Did you work me Portable Check out my Portable operations if so. My HAM Shack in a box
Originally licensed in 2001 I did some VEC work and upgraded to General in 2008 so that I could help with testing exams and move into HF. Later in 2009 passed my Extra. When I am not on the radio I work in the computer security world. (Firewalls, network architecture, data center physical security, vpn, penetration and auditing) other free time you will find me tinkering with everything, I have a '78 F250 that I love to keep running. I am also a SCUBA diver in the pacific northwest. My Shack doubles as my pinball arcade, I am a avid pinball repair guy, and have notable titles such as Twilight Zone and Banzai Run. We also like to camp as a family in a trailer that I rebuilt.
How I got started in HAM
A neighbor of mine was big into boat anchor radios and lent me a TS-520S, as I struggled to figure out a tube radio I made a few phone contacts in the area and northwest, then figured out how to hook it up to the computer to run Digital modes (my real love) I'm not much of a talker but I can type all day. I really enjoy using Ham Radio Deluxe's DM780 to do my work in.
You will find me mostly on 40/20 lurking around call frequency's running any digital mode I see as well as working FeildHell. (FH member#2442) I enjoy contesting and working DX cluster spots.
I dont think there is a digital mode that I havent worked so if your interested or have questions drop me a line I can help out some how. (seriously, the only mode I havent had a QSO with I think is ROS and have no care for that one, oh and FAX but hey who keeps a 286 with expensive DOS software around for that mode?!)
Primary rig is a IC-7600 with a IC-PW1. I have a Force12 C3 at 50ft and 20m/40m home made fan di-pole at 45ft (orentation E/W) or my home made 80m loop at 45ft. Using HRD/DM 6 Also see tower project page.
I also run on Packet Network 105 (Net105) with a IC751A and an AEA-PK900 TNC which is cross linked to VHF with a Kenwood TR9130 on 145.050, (K7EK runs a telnet link to local VHF-Packet) it is on air almost 24/7. I love getting mail! Please send me mail K7MHI-1. K7MHI-7 is my Gateway Node. I also have a few other TNC including AGWPE on the air ocasionally with BPQ for fun and learning as well as WinLink Mail.I have other TNC for 232 and Kantronics and some AEA.
Additional digital is EchoLink Node on simplex that I normally set where I need it for my operations into local repeaters or other testing (K7MHI-R).
Backup and Camping Portable rig is a IC-7000 with IT-100 Tuner and whatever antenna I happen to be running, if you see me /P etc. with my laptop. I use a Rigblaster PnP on the IC-7000 I Have a military surplus tower I use to put dipole or longwires at 40ft. Working on a lightweight beam for this setup.
v/uHF operations with a GP15, or dual band beam at 30ft with rotator.
APRS ocassionaly with a TINY-TNC
I have also created a outdated and no longer supported windows 7 gadget that you might find helpfull its the HamRadio Gadget for propigation and sun spot information
I am very active in public service monitoring.
