Although my given name is Martin, I have gone by Marty most of my life. I am a native Houstonian, born 1959, member of Beautiful Savior Lutheran church in Houston, married and have two children. Other hobbies include photographing abandoned highways and bridges, true stereo recordings, playing guitar and watching tv shows about UFOs and the paranormal. Some favorite TV shows are Resturant Impossible and Hotel Impossible, also How the States Got Their Shapes.

First licensed in 1989. Previous calls KB5IQO, N5OHN and AB5NN. I changed to AG5T in the vanity program. Some of my other ham radio activities are:

  • President of the Houston ECHO Society Amateur Radio Club for14 years and have organized many field day events for that group
  • Fifth Call District Director of the 3905 Century Club a great place to make contacts and meet friends. They have many interesting awards and my current antenna situation is adequate to work their nets.
  • I have 300+ dx entities confirmed. I'm about a dozen short of honor roll. The entities I still need are listed below:
    • 3Y Bouvet
    • BS7H Scarborough Reef
    • A5 Bhutan
    • A9 Bahrain
    • EP Iran
    • FT Crozet
    • FT Kergulen
    • VU4 Andamans
    • VU7 Lakshadweep
    • S2 Bangladesh
    • XX9 Macao
    • ZS8 Marion Island
    • VK0H Heard Island
    • VP8SS South Sandwich
    • XZ Myanmar
    • FG Glorioso
    • ZD9 Tristan de Cunha
    • 9N Nepal
    • P5 North Korea
    • E4 Palestine. 
  • Worked All States on 80 and 40 meters, now working on 20-15-10 to aim towards 5BWAS
  • Use LOTW, eqsl as well as qsl cards by regular mail

Current station is 80 meter dipole and 40 meter dipole. I force other bands with an MFJ tuner. Had a gemquad and tower but they were destoyed in Hurricane Ike. Hope to get a nice  mini-beam antenna back up someday when the budget will allow.

I became interested in radio from dx'ing am radio stations in the car, then shortwave, then police/fire/etc. scanners. Learned the Morse code in Boy Scouts (Eagle Scout 1974). Played a lot on CB radios in my high school days when we were all listening to Convoy by C.W. McCall.

I still enjoy listening to AM stations at night on 530-1700 and keep a log. Trying to learn more about SSS and SRS (skip patterns). FM Dxing is a bit tougher, because Houston has so many 24-hour FM stations on the dial, but I recently heard a Wisconsin station on FM through Eskip, so I am eager to hear more.

If you are in the Houston area, give me a call on 147.000 (tone 103.5) or 147.080 (no tone). ECHO meets the second Monday of the month at the American Red Cross and you are certainly welcome to attend as a visitor. Email me for details or visit the Houston ECHO Society website at www.w5eco.org.

73 and good DX
