My Ham Radio Interests
I am nuts about digital communications. I have been a ham since 1991 when I was about to go to The University of Southern Mississippi. I am married with two children and a dog. My wife has her callsign but will not admit in public. I am also the sponsor for the radio club at the school that I teach at. Their callsign is Kc5NXD. Currently I am working on my Triple Play and furthering my DXCC. If I had my choice of things to get into, it would be doing some microwave EME, but NOBODY around here does microwave.

DXCC: #41,777

W.A.S. #52,571

WAC: no number

Hi Bill,
What band/mode were you using? Looks like you have an extensive antenna farm at your QTH, I can only dream of having skyhooks like that!.. Looks almost like NSA headquaters in Ft Meade, Maryland, HI-HI.

HA LOL... that is the Antenna Farm at the ARRL where I attended the teacher institute. I only have a Hustler 6-BTV. The QSO was about 2 months ago on 20 meters on RTTY.

I saw that after posting, HI-HI.. Hustler 6-BTV, that's a vertical isn't it? I'd like to install a vertical one day, using a horizontal multiband dipole in the attic at the moment.
