I share this with you so that you can know you don't need an expensive radio, big amplifier, and huge antennas to have fun with ham radio. Both rigs I used to make these contacts were QRP rigs only capable of 5 watts. My antennas have been a wide variety including simple wire dipoles, verticals, and even my rain gutters on the 2nd story of the house. Yes, you heard me correct... my rain gutters. The only thing you need to have fun with ham radio is a good attitude and a desire to want to learn.
Tonight I completed a local QSO with Jermaine - KD9GZJ in Indianapolis. I met Jermaine a couple of weekends ago at our "Coffee & CW" event in the park. Jermaine is a perfect example of a ham that has a good attitude, loves to have fun and has a big desire to learn. I'm excited for Jermaine as he starts his own Adventure with CW. After spending 5 minutes with Jermaine, you can't help but smile. Good luck Jermaine, I know you'll have fun!
