I have been a licensed amateur since 1989, actually started
as one of the first no-code technicians and worked my way to
Extra class by passing all the code requirements. After
twenty years, I still enjoy the hobby by staying active in
my local ham club (Pioneer Amateur Radio Association) and
the local traffic nets.
I really enjoy county hunting and have worked all counties
(3,077 in the U.S) in 2003 and closing in on the award for
the second time. I enjoy working stations from home as well
as running HF mobile.
My station at home is a Kenwood TS-570S, MFJ-986 tuner and a
Dentron Clipperton-L amplifier with a 160-10 Carolina Windom
and a Cushcraft A3S beam at about 50 feet.
My mobile setup is a Kenwood TS-140S with a Little Tarheel
II screwdriver antenna.
I usually run phone, but do tinker with CW a little. Am
starting to play with some of the digital modes. I really am
interested in PSK but have only listened.
If you need any West Virginia counties, don't hesitate to
email me and I'll see what I can do to assist you. 73!
