First licensed in 1978 and have loved the hobby ever since. Like most hams I have owned and operated my fair share of
radios and amplifiers, and always trying to build that better antenna.
Other ham radio operators in the family
include my brother, Dan, KA1CIV, son Chris, KA1OWL, and grandson, Mike, KB1QXM.
Main operating radio is Yaesu FTDX 5000D, SDR Flex Radio, Yeasu FT 1000 Mark 5 MP, Kenwood TS 2000.
The Flex is best for the pan adapter, once you get use to seeing the pan, its hard to use other radios with out a pan adapter,
it feels like your missing a large portion of your radio. The Kenwood and Yaesu are modified for ESSB. The Yaesu
FTDX is using the LP-Pan and HRD when operating, I just had to have the pan adapter..........
