I was first licensed in 1989 and upgraded to advance in 2000. I primarily operate contests both CW and RTTY. I have been operating RTTY contests since 2005 and started CW contesting late 2006. I became more interested in CW and CW contesting but I had to get my code up to contest speed. I was able to get from 10 wpm to 34 in about a year with LOTS of practice. During 2007 I also was bitten with the QRP bug and operate my Elecraft KX1. (The KX1 also has been sold) Another part of the hobby I enjoy is kit building it helps with the long winter nights.
