I must have mis copied, OM.  I came up with WA0YGH and that call is not in QRZ

No you did not miscopy.......WA0YGH.......That was my old call sign from back in the 80s. Had a class 3 license back when I was in the Army. My Section Sgt and CESO were both big Ham operators and had gotten me into it. Let my license go a long time ago. The internet is so much easier........and cheaper!

Dang...I just noticed I missed a dit in the CQ!

That explains it then.  Call signs drop out after 10 years or so of inactivity.

You still have any equipment?  Most of my station is from the mid 90's as I don't care for all the menu driven rigs these days.  I'm a button and knob kind of guy.

 

My best friend just gave me a 72' free standing motorized tower and some killer Yagis that I need to get in the air soon.  I live down in a valley and a vertical just don't cut it

 

I'm not very proficient on CW and don't like contests.  I hang out on 17 meters a lot to get away from all the annoying nets and garbage

KA1TTG here... been on ham radio since the late 80s. Although I haven't been very active the last few years. I'm sure there more than a couple of us... brings new meaning to QTH.

No, don't have any of my equipment anymore, cept for a CW practice rig thats around here somewhere.
Though I fell you on the button and knob rigs. Everything now is computerized and takes all the fun out of it. My Sgt would always apply for a portable license when we went overseas and we would set up our own station in country to call home with. We either had a local MARS station or we would set up another rig at our HQ with phone patch. Even had a guy in our unit whose wife had a baby while we were in Hondo. We got him hooked up with her as soon as she got back in her room.......Lots of teary eyes in the room that day.

Hiya Bob. I suspect there are several amateur operators on here.  Radio sure is a great past time, but at least with the smoking hobby we can munch on the resultsbiggrin.gif

Get back on the air before we loose this solar cycle.  Lots of great DX to be had right now

I've tapered off a bit in the last couple of years, but was very active in emergency and disaster response.  Haven't got into the storm chaser or spotter gig as I live close to 40 miles from a metro area of any size.  We sure have had some bad Tornadoes here in Missouri the last few years

The night Joplin got hit we had an EF2 hit the ridge just above the house and did a lot of damage.  The neighbor and myself were up there most of the night cutting trees out of the road and checking on folks.  Didn't even hear about Joplin until I got up the next morning. The one in Branson was a shock.  I stay as far away from that town as possible.  Every time I go through there I almost get killed by some tourist gawking and not paying attention to their driving
