    Hello-new member here.

    One of the main reasons I like ham radio is that it’s so many hobbies rolled into one.

    I tried packet way back when and I’ve seen people doing the digital modes at field day, but they’re not for me.

    My passion is still for good old CW ragchewing. I do like the modern technology that allows me to have a QRP station, the size of a deck of cards set up in the living room of my retirement apartment! No more going to the basement or back room.
