  I am a new ham. I recieved my ticket in May of 2017. I purchased a 2 meter radio or 3 and contented myself to exploring the local nets and satelite bounces but knew there was more to the hobby. At the end of June I broke down and bought an Icom IC-7300 and built a fan dipole designed to cover 40,20, and 10 meters. Much to my surprise, I didn't get the expected 15 meters but instead gained 80. Looks like the harmonics of the 3 wires played a trick on me.

  I have been exploring the digital modes, focusing heavily on psk31 and JT65 after being introduced to it at Field Day by a local ham, AB5KM Kent. I can't thank him enough for all the support and mentoring he gave me. I must say that so far I have had nothing but positive experiences with the HAM community as a whole. 


  I look forward to seeing you on the air, 73's to all.




I will exchange hard copy QSL upon reciept of your card.
