Hello from Kennesaw, Georgia (Cobb County, EM74qb). Thanks for visiting my blog.
I was licensed in January 2008 with an interest in using amateur radio for emergency communication purposes. I have since upgraded to the Amateur Extra license and have taught a number of classes preparing individuals to take the Technicians class license.
After developing a strong interest in working the HF bands, I purchased my first HF rig in April, 2010. I have since worked hard to learn more about this wonderful hobby.
My first “homebrew” antenna was a multiband “new carolina windom” which once built and placed was not workableafter many attempts to modify and correct. I disassembled it and built a simple 20M dipole with it. I now have a fan dipole (10M, 15M, and 20M) and an 80M hamstick dipole sitting in my attic.
I really enjoy digital modes and lately have been working on my CW skills. Most of my HF operating happens during the weekend and if we happen to make contact, please QSL via LOTW or Direct.
If you hear any harmonics in the background, just know that my kids and pets may be enjoying the sounds of your transmissions.
Hope to hear you on the airwaves.
