My name is Ken and I’ve been licensed as AC4RD since 1992. For a year before that, I was licensed as KD4EIP, as a Tech-Plus through Advanced.
I’m not very active in general—-I’ll play with the radio for a few months, then spend another year playing with other hobbies (guitars, photography) before I take the radio back up for a while.

I mostly like a bit of DXing on 20 through 10 meters. Around 225 countries worked so far, all with low power and simple wire antennas. On CW it's 150, 100 on digital. I"m not much on chat or casual discussion, and I'm almost never found on local FM repeaters.
I commute a half-hour each way and like working from the car-- almost all phone though I do have a few countries on 20m CW worked from the car.
I enjoy working the occasional contest--those are always good chances to pick up a new country or two, and they can be a bunch of fun. Mostly CW & RTTY for contesting.
I do upload contact data to Logbook of the World (LOTW) on the same "occasional" basis as my operating. And if you want a QSL direct, just let me know—you do not need to send a SASE.
I like working HF from my back yard, too. Homebrew paddles for the yard: http://people.duke.edu/~kuzen001/mousetrap3.html ... and the text here is way out of date but it's still fun: http://people.duke.edu/~kuzen001/lawnmower.htm
My mailing address is "good in the book" (meaning, the callbook address for me is correct, so you can get it on QRZ or other sources.)
