I just signed up to this forum. I'm not a 1010 member yet. I'm just trying to see how active this group is first. I have a lot of things to sign up for, local club, ARRL, local RACES/CERT, etc. but I have very very little personal time. I tried getting on the daily net this morning and I barely heard KC8IM and he acknowledged my call sign but then I couldn't hear anything after that. I have an old Heathkit SS-9000 with the matching PS-9000 power supply and a Heathkit SA-2060 antenna tunner that my Father just gave me. I'm using a poorly constructed dipole that's taped to my wall yet I've been able to make contacts as far as Minnesota on 10 meters with the power dialed down considering I'm so close to the antenna.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to everyone and I'll see where this goes.
