My legal name is William, but my parents called me Mark. Retired,I have M.S. and am living with it comfortably. My QTH is El Cajon,Calif. [home of Jimmie Johnson-#48-Nascar 5 Time Champion]. The altitude here is approx 2000 feet, and I presently use a TH7DX at 70' and a 7 el10M Quad at 55',a 5el6M Quad at 30',and a 133' 80M Doublet,6M5/8wave vertical. My radios are [Terrys] ADI-AR146 2M, Icom IC737-AT and Yaesu Ft-950 [new] HF radios. My wife Terry is also interested in our hobby and plans to have her license soon. She has already found an addiction to building wire antennas with our 2 Moxon antennas so far,on 10M and 6 M.
Terry does more than simply support my Ham Radio Hobby, She is actively pursueing the logging of all my past DX Contacts that I have recieved cards for from Via Buro. She also is my fabrication and building partner,and is becomming a damned fine groundman,for those times I simply MUST climb. And Today,2/2/13 Terry Passed Her Tech Exam ! ! ! ! Her new call is KK6CDG !!!And another Update !2/16/13 Terry just Passed her General test and now holds a General Class license!!
Below we see Kevin Gaudette and Juergen Laser helping place the re-built TH7DX on the Mast in my elevator.
Please remember to listen for, and work, the H44 IOTA DXPedition now ongoing in the Soloman Islands Chain. Heres the Website.
And ,this is a Major Shout-out to Ron Rosson Jr. KF5JRA ,without whose help, my digital modes would still be non-existant. Using todays Technology,and Team Viewer software, he was able to massage and manipulate my software and LOTW into useable formats. Thanks Ron !!!!
