Hi everyone:  I have been a ham since 1951, about 67 years or so.  I have an Extra Class Ticket.  It has always been my most favorite hobby. 
My Dad was a ham in 1926 with a license from the Federal Radio Commission days (before there was an FCC). 
I love going to hamfests but I always hear little voices from the various tables saying: "Buy me! Buy me!" so I am often compelled
to get something I didn't want and take it home and put it on the shelf.  Hope to meet you on the air sometime soon.  73, Marvin W4UXJ

Hello Everyone.

Checking out Groups.io as an alternative to Yahoo.

I got my Basic licensed in May 2003 then got my Basic with Honors shortly afterwards when the Morse Code requirement was dropped.  I got my Advanced license in November 2013.

My activity is mainly VHF/UHF and APRS.  Trying to get my HF setup but hasn't been easy due to living in a high-rise apartment building.  Also thinking about getting into some of the digital radios.  Recently acquired a D-Star mobile which is waiting for time to install.

Currently I am a forklift operator in a busy frozen vegetable processing and packaging facility. (Great job on the nice hot summer days)

It's a little tight on the Raspberry Pi 7" touch screen but is usable.  Using it on a larger screen should be more comfortable.

Re: Introduce Yourself

 

Hi all,

I have always been interested in radio as a kid, but never got around to getting my license. I liked radio so much, I made it part of my profession. I became a chemist (for GE) doing nuclear magnetic resonance. NMR uses precision RF transmitters and highly sensitive receivers to measure extremely weak resonance signals from matter. It turns out that most everything will absorb and re-emit RF energy if it is in a high enough magnetic field. At GE, I used NMR to study structure and dynamics of macromolecular systems and their components. I retired last year and still live in upstate NY.

I finally got around to getting my amateur license in 2011. I mostly enjoy digital modes and really like the software-end of things.

Hi Mike,

One thing you might be interested in knowing is that groups.io was started by someone that was intimately familiar with the inner workings of one of the sites that became Yahoo Groups, and saw the need for an alternative that was more user friendly than what Yahoo Groups has become.

And for the rest; I've been licensed since 1991, hopefully will get my Extra by the end of June. Main interests are anything digital.
