Smile CQ CQ all Hams...

Just wondering who else is a Ham?

I run a little Kenwood 2m rig, with cubical quad hanging from the celing in my workshop... ...someday I'll write the other tests and get on HF... ...Problem is, I like audio too much! Can't get the fidelity from SSB.

-Dan (N8XJK)

P.S. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you're probably not a ham.

I will be in Traverse City in 2 weeks. I will be on the 147.16 machine in Cadillac, then the 145.29 machine in Vanderbilt- both on the W8HVG link.

Talking No Contest!

I'm not a contester either. I like nice air-conditioned trailers isolated from the world, operating QRP-battery (5 pts/contact) as opposed to a mosquito-infested, hot, sweaty tent, banging out contacts at hi-pwr, bustin' my a$$, and only getting 1 lousy point per contact.

I also like a million stations at the FD site. That way, each station can take their time, operate a little, go goof off a little, then return and go at it fresh. As they say, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

Default Do we have UPer on the forms?

Gentleman:

You missed the earlier call for hams. This form thread "Any hams in the house"

I have operated W8YY in my early days. My mother was from Lake Lindon, and I was W8GVV in Newberry. Mostly 40 mtrs. and mostly QRP cw. College was to yeqars in the Soo and two at tech.

If this dose not make sense you are not a UPer.

Currently AA7GQ near Portland OR.

Ya, eh!

When was your thread for hams? I'v only been on the boards for a short while...

I'm a Yooper... ...born in Hancock, live in Calumet.

My father spent a few years at LSSU, and a few at MTU also, not sure of the years tho. His call is N8BFL.

I'm line of sight (30 miles) from my dad's place, so use 2M for nightly contacts.

Never really cared for CW... ...passed the code test for 5 WPM. With the new changes in lisc., I should write the other tests. Maybe this winter.

73,
Dan

It is a small world. I graduated from MTU in 57. I have spent most of my life traveling around from one job to the next.

The other ham thread in this form. page 2 of the list dated 05-19-2003. The title is "Any Hams in the House"

Just curious, what degree? I finished up a BS in electrical a few years back. Wife is a few weeks away from a masters in chem eng.

Tech has fallen on some hard times. Bad management, and a president who wants his name on too many new buildings.

I got a BS in Engineering Physics. This was before their Nuclear Engineering Program. I have spent my career in the Nuclear field doing instrumentation systems and accident analysis.

With the ham background I always wondered if I shouldn't have been a EE. I love antenna design.

How does the job market look these days?

I am told that my grandfather handed his father a lunch bucket down in the mouth of the Hackela mine when it was first opened.
