Ham Member Lookups: 20268


I also QSL via http://www.eqsl.cc

I have an obsession with anything vintage and antique. Current ham-passions are SSB DX, digital modes, weather satellite decodes, and SSTV. I am learning morse code, and would love to try out EME one day. Below are photos of my shack, as well as my last 20 QSO's & QSO map (via https://www.hrdlog.net), then some photos of my vintage equipment (boat-anchors, morse keys, speakers, mics, etc.), then some holiday and related photos, and below that are certificates which I have acquired, mainly through PSK31.
