Begali Traveler Paddles. I purchased these paddles after receiving my DXCC Challenge award. I'm hoping to do some in-the-field CW in the coming seasons.

Elecraft KX2 Transceiver The smaller cousin to the KX3 is perfect for remote operation. I've already begun using this as my go-to radio for work on Lovells and Georges Islands in Boston Harbor.

Elecraft KX3 The KX3 has been a workhorse for me doing QRP and 100 watt operations. I've used it for chasing DX at home, and being DX on the Boston Harbor Islands. It is a solid, surprisingly full-featured radio in a very compact package.

Begali Sculpture Paddles. June 2009. These paddles were a gift from Sandy. Amazing, I know! Now I've got a very strong incentive to get my paddling skills up to snuff.
