I operate from West Palm Beach in south Florida with an Icom IC756 Pro III with a vertical 4 bander shown in the photo above, affording me access to 10, 15, 20 and 40 meters. In addition, I have a virtually invisible inverted L long wire antenna that fits into the limited geometry afforded me in our community. With an external tuner, I can also do 80 meters. At this time I operate barefoot at 100 W.

My initial exposure to amateur radio was in High School in Brooklyn, New York, where I attended Brooklyn Tech High School the early 1950s. I had some friends who were involved with amateur radio, but, for reasons lost in the murky haze of time, I did not pursue a license. I joined the US Air Force for a 4 year tour after high school, then to college for a degree in Electrical Engineering, and a career in computer technology. Over the years I operated VHF equipment first as a licensed pilot, then at sea as captain of a sailboat.

We eventually left New York for Florida in 2009. While living here, I made some great new friends who happened to be licensed amateurs of long standing. This re-ignited an old, old interest, and propelled me to study for a license I received my general in May of 2013, and Extra in March of 2014. I applied for a vanity call sign, and now have KJ1T. I am finally on the air, some 60 years after that youthful flirtation.

in January, 2014 I became 'airborne' with a great deal of help from several members of the Lighthouse Amateur Radio Alliance (LARA) in Jupiter, Florida.

I recently joined a morse code class, and intend to explore CW as well, along with RTTY.
