                                 Amateur Radio a wonderful hobby

When I was first licensed as a Novice and could only work CW, I spend hours copying code and working live QSO's on the air.  My very first call was KA5ZRG.  My first upgrade was to Tech. however I did not work a lot of two meters. I continued studying and practicing code. Once I made 13 wpm and passed the written test for General I found DXing and the love of SSB. From General, I next went to Advanced and enjoyed more of the band. I maintained KA5ZRG until my final upgrade to Extra Class and changed my call to AA5IH.  I was AA5IH until January of 2009 when I came out of a time that I was inactive.  The vanity call I applied for was, "AA5LA" ,  I kept AA5LA until March 10, 2012 and I was granted "WM5H".  I felt like it would be a better call for contesting.  Looks like I am now back to the basics a working alot of CW chasing dx.  Probably 70% of my contacts are CW now.

    

At the present time the antenna I have in the air is a 6 Element Yagi for 6 Meters.  I am getting ready for the June VHF Contest. I now have a 51 foot crankup self standing tower with the 6 Meter on it and I have 35 foot of the Rohn 45 Tower up and getting ready to install Guy post and cables and then go on up to 75 feet.

  

On the Rohn 45 I will have a 20 Meter OWA 5 elements at 85 feet, a 15 Meter OWA at 65 feet 5 elements, and a 6 element 10 Meter OWA at 35 feet.
