Carl "Marty" Rose
Bencher Skyhawk antenna
My middle name is Martin and you may hear me on the bands calling myself Marty
Retired (March 2011) IT support specialist, one of several careers in my lifetime.
Home station includes an Icom 765, Icom 7600, Dentron MLA 2500 amp, a Henry 3KD Premier amp formerly belonging to my good friend K8CD who became a silent key (2010), Bencher Skyhawk tri-monobander for 10-15-20 meters up at 65 feet, a 4BTV vertical tuned for 40 meters, and dipole fed with twin-lead for other bands at 60 feet. Tuner is Palstar AT2K and primary mics are Heil iC, Behringer xm8500 and Heil Heritage. I use both the Bencher and K8RA paddles for CW. I use the Henry amp occasionally to honor my old friend, K8CD and to keep his electrons in the ionosphere.
Avid skier and motorcyclist for several decades. I also enjoy amateur photography and I combine my photo and car hobbies on many occasions. Formerly WD8DNG and KM8R. Trustee of the Oakland DX club and it's callsign is my old call, KM8R. Retired (2005) member of the National Ski Patrol at Alpine Valley Ski Area (SE Michigan) after 15 years of service. DXCC with 332 countries confirmed. Applying for Honor Roll in May of 2016. Work primarily 10-160 meters, phone and CW on low bands, and VHF on 2 meter FM. Have been a ham since 1976.
My granddaughter and me on my old Harley-Davidson Superglide is a 1982 model that I bought new in 1983 and still ride occasionally.
My 1961 Volvo PV544
I'm an old time hot-rodder and my current toy car is the pictured 1961 Volvo PV544 with a B-20 engine that I take to car shows and cruise the neighborhood ice cream parlors. This car is similar to the one my wife and I dated in around 1962.
My previous hotrod was a much-treasured Ford Ranger Boss 302 V8 (about 350 HP) pictured below . One very quick, sweet sounding pickup truck. I owned it for 11 years terrorized Woodward Ave. with it on some nights.
