Default Greetings from WS2L

Well most people here probably know (and hate) me from QRZ where I'm an Administrator and Editor. I'm also frequent the Island Misfits website on a daily basis.

I am 44 years old and was first licensed in 1978 as WD2AHD as a Novice class licensee. I decided to start upgrading in 1985 when a good friend got me hooked on 2 meters so I upgraded to Technician. After that I bought a Kenwood TS530SP and continued operating CW in the Novice bands and started listening to 20 phone. I quickly upgraded to General class. Then about a year later in 2 months I upgraded to Advanced then Extra. It was 2 or 3 years before I decided to change my callsign before all the 2x1 calls were gone.

I live in Montclair, NJ (FN20vt) which is in Essex County. I enjoy operating 40 and 20 meter CW and PSK31. I also operate 144 and 432 MHz Phone, CW and FM.

I have some awards, WAC, WAS and DXCC with 256 worked and 182 confirmed with the ARRL. One day I will go through the shoe box to find about another 30 or so cards I need to submit.

I belong to the Raritan Bay Radio Amateurs (RBRA) in Sayreville, NJ which operates a crossband repeater on 146.760 and 443.200 and they also have Echlink installed (Node 155581) where I monitor most of the day.

Recently my son Dave (KC2SIS) got his Tech license and is now studying for General then extra.

I guess this is more than enough, looking forward to chatting with you all.

Oh yeah I run an "Anti-Radioshack" website at: http://www.radioshacksucks.biz/forums

As a guest you can only view 4 or 5 forums, register and there are many more. We also run VBulletin and the site looks exactly like this one.

Thanks for the ID Dave.
Great to have you here. I know that you are probably busy at QRZ.com with the Admin duties there. Thanks for taking the time to drop in.

I will check out your site. I hate rat shack also. As a young lad I spent every friday night in there adding things to my wish list. Was like a child in a toy store. Now I find no reason to even bother.

Thanks again for sharing.

You live in Montclair? Wow, we need to have an eyeball QSO, OM. I sometimes am in that area. In fact my XYL used to take the train from MSU when we lived in Wayne. We live in Wantage twp now (sussex county, explains my huge signals since we live in the hills) but sometimes still pass thru or go shopping in the area.

Nice to see you here, Dave.

If you're going to be at any local 'fests let me know.
