Good to see so many HAMs on here!!
I also have a Kenwood 530 hybrid. Those old boat anchors sure sound good when the tubes are humming!
I used to be fairly active on the HHH net for a little while. I think I got half of all states out if that one. I still don't have my WAS yet.
Anyone still paper log? I also use QRZ as a logbook. Was on LOTW until I let my ARRL script expire. Planning a 20 meter vertical loop before winter sets in.

Why not just get the entry level Technicians License? It's relatively easy with a little studying and very low cost. No more code requirements to get started. All the questions and answers are online for review. Even a caveman can do it. You might also learn something in the process.
