I started my Radio life in the Air Force, as a Radar Operator. I always enjoyed our control nets and data links to different agencies over the radio. 21 years later I retired, and figured that was the end of my time on the radio, even though I would miss it! As it turns out my next door neighbor is a HAM, and I would lean over the fence and chat about the latest antenna that he was putting up, or what nets he was checking into. This satisfied that itch for a while, but never really satisfied my radio habit. Finally I decided that I would go and take the test, and get into the hobby. Since then I have taken all three tests and hold have my Extra class ticket. These days I am active in our local club Utah Valley Amateur Radio Club (UVARC) as well as the Utah Amateur Radio Club (UARC). I also get out and surf the Low bands quite a bit, and recalling those data link days in the Air Force, I love working the digital modes, mostly JT65 and JT9. I am currently working towards getting the Worked All States and Continents of the World awards for each band digital. Have those covered on 20m and 40m. 30m and 80m will probably be the next on the list. I also enjoy getting DX stations and seeing all those flags in my log book.
These are the QSL cards that I have had
My first award
And my first contact to Antarctica, what a thrill!
