Miscellaneous Information

I was first licensed in 1969 and been primarily interested in construction and CW operating. Have taken part in numerous NFDs and operated in both HF and VHF contests. My recent operating has been largely QRP CW (100 DXCC on 40m) with small garden antennas; it can be done by understanding how propagation works and that is my main driving force.
