You be too danged far away! If you ever get South of Springfield give me a shout and we'll meet up. The Prez of our Ham radio club lives in Lees Summit. He is a communications engineer for the MO HP up there
I must have mis copied, OM. I came up with WA0YGH and that call is not in QRZ

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
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 results
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
