I just started with amateur radio, and currently have my General license here in the USA. I am actively studying for my Extra, and hope to have it soon.
My station is located in Vancouver, Washington on the border of Vancouver and Battleground. I am sitting at about 370 feet in elevation with a 43′ Vertical 5 band DX Engineering antenna. When remote / camping I run a G5RV-jr.
*Upgrade – ICOM 7300, LDG, all in a Gator Case for portable (but heavy) operations. Backup rig is now the FT-450D. I also use the SignaLink for Digital, and I am very new at that.
My HT is a Yaesu VX-8DR, and I have a Wouxun KG-UV8D backup.
I belong to the ARRL and the CCARC (W7AIA). Now a member of WB7QIW Hood View Club.
I am interested in QRP, but I am enjoying the digital stuff right now.
