A Little About Me: Originally licensed as a No-Code Tech in 1994- upgraded to General in 2017 and passed my Extra in 2019- N1SFE is my original call from 1994. In the 90's and early 2000's, I was very active on the VHF and UHF bands, but interest wanted in the later part of the decade and I wasn't on the air much, but still made sure to renew my license.

I was bitten by the bug again in 2017, when I regained an interest in AM DXing (which always fascinated me when I was younger) and realized that I didn't have any decent receivers. When I started searching for a good receiver, many of them were also HF transceivers, so I decided to study and upgrade to General- which I passed in Sept, 2017. Once I made my first HF contact, I was hooked, and then upgraded to Extra in June, 2018.

Currently, I'm on the air on 40-20-17-15 meters using 2 homebrew dipoles. I'm also frequently on the local 220 mHz repeaters from the mobile. I love building antennas, and am always tweaking for the best performance (aren't we all?) I was able to get my mixed DXCC and WAS awards in March, 2019. I'm amazed what "100 Watts and a Wire" will do!

I do enjoy the occasional ragchew and working DX, and love collecting paper QSL cards, as well as confirming QSO's on QRZ and Logbook of the world. I upload contacts to LOTW daily. If you send me a card, I will reply 100%! If you send a card from within the US- no need for a SASE- I will send one back. I generally upload my logs to LOTW and QRZ on a daily basis, and update Clublog a couple of times a month.

I'm occasionally active on the local FM repeaters- see the list below for the VHF/UHF repeaters that I can often be found on.
