I joined the group last week. I have been messing around with Ham Radio for only a few years. I have had an interest in electricity and then electronics since my teens. The first kit I built was a multimeter. I can't remember if it was a heathkit or a radio shack, but I used it for years.
I operated a CB radio when you had to have a license to be on the air. I spent a short time in the late 80's building computers.
In my last job, a co-worker was a ham. We talked about "it" at work, and I borrowed a book from him about getting into ham radio. Well, you know the rest.
I like building kits and projects. I like figuring things out. When I found a 4sqrp page about a get together at Branson for QRP and people built projects for their radios, I was hooked. The other thing that did it was my love for trout fishing on the Taneycomo.
Well, thanks for reading,
