Yes, I do have a very low voice!

I moved to CT in 2015 after 30 years in CA.  In the past I lived with CC&Rs so I was almost always using a Buddipole dipole.  Now I have 8 homebrew antennas up including an 80M OCFD, 80M G5RV, a 2ELE triband wire beam, a fan dipole on 30, 15 and 10, a 40M G5RV, a 160M Inverted L and a 6m Yagi plus 2m and 70cm Yagis.  My primary rig is an Icom 7600 but on UHF and Satellites I am using an Icom 910.  I also use my original Icom 746 Pro, and an Icom W32A, Kenwood DH-7A and a ConnectSystems CS-580 DMR Radio.

I love making antennas, and have made wire dipoles, fan dipoles, crossed yagis and many collinear designs.  Recently I got a great deal on an A3S with the D40.  Now working on saving for a tower.

I enjoy HF, VHF, UHF and some satellite operations.  Mostly I love to contest.  Generally I work 30 and 17 metres, and prefer to be up on 15, 12 and 10.  I mostly work CW and SSB, but occasionally PSK, RTTY.  I must confess, I also love working Hellschriber for the sound it makes.

My previous callsign was W0EEC - I changed to N1DID to honor Ben Wright, K9DID, when he went SK.  You can read about Ben and comments at http://www.eham.net/friends/displaystory/2781.  I am currently elmering KK6DAY,

BTW, don't laugh at my Buddipole - mine is on steroids.  It will tune all bands 17 meters and above without coils and will tune flat across 40M and some of 80M as a vertical with a good counterpoise.  I've worked over 140 countries and all continents with it!
