I'm located in Great Falls, VA., a few miles West of Washington, DC, where I have a few acres and plenty of room for antennas. I have three Bencher Skyhawks, WARC band yagi and a 2-element 40m yagi stacked on a rotating tower. For 80 and 160 I use a pair of phased HyTowers.
I have enjoyed ham radio my entire life! All aspects of the hobby interest me: operating, contesting, digital modes, restoring/repairing - its all great fun and very satisfying. My early ham radio activities generated an interest in engineering and directed me to Electrical Engineering which was my career for many years.
