Biography

Used to enjoy rag chewing AM phone on 75, 40, and 10 meters running vintage and homebrew gear. Also enjoyed chasing DX with 450 milliwatt to 5 watt QRP on 10. Left the hobby in 1985, gave all my gear away and took a long nap like Washington Irving's Rip Van Winkle. I woke up October 2015 to a new and mostly digital world of Ham Radio. This time around I would like to pursue the "magic" band 6m and these new digital modes. - 73 de Joe KA3CFX

Equipment

Limited to a stealth fan dipole installed in the attic, thanks to the HOA I now live in. I miss my antenna farm, but we moved into town and this low maintenance rancher serves my old body well. It's a challenge for my weak signal to be heard. Thank goodness for the ample antennas and extraordinary patience of those who pick up my call.
