Default Welcome Clarence!

Welcome aboard Clarence!
You'll find a great bunch of folks here on ORR. We're looking forward to your posts, questions and photos. Can you give us your call sign?
I winter in CT and summer in Freedom, NH in a park model at a camping resort called The Bluffs at Danforth Bay. I use an Yaseu FT-857D into an LDG YT-100 tuner and a G5RVjr hung in the trees. I've done the tent, pop-up and travel trailer thing so now I figured it's just time to relax. Maybe we'll talk on the radio some eavening .

73 and don't forget your &
Andy - n1ork

Again, Welcome aboard Clarence!

As Andy pointed out, we have a pretty good selection of smilies here, too.

Enjoy yourself.

Welcome to the forum.. I have been a ham since about 1868 Upgraded from Tech to General, then Extra in 2006. All done with that now.

I usually toss a 100' wire up in trees when parked, Do not do HF when driving.

You know the fun thing about Ham Radio and RV's...

I park, I toss the end of the long wire over a few trees, and then being tired from setting up I go to bed.

Get up at say oh-dark-30 (3 amp to 9 am eastern) and visit the .. Other room.. Well since I'm up I check into either the Breakfast club or Before Breakfast Club on 3973

Later in the day (After breakfast) there is the 72 Ragchew group.

And there's nearly always something on PSK-31 mode.

And.. Well, 25 hours a day you can spend on the radio (Yes, you can do 2 radios at one time)
