My Ham Radio Interests
FIRST BECAME INTERESTED IN HAM RADIO WHEN I MET A BLIND HAM IN HIGH SCHOOL. HIS NAME WAS BARRY JENNINGS AND HE TAUGHT ME THE CODE AND SHOWED ME HOW TO OPERATE THE STATION THERE. CALL WAS VE6AVE. THAT STATION CONSISTED OF A HT-37 XMTR, A HQ-180 RCVR AND A TA-33 JR ANTENNA. GREAT STATION FOR A BEGINNER.

I BECAME LICENSED IN 1971 AS VE6AUP AND WORKED MAINLY 15 AND 20 METERS.

USED A 1/4 WAVE VERTICAL WITH 4 RADIALS AT 35 FEET. MY STATION WAS A FL / FR DX-400 PAIR.

I WORKED 100 PLUS COUNTRIES WITH THAT SETUP.

Equipment
RECENTLY PURCHASED A KENWOOD TS-430S XCVR AND AM WORKING TO SET UP AN ANTENNA AND COLLECT THE OTHER EQUIPMENT I WILL NEED TO ACTIVATE THE STATION.

Other Interests
REFURBISHING OLDER COMPUTERS AND LOVE TO WORK WITH ANTENNAS.
