American Legion Arick Lore Post 274 Lusby, MD

I am planning a joint venture on July 16,2016 to Apple Orchard Mountain, VA to work the Golden Packet Appalachain Trail Event.  We will help establish an APRS  message link from Georgia to Maine and back on 144.34.  This occurs on Saturday midday.  Then we, Eric WG3K  and Steve  N3IPN and myself will work VHF and HF for SOTA, activating  W4V/RA-001  for a few hours.  We will be set up along the Appalachian Trail, so we will work AT contacts also.  Will work contacts as long as batteries last then close up ops.  I plan to work 20 meter PSK31, Eric wants to work the VHFDX contest, Steve will work 20, 40 voice and PSK31.  Hope to work you on this interesting adventure.

Running a Yeasu FT450AT to a G5RV about 100' up in the trees.Sometimes on my Buddipole with the long mast I purchased at Hamvention 2016. Plan to do some offgrid work while camping. Just started working digital FSK with Digipan 2.0and FLDigi with a HP 2000 laptop. Expect to take my rig on the road and use a Buddipole while RV camping. I use an Kenwood 710G VHF/UHF FM tranceiver with a Diamond HP770HB antenna mounted on the rear door of the Roadtrek. Usually run APRS when traveling, follow me on KB3RAN-9 on aprs.fi    Enjoy photography, travel, sailing, gardening. June 2016 passed Amateur Extra and plan to keep my CW ready callsign. 

Currently working on making my ham shack totally off the grid 24/7 with a solar panel and wind generator making the power.  Currently operating HF radio totally on battery.  Recently got a Yaesu FT817ND, hooked up to a Alpha Coax Magnetic Loop Antenna for a lightweight portable 5 watt station.  Have a 40 watt solar flexible panel to power this rig.

Will also be making my ham shack portable/mobile in my Roadtrek motorhome. I am a member of ARRL, Board Member of Calvert Amateur Radio Association, Vice President of Drum Point Radio Club and am active with ARES and RACES. PODXS 070 Club # 1692.   EPC # 25194   Joined Radio Amateurs of Canada since I spend so much time on summer vacations there.  TALARC (The American Legion Amateur Radio Club)

More boring stuff: Served in the Marine Corps from '61 through '66, first in Drum and Bugle Corps then as a radio repairman (HF/VHF/Microwave). Left Marines and worked for IBM as customer engineer on mainframe computers (System 360 and 370) at places like NSA Fort Meade and NASA Goddard Space Center, MD. Was at GSFC when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon!! What a great night that was. Got tired of the Beltway and went to forestry school. Worked for Weyerhaeuser Co and Corps of Engineers in AR before moving back east to DE and got a nursing degree. Worked in Med/Surg nursing for 17 years til I retired in '07. Somewhere along the way I joined the AF Reserves and put in another 20 years and retired as MSGT in '03. Now I'm having fun camping in my Roadtrek Class B motorhome. Spend a couple months in FL or warm places in winter and head to Maine or Nova Scotia or places cool in summer.

Hope to chat with you on PSK31. I plan to hang out on 20 meters a lot. If you need Calvert County or Maryland, email me for a sked. I'll try to help you out.

The pictures of my QSL card:  My Roadtrek 190 Popular RV and the Drum Point Lighthouse at Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons Island, MD a few miles from my house.  The Maryland Dove is a replica of the ship that first carried settlers to Maryland. I volunteer as crew on this ship, helping to keep her presentable to the public.
