Biography

I got my first license as a novice back in 1971, which lapsed due to other life activities (wife, kids, job, other such minor things). Then I retested at FCC office in Chicago and got a General ticket back when you had to pass a code test, late 1970's??? You had to renew every 5 years then, I believe. I renewed once but then that lapsed,also. That call was N9AJL. Life kept me busy until 2016. I retired in 2014, and gradually decided I needed a hobby to keep my mind from turning to jello. So I re-tested for General, and after passing , I did a vanity call request and got my old N9AJL call back. Amazed it was still available!
It's nice to be back in it. Many many things have changed since the mid 1980's. DSP, so many digital modes, new bands, on and on. But the people are still good people. I found a good Kenwood TS450S at Dayton, I've put up what is probably the world's ugliest multi-band dipole for 40, 20, 17,15, and 10 meters. I'm just figuring out the new world of electronic logbooks, contact confirmation in those logbooks, etc. So if I end up doing something old-fashioned by sending a direct QSL card, please humor me!
I enjoy all contacts. I'm not into contests, at least not yet, don't know enough. But I will talk to anyone who will talk to me, so if you hear me on the air, I invite you to say hello. I'm interested in any subjects, and that includes listening to what you are into. So say hi! I am now a member of OMISS, #10801, so drop in there too. I'm exploring JT65 and PSK31, it's nice that the lower powered, less-expensive antenna station has a chance with these modes.
QSL---direct, QRZ, LOTW, eQSL . If someone sends me a card I will do the same. I do not require a SASE.
So get on the air! Join in on the fun!
