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.

Cheers,

Jason

Welcome to the club Jason.
I'm not likely to be activating any SOTA sights either.

Thank you both for your kind words. And I am have been browsing through the possible awards. I did laugh when I saw the ones for operating at sea....I just spent the last 15 years at sea! Now my time is a little more sporadic, but I may have a chance at bronze or higher.

I am very excited to spread the word over here to any amateur I encounter.

Cheers,

Jason
