Back into HAM Radio & having fun after several years inactive (early 90's to 2004). From my first ticket (Technician) issued 30 Nov 1984, all I ever did was 2m FM. I upgraded to General in November 2007 & got on HF phone for the first time in December 2008.
I'm not into contests, field days, going for certificates like WAS, WAZ, DXCC, etc., or calling CQ though I sometimes answer CQ's. I do like checking into various nets (I'm now net control for the CARA 2m net) & I've enjoyed contacting various Special Event Stations. Much of my interest is in the public service & emergency service area.
As for the photo, I'm also a member of the 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry, Company E (a Civil War re-enactment group).
