a MacBook Pro running MacLoggerDX, FLDigi and Multi-Mode. I haven't done much digital yet, but that's one of the things I plan to do more of in the future.

I am a member of the North American QRP CW Club (#6225), FISTS(#16061), Straight Key Century Club(#9716T),Old Man International Sideband Society(#8970) and Croatian Telegraphy Club(#3061). I also like to collect keys and other telegraph instruments.

I prefer paper QSLs, but I use LotW and eQSL as well. My preference is to send paper and eQSL both, and I upload my logs to LotW every week or so.

I hope to talk to many of you on the air and make some new friends!

My PRR QSL card. Great work from Lee K7NM at PHOTOQSLS.COM

The desk in my shack. The desk was a Wal-Mart cheapo from a yard sale, the hutch is built from pieces of a bookcase that somebody had set out for the trash. Upcycle! 


My standard loadout: MacBook Pro, Lionel J-36 bug, Lionel J-38 key


My Heathkit HW-8, before I got the Heathkit tuner and SWR/Wattmeter

Heathkit HW-101, fun to operate and all those tubes keep the shack nice and warm.
