My Ham Radio Interests
My is Joe and I have been a ham for 35 years. I have enjoyed CW for the past 33 years on the air. On HF 30 meters is my favorite band. Code speed of 20 wpm is my normal but I will QRS if I am asked to.

One day someone introduced me to the satellites at field day. I made my first satellite contact in December 12, 2000. I am active on A0-7, AO-27and SO-50.

Choccolocco is in the Anniston area which is about 20 miles north of the Talladega Raceway.

I QSL 100% no SASE required. Please no EQSLs. I like to display all my QSL cards.

Dx by bearu 100%.
