My Ham Radio Interests
I became deaf a few years ago so my phone ops have pretty much disappeared. I am trying to get into digital such as PSK31, RTTY and CW via a computer and an interface. I am currently setting up a end fed antenna since I live in a resticted area for antennas

Equipment
An old but mint Icom IC-730. All my other 2 meter stuff is packed away for now since my hearing loss prevents my using them.

Other Interests
Photography, Computers, RC airplanes

Clubs

Recently lost my hearing and thought that was the end of my Ham radio days. Folks at Signal Link told my about PSK31 and I now have a station that doesnt need sound for QSOs. Just fininshed installing a ground rod for my end fed antenna. I am using an old but cherry Icom IC-730 Xcver with the Signal Link connected to a home brew PC. I am tuning the antenna with a MFJ-904 tuner and I am using Digipan software. So far so good. I ham receiving many nice signals but I have yet to xmit since I am still learnig how to use the software. I saw Randy W7AGE tutorlials on youtube but thats the extent of it. I only saw it since I cannot hear. I think I got most of what was happening so in time I will get on the air.
Any other deaf hams out there? If so I would like to hear about your experiences and modes you are using.
