My Ham Radio Interests
i have relocated to Clayton, NC and love it here, where amateur Radio is alive and well here not like Connecticut. the home of the infamous ARRL where ham radio is pretty much DEAD......
I enjoy echolink and have a node that is on mostly on weekends at 145.75 with a PL of 100 node number 57414..
also enjoy PSK,RTTY and other digital modes, not much into contesting and everyone lying about being a 59 when there a 2 by 2 ...hate the ARRL but love ham radio..
My station is because of the generosity of Paul KA1LB who is a wonderful friend and brother in Christ

at home a yaesu 897,8900 and a 1900r...a rigblaster NOMIC interface and in HPC note book computer
MFJ versa tuner, LDG AT-897 tuner..which sucks..
in the car a 8900 and a 857 and a mfj moble great
MFJ equipment works great for me!

Other Interests
.. Quartet Gospel music,country/Blue Grass music
Bible Studies......
hiking,fishing and boating ..and ARRL bashing

no clubs as of work schedule don't allow it

why be connected and not answer

Im an avid user of echo link and IRLP i have been most frustrated and disgusted with people who are connected to a node or confrence room but are so cold that they cant answer or even acknowlege you , im not talking about reflectors being connected or stations as a "L" link people who are connected but dont talk...especally on the confrence room SCARS or the New England reflector...why be connected and not talk or acknowledge some one..i know some folks just listen...well then be listed as listining only...Amature Radio has become a very cold lonley place wityh no one who likes to chat any more....maybe the Government needs to take some frequencies....why have them ?? no ones using them.....and maybe it would wake up the cold calasosed amature radio comunity...
with disgust and frustration ..a ragchewer with no one to chat with..john
