My introduction (NW7US) ...
« on: July 04, 2013, 05:00:19 PM »

Hey, folks.  Great to be a part of this forum.

I was first licensed in 1990.  Before that (since early 1970s) I was a shortwave radio listener and began studying Morse code and electronics.  I was in the Unites States Army Signal Corps., and finally after that, got my license.

I enjoy many aspects of the radio communications hobby, including Morse code operation, and, I like using digital modes like JT65A and Olivia. I am also a heliophile. That simply means that I study space weather and the Sun. I count sunspots, X-ray flares, and other space weather phenomenon.

I am a contributing editor for three magazines. I write about space weather and radio propagation for "CQ Communications Magazine", "CQ VHF Magazine", and "Popular Communications Magazine". Once and a while, I write about propagation and other radio-related topics in "Monitoring Times" or other publications, and some of my writing appear in books. I also run several websites.

I live in Omaha, Nebraska.

Hope to see you on the bands.  I look forward to a QSO.  And, of course, interacting here on the forums.

Cheers....
