Biography

Greetings,

I live in the Pacific Northwest of the United States in Salem, Oregon. I am a retired Software Engineer and Computer Science Professor. I am also a Disabled American Veteran having served in the United States Marine Corps as a Staff Sergeant of Marines. I have only been an amateur radio operator a short time having earned my Technician license in March 2017 – I upgraded to General class in August of 2017. I got involved in amateur radio late in life feeling a need for a challenging pass time in retirement. I am studying for and hope to take the Amateur Extra exam in 2021. I am also studying CW, but it is a slow go for this old timer.

I also have a Wires-X node. The node number is: 40766 (W7DDE-Darrel). I usually have my node up and running during the day and early evenings and I do welcome QSOs in my room. 

I log QSOs via QRZ, eQSL, HRDLog, QRZCQ, Club Log, and LOTW (usually daily). I also do Bureau and sometimes return directly. If you send me a QSL card direct, I will send one back – postage and SASE very much appreciated, but not necessary.

Semper Fi and 73,

Darrel, W7DDE

Equipment

My HF rig is a Yaesu FT-991A paired with a LDG Autotuner. I have a Kenwood TM-D710G I use for Packet as well as a backup for VHF/UHF. My mobile rig is an FTM-400DR.
My antennas are a BuckMaster Off-Center-Dipole (6 - 80 meters), an EMCOMM II (6 - 160 meters) antenna, and a Diamond CP610 vertical. I also have a 20-meter dipole in my attic for backup and I also have two Diamond X-50A antennas, one in my attic for the Kenwood and the other on my roof for my FT-991A.
