Biography

Wanted to be a ham since age 11 but never could get to it. Finally, after I retired and then my wife died, I decided I needed to finally get into the hobby. Started with a TS-440 and an inverted v dipole when I passed the extra class exam in January, 2010. I am having so much fun now and enjoy the challenges of propagation and QRM. I live on a small suburban lot so antenna options are very limited.
Now using a TS-590SG with a hexbeam 5-bander and a GAP Challenger for the lower bands. Trying to work all modes and get better antennas. Really enjoy the help from local clubs: Utah DX Association, Herriman Amateur Radio Club and Utah Amateur Radio Club.
Found a new wife who was a widow. She is supportive of the hobby and has her Tech license.

Equipment

Limited antennas because of a small city lot but trying to do the best I can with some Kenwood and Flex radio equipment. Able to run about 500 watts on an ALS-600.
