Good day everyone!
I am happy to join ARPOC, and quite excited to have found it! I am unlikely to be able to often transmit from an IOTA or SOTA site, but I think it is important to promote and encourage operating away from a fixed shack; it is useful and fun! ?.or so I imagine, as I am still fixed to my shack. I am currently running a Yaesu FT-450D (which I love!) through a homebrew 40m dipole at 30 feet elevation, and having good success in my little over a year as a licenced amateur radio operator. Yes, still a greenhorn!
However, this Christmas (only way to ?sell? the expense!) Santa is kindly bringing me a MTR-3B, the matching end-feed 40/30/20m antenna, and a ZM-2 AMU! So excited ? come on Christmas! But it does give me enough time to finish learning morse code.
I look forward to engaging with fellow enthusiasts, and hope to hear you on the air.
