***From 1/3/2013 through 2/1/2013 I operated K7FLI/5 from EL29kn outside of Houston, Texas. I was "Hotel Room Portable" with my FT-857 and a Yo-Yo-Tenna strung up in my hotel room. I will QSLonly via LOTW and eQSL for contacts during this period. Thanks!***

I have always been interested in radio communications, having gotten my first CB when I was in middle school and my first scanner while in junior high. Life tended to get in the way though, and it wasn't until 2002 that I finally got my Technician license, though it took too many years since then for me to really get active in the hobby. I upgraded to General in November 2010, and upgraded to Extra one year (to the day!) later in November 2011.

I was initially licensed in Nevada as KD7QYE, but that call proved to be a challenge, as I always had to emphasize that it was "QYE" not "QIE" (say it out loud-you'll see what I mean!). So I went looking for a vanity call that fit, and as a pilot I was hoping for something that ended with "FLY." There was none to be had, so I picked the closest thing, and that is how I ended up with K7FLI. I became pretty attached to that call, but with my DXing and contesting activities, eventually a shorter call was needed. Im happy to report that on 12/24/13, the FCC granted me KM7N!

My shack consists of the following equipment:

Icom IC-707;

Yaesu FT-857;

Alinco ALR-22T with an MFJ 1278B TNC for my APRS digi/iGATE (KM7N-5);

GE Monogram 16-channel VHF radio running 40 watts for my backup 2 Meter rig;

Yaesu FT-1900R for 2M Mobile;

Baofeng UV-5R for portable 2M/70cm use;

**New Addition** Icom ID-31A for DStar use

Radio Shack HTX-202/TinyTrak3+ for a portable/mobile APRS tracker


My "permanently installed" antennas include:

Hy-Gain AV-12AVQ Triband Vertical (ground mounted)

G5RV (Inverted V) at 20 feet

End-Fed Multiband Dipole at 20 feet

Dual Band Roll-Up J-Pole at 10 feet

2M Roll-up J-Pole at 15 feet (for APRS digi/iGate and packet)


My "Portable" station is an FT-817 and the following antennas:

MP-1 Super Antenna

My interests include digital modes (especially JT65 and PSK31), DX, NTS, Awards/Contesting, APRS, and Echolink. I am also an ARRL-VEC Volunteer Examiner.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the hams who have been the most influential in my amateur radio "career":

Lloyd-KC5FM (General encouragement and support)

Tom-K7VOA (Station setup and antennas)

Greg-KC5ZGG and Bill-KC7ZZ (NTS and EMCOMM Mentors)

Mike-W0MRZ and Chuck-W6ZX (Award-chasing Mentors)

Jim-WB7B (DXing Mentor)

Your insight, advice, help and generosity have encouraged me and helped me to grow as an amateur radio operator. THANK YOU ALL!


I upload 100% of my QSOs to LOTW and eQSL, and I will respond to 100% of the cards I receive via the same method (no SASE required for direct QSLs- If you spring for the postage to get it to me, the very least I can do is spring for the postage to return a card to you!). I appreciate all the QSOs!
