CQ, CQ, CQ This is KK4LZQ calling

CQ, CQ, CQ calling CQ 2 meters. This is KK4LZQ calling. Kilo Kilo Four Lima Zulu Quebec, KK4LZQ in Indian Land calling.

…or words to that effect. I haven’t done it yet, but the first time I call CQ I’ll probably say something like that. I just got my amateur radio license from the FCC this past Thursday, and I’m still trying to figure out what to do with my new radio. I have a fear of sounding utterly stupid on my first contact, so I’m planning to listen for a few days before keying the mic for the first time..

I grew up in New England, did a short stint in the U.S. Navy after high school, worked in various factories, built & renovated houses, and finally moved to the Carolinas in 1998 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing SharePoint management site management. After work I make soap, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I ride a Yamaha V-Star 1300. I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday, or possibly do a long-distance rowing trip. I'll be retiring in a few years, and hope to run a craft soap-making business to bring in some cash.
