I love to ragchew, contest and chase dx. My current station consists of a Yaesu FT-2000, MFJ-989D antenna tuner and an Ameritron AL-811H amplifier. For 40 meters my main antenna is a dipole up at 80 feet. For 75/80 meters I have an inverted vee whose apex is at approximately 60 feet with the ends around 45 feet. I used to have a ground mounted HF6V butternut vertical with 55 buried radials but unfortunately a tree fell on it this summer and destroyed it. I will definitely be replacing it!

My favorite mode of operation is CW but I also enjoy SSB and AM. If you hear me on CW I may be sending anywhere from 32 to 55 WPM but if you call me I will adjust my speed to yours. That's a promise. I enjoy QRP and in the summer months I take my FT-817 to northern Minnesota and/or northern Wisconsin while camping. I use strictly dipoles.

I have also learned to love and appreciate the occassional sporadic E openings on 6 meters. I use my FT-817 without an external antenna, just the rubber-duck antenna that attaches to the rig via a BNC connector. I work stations all over the USA with only 5-Watts. Amazing indeed!!

This past summer I lost my good friend Bruce, WA0GNO to cancer. He was my high school math and physics teacher and a true life-long friend. We operated field day together many times over the years. He was a heck of a good operaror. I will carry his spirit and love of ham radio with me the rest of my life.

If you hear me on the bands please give me a shout.
