Ham Member Lookups: 2219

 

Started in Ham radio at the age of 13 in 1964. Went to a class at the local Red Cross head quarters as many did back then. I was taught CW (at 5 wpm) by an older fellow (forgot his call) that was an ex Navy operator in WWII !..I remember he was the most patient instructor with all us novices. After passing my test I was very active on the novice CW bands with my used Johnson Viking Adventurer  

it was a Crystal-controlled 80-10 meter CW Only transmitter, originally marketed in 1954...so it was probably 10 years old  when I got it!....I had 2 crystals for it so those are the frequencys I camped out at...;) Later I moved on the SSB rigs and higher power stuff. Ham radio finaly fell off the radar in the early 1980's with family.kids,jobs and the like..

I just retired in 2014 and since I have the spare time now my interests have been peaked by all the new digital stuff and in QRP rigs and operation ,I started a Facebook QRP group https://www.facebook.com/groups/qrpradio/ to learn all I could about QRP operation after being absent in the hobby for 35+ years..all I can say is WOW ..the interest has been unbelievable....Anyway that my story and I am sticking to it.. I am now running right  a Elecraft KX3 (barefoot 15 watts max) into an end fed wire until I can afford a tower and Hexbeam,,;)....Hope to meet you in a QSO soon...73 Mike WG7D

Just recently I have been playing with DMR radio and a DVmega hotspot...FUN!
