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.

Revamping this web site. March 10, 2022.

Jul 14 Added the navigation menus back in.

March, 2022

Mar, 10 I checked and they list my QSOs as 88. And confirmed a 34 of them. One is fairly new. Relatives did some work in the backyard in 2021. ( Their yard. ) Wound up cutting my coax to my HF antenna. I have to move it and connect the coax back. So I haven’t been on HF in some time now. Maybe I’ll be up for Field Day, 2022.
