The shack photo goes back about five years. I have sold off a lot of those rigs but did just recently build another Elecraft K1 which is my main Qrp rig. I got in on the ground floor at Elecraft and built K2 # 250 and K1 #117. Both were sold but some day I'm sure I'll acquire another K2. I probably like building gear more than operating but do get a lot of satisfaction in making the occasional CW contact. I've been licensed since 1977--original novice call was WD8AFP, then KB8EJJ, KF8KL, and now K8LD. My FIST number is 7613. That's about it. 73 de Mark--K8LD--
