In the photo above (2012), I'm busy copying CW - my favorite mode. All the ham gear and even the lamp is now powered by a battery charged by solar panels.  

First licensed in 1978, I operated for nearly twenty years, then went QRT in 1997 or so for about ten years.  In 2007, I visited a local field day event, got excited about ham radio all over again, and started this website.  At that time, I  I was just listening on the HF bands while I improved my CW copying skills. My antenna was miserable: a random wire, poorly matched and grounded, so my signal sounded QRP at QRO power. At that time, we were at a fairly low point in the 11 year sunspot cycle, so mostly all I could do was listen.

Time flies and I'm still mostly listening, but I am operating more.  The antenna is a little better, and I am venturing into aspects of ham radio I've neglected in the past, such as digital modes and mobile and portable operation.  Use it or lose it, they say, so I must get back to doing more CW if I ever want to get my proficiency back to where it was years ago.  Like so many others who have websites, I've neglected to keep this one as up-to-date as it could be. The log pages are definitely out of date.  I need to take more pictures.  But I really need to spend less time on the computer and more time on the radio.  

The latest (2018):
I have been renewing some of my web skills and have experimented with a new website design for Humboldt Amateur Radio Club.  As of March, 2018, the club has approved Carl(KM6LIQ)'s design here: humboldt-arc.org, but I still have my design here: humsites.com/harc as a part of my own website, and welcome comments (use the contact form on that website to make comments).

See you on the bands.

73,
