Greetings, my friends!!
I was into the 11 meter scene for many years and decided that the DX I was getting on 11 meters just wasn't good enough; I wanted to talk around the world.
So in 2010 I began studying online for my tech exam, which I passed in March of 2010. After a few months I realised that as a tech my options, not to mention my band permissions, were limited, so I began to study online for my general ticket which I passed on 15NOV2011. Update: have passed the exam for Extra Class Operator, 3MAR2014.
I began to get sick and tired of my call (KD8OAB;it's a mouthful) being screwed up on QSO, so I applied for and was granted my current vanity call, K8AEC. This is very special to me because I managed to get the first initials of my wife and my three sons as my call.
My station: Yaesu FT-450D, Shure PG58-QTR studio mic, Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer, MFJ 949C tuner, Antron99 vertical (10-20), homebrew G5RV dipole @ 30feet (10-80). Using HRD for rig control. JT65-HF and DM780 for digital. Interface is homebrew. Computer is a custom gaming rig.
