Hello everyone!

In case you're wondering, my user name is also my surname! It's an old English name from the 11th century. Rare now but still around. Anyway I hope we get lots of activity! I'm into lots of things, ham radio, sports cars (see "about me" in my profile) computers and tech (studied electronics in college and worked as a tech) and researching unusual things of all kinds. If it's weird and not many know about it I'm probably interested in it. Or I will be when I discover it.

Welcome to the forum Barefoot!

That is quite an interesting surname for sure! I'm a little into technology as well (I've always wanted to explore ham radio but never really got the chance to actually try) but more in the software aspect. Researching unusual things is fun!

Hope you enjoy the forum!

Ham radio is easier to get into than ever before. No Morse code requirement anymore and there are numerous study guides and practice tests online. I've been a ham for 28 years and got my Amateur Extra license 26 years ago. Back then it wasn't as easy. I live alone and it gives me a way to socialize.

Hi Barefoot, I guess me and you, we've been "knowing" each other for quite some years now.  Welcome abroad. Sorry for not responding much to you as I have very personal stuff to deal with now and then.
