I've been a ham radio operator since 1972, when my "Elmer," Roy (WA2SLO), nursed me through the Novice exam and the Morse Code test of five words per minute. Whew! Two years later my buddy Mike (WA2DLN) and I went down to Varick Street in lower Manhatten (near where the Twin Towers once stood) and passed our General Class exams. That was just about one of the best days of my life. What a feeling of accomplishment. I later passed my Advanced Class test and was VERY active for many years, but, as the schoolyard poem goes "first came love, then came marriage, then the baby carriage."
In 2007, after pretty much being QRT for 24 years, things settled down enough to where I could get back into the hobby. And I found that while ham radio has changed in many ways - I'm having a ball with these digital modes, especially JT65 - the basic idea hasn't; it still comes down to meeting great people who share a passion for communicating with RF.
Speaking of the baby carriage, my daughter Jennifer (the girl in that carriage) passed her Technician exam in February 2010 to become KB1TSU. Just six months later she passed her General and we could not be prouder! Jen's new-found interest in the hobby inspired me to study for my Extra class ticket, which I passed in January, 2010. (Jen and I later created the Worked All Kruh Award which we proudly give to any ham who works both of us in the same mode.)
So take a look around - be sure to see this page of great software for the shack and the page of study materials so you can get or upgrade your license. If you have any questions, whether about the site, my station, setting up a sked, or if you need an "Elmer" then please feel free to send me an email.
