I spend most of my time on the HF band I enjoy 17m. I also spend a lot of time on 6m and 10m when these bands are open; but do roam the other band as well. I enjoy rag chewing, PSK31, Satellite Communications and SSTV, locally I'm active on 2m and 70cm. I have tried just about every mode and activity but do not consider myself a contester it's just not my thing, however I do like Special Event Station. That is until I moved into a community with an HOA now it's mostly 2m and 70cm
