Always wanted a licsence but don't have the time...I may pull rank and get it for my work in very remote areas. Otherwise I have a cheapy but good Eton E5 for SW, and use it frequently for music experimentation.

I have been since 94. Did a lot of home brewing at first with old tubes etc. First 3 years did cw on my rigs. Mostly rag chew on 80m now. I do not have room for a 160m antenna but will try to get one up anyway.

Conditions good to the Pacific tonight. Just worked T32C several times rather quickly on several bands without the amp. (East Kiribati - Christmas island)

12m 00:32z SSB
15m 00:35z CW
10m 00:36z CW
10m 00:39z SSB

Back to listening to the static on 6 meters and hoping for an opening.

I have a N2 call sign, never went for general.

Should get a book to read up and go take test, been out of it for 18+ yrs.

Still have radios stuffed in basement from when I moved back then.

It's changed a lot over the years. Testing is often done by a local club. Might be study groups.

Buckshot, it would be honor to talk to you on the bands. Or any other BOB for that matter. I think it would be great to get a pipe net going on 15m,20m,or 40m.

Or I could just throw this out there and see how it goes. According to hamqsl.com 40 and 20 are supposed to be good tonight so if anyone is around later say after 7pm. I will be tuned and listening to 7.250 or in the general area depending on if anyone else is on that freq.

Name here is Ian, KB8ZVJ.

I too think enjoying a fine briar with an English blend while hamming it up is most delightful.

If anyone so desires, I would be willing to net control a ham-briar net on echolink, if I can find a willing echolink node owner and sponsor.

Thinking of Sun nights at 9:30pm eastern.

The ham population in the USA has never been higher than it is now. We went over 700,000 hams recently. So many different directions to go. I am often chasing some DX, or contesting some on weekends. Otherwise I am monitoring 6 meters for an opening.

I launch High Power Rockets and to be able to buy the telemetry device used for tracking the rockets once you lose sight of them, you have to have a HAM license.  So I ended up studying for all 3 tests, passed the first two at our local HAMFEST, and missed out on the Extra Class by 3 questions.  I then got talked into going to the Dayton, Ohio Hamvention a couple of months ago and then took the Extra Class test there and passed, missing only one question.  My brother in law has been a HAM for 40+ years and has talked to 364 countries (has 3 left to go).  He just sent me a Kenwood handheld dual-band radio but I have no idea how to use it, so I'll have to get with one of our local guys in the club to show me how to operate the thing.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I just wanted to check in.  Im K7TUX and have been licensed since 2009.  Im General Class and have a Kenwood TS-440 SAT with a double G5RV about 40 ft up the whole length.  I also run 2m/440cm/6m/10m quad band Yaesu in my truck.  My wife is also a ham.  I hope to actually have a true hamshack built this summer so that I can work the air and smoke my pipe at the same time.  Currently my rig is in the guest bedroom.  Glad to see several hams here on the site.  Maybe we can have a pipe & Ragchew net sometime.  I work all bands that I can as well as some digital.

Hi d4klutz, thanx for checking in. Good idea about trying a ragchew net. I can work 80 through 10 meters, but I spend most of my time on 80.  My station is mostly boatanchor equipment, but I have an Icom IC-756PROII that I run on SSB.  My antenna couldn't be simpler: it's an all-band dipole fed with 450 Ohm line (a center-fed Zepp). I don't run any digital modes or CW, only AM & SSB.  I've been licensed since 1969.

BTW, I changed back to my original call last month.  I'm now WA2MER once again.

73,
Jim

Thought I'd revive an old thread.  Since I was on here 2 years ago, I have gotten more involved with the hobby and attend weekly meetings with our local club every Thursday evening.  I did finally get a Kenwood 281A mobile unit for the Suburban, and a Kenwood TS-2000 but don't have the HF rig up yet.


and got new vanity call sign too
