Gettin' my Ham on
I've had my amateur radio license since 1991 (or 1990, I can't remember for sure). I haven't been active since...well....that's been a long time as well. I think the last time I was active was when we lived in Indiana. It has to be at least 8 years ago. I've recently got a station put back together. I made a 2m/440 J-Pole out of aluminum, ordered a Windom wire antenna, and a bunch of coax. The first HF rig will be a FT-897 I bought off of eBay. I picked up a keyer from eBay as well. eBay is like the modern day hamfest that runs EVERY DAY. I like it a lot.
