I have been a Ham Operator since 1994. I have mostly dabbled in 2 meter, 70cm, and Packet. It wasnt until recently I got into 10 meter operations. I am a avid motorcycle rider, and love to ride whenever possible. My second love is pictured below: 1986 Suzuki Intruder VS700 cruiser.
*NOTE* I do have mailable QSL cards, and will mail one if requested. However I do prefer EQSL, LOTW or QRZ.com Logbook confirmations. Some of us are just branching out into the HF world and trying to work on some awards, so please be kind and considerate enough to confirm my QSL's so that this "newbie" can put some awards up...thank you! :)
My little shack (or corner of the house should I say) consists of an Icom IC-707 with the LDG Z-100 Plus Autotuner on a off center fed long wire dipole antenna at about 16 feet, (2) ADI AR-146 2 meter mobiles, (1) Icom 3230-H Dual band rig, (1) Radio Shack HTX-10 10 meter rig (thanks to KJ4JEK) on a vertical Starduster ground plane at 30 feet in the air. I am a ARES & RACES Memeber (24-241-H) and have all my equipment to include a simplex telephone autopatch ready to go on a generator at a moments notice.
I am a member of the local radio club W5JAS Lakes Area Amateur Radio Club, at this time I am serving as President (for a second term). Our website is www.w5jas.org. I enjoy working for the state, and serving the public in anyway that I can. I am currently employed as a Lieutenant of Correctional Officers for the state prison system. I am trained in Multiple ICS (Incident Command Systems) and EOC (Emergency Operations Center) settings and classes. As of June 27th, 2015 I have finally upgraded to General and looking forward to working some HF. Thanks for taking the time to look at my page and 73's! Happy DX'ing!
While I am at it, I want to give a shout out to my dear friend and silent key Terry "Big Man" Hashman -KB5B (SK July 3, 2011) as for without him and my friends Pat(N5TYN), Kevin(K5KEV), and John(W5JRJ), I would be missing out on the opportunity of being a HAM Operator.
