Managed by AE0GL
|QTH:||St. Anthony Village, MN|
I was first licensed in Detroit, Michigan when I was 12 years old as KN8APF and subsequently as K8APF and later WB8CMY and VE3DNK.
I've been away from amateur radio for about 35 years and recently decided to get back into it. I received my Amateur Extra class license in May 2019 as AE0GL and have been slowly finding my way back into a hobby that's much different (and more exciting) than the way I remember it!
I'm having fun playing with digital modes and building antennas and I am trying to get back into CW again, but it's a slow process!
Please be patient while I figure out all the details of QSL cards and other 21st century ham etiquette. I believe that I am now handling eQSL and LoTW correctly. My apologies to anyone who missed a confirmation while I got them set up.
I use an ICOM 7300 transceiver, which I like very much.
My signal's a little weak because I'm currently using rather simple antennas. I have a 6 meter dipole oriented to favor E/W in my attic at about 25' and for 40/20/15/10 meters I use a hybrid trap/fan dipole at about 20' oriented to radiate NE/SW.
I also have an attic mounted discone that I use for VHF/UHF monitoring and spectrum analysis with various SDRs including an SDRPlay Rsp2 and an RTL-SDR dongle.
Some of my many other interests include microcontroller HW and SW, fiction, bicycling, DADGAD guitar, Anglo concertina and cooking.
Hope to run in to you soon!
