Operating from shack in Salem, Oregon
My name is Terry Brown. I have been a ham since 1982. I was an SSB operator until 2008. I then went QRT for 7 years because SSB grew stale for me for a variety of reasons. With the help of four ham friends, I dusted off my old CW starting at 10 wpm and over the next 3 years increased my CW speed, with the help of the CWOps CW Academy, up to the present level where CW operation is a real joy.
Below are some details about my Amateur Radio activities over the years.
