Hello all, de KC5EAF.  QTH = Newton, Kansas.  I work mostly QRP CW.  I have been a fan of Art of Manliness for a few years but just found this group this evening.

Welcome, Robert!

I can certainly empathize - I don't get on the air much at all, but I sure am glad that I have the station set up and the license available. Every once in a while, my cousin will let me know that he and a friend are having a QSO, and I'll plug the rig in, connect the antenna, and join in. It's been a while though. The station used to be completely solar powered, but when we put an addition on the house, the panels came down and I never got around to putting them back up - even though I had the new roof specifically set up for the wiring and the panels. Too many other projects seemed to get in the way.

Again, welcome, sir!

Hello all. KA7YTK here in Bremerton, WA. I received my novice license back in high school then joined the Army for 26 years or so. I never got on the air as once as a HAM operator during that time and now that I'm retired I'm looking at rekindling my interest. Starting with my code speed and looking for a place to test.

Welcome, TrekkinDave! I don't get on the air a whole lot, but it would be a real pleasure to chat with a fellow-AoM member!

Welcome, Stephen Charles Bond! I keep trying to find the time to get back into it, and I've made a few attempts. I got my Advanced Class license in the 1980's and decided that I like the idea of having a license class that is no longer available, so I have no plans to upgrade to Extra.

I would like to get back into HF digital, and got what I ought to need, but just haven't spent the time to figure out how to make it all work together.

Hello, gentlemen; KC9SYZ checking in. My interest in the hobby was rekindled two years ago at a Field Day set up by a local radio club. Studied hard, and passed the Tech and General licenses in one sitting; less than six months later, sat and passed the Extra exam. Was certified by the ARRL as a VE, and got involved with the club. Organized the my club's FD for this year and had an exhausting, but wonderful time! Great hobby that is also a service to our neighbors. Working just 2m/70cm now, but figuring out a way to get an HF antenna up in a small, narrow lot with power lines on two sides of it! See you on the air, gents! 73 de KC9SYZ

DIY Projects/Hobbies

Hey gents,I'm taking an electronics class in school, and I've found it pretty interesting, mostly for doing hobbies as opposed to doing it for a career of any sort. Anybody on here familiar with any projects they've enjoyed doing, or sites they might know about for these types of hobbies? Thanks.See More
