Hi, my name is Patrick (K3PTC). Back to amateur radio after about a 5 or 6 year hiatus. Took a few years off to raise my teen daughters after my XYL passed. Last one is on her way to college this fall,. Hoping to find a lot of spare time for my favorite hobbies of hiking and ham radio. Just joined SOTA this weekend after taking delivery of my new KX2! CW is RUUUSTY…listen for me on SSB for awhile.
