This site will be about my ham radio doings. I have my US Technician license. And in June, 2013, I passed the test and received my General class license. In October, 2014, I purchased my vanity license call.

My first wallpaper item ! I saw my listing in the January, 2016 QST, but I had no idea I had won anything as I was at the bottom of the list with the fewest points.

Civilian Conservation Corps special event station August, 2015

253 days ago

The Calhoun County Amateur Radio Association had their annual CCC special event station to commemorate the people and the hard work they did. It is held at the stone tower, with museum, the second Tuesday in August.

I was the radio operator from approximately 9:25 AM until approximately 10:14 AM.

Here is their web page on this special event.

The tower with museum attached. CCARA special event station to the right.

Our set up in the shade. We had tried 40m band earlier, but too much static. We switched to 20m band and got better reception. Still had a bit of fading.

wasps in the shack, sprayed for them.

too hot out there as well.

So, June of this year was when I was last in the shack. Now that it is cooling off I’ll try to get out there more often.

Field Day gave me a big boost in QSOs. Of course, I was finally able to get back on the air in time for Field Day. Antenna move completed.
