My legal name is William, but my parents called me Mark. Retired,I have Multiple Sclerosis and am living with it comfortably. My QTH is El Cajon,Calif.� My wife Terry is also interested in our hobby and is now licensed as K6TRY. 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 ! And another Update ! 2/16/13 Terry just Passed her General test!! and on 6/15/13 Passed her Extra Test successfully !! Her entry into the 2 meter potion of our hobby was graced by her homebrew� CopperCactus J-Pole antenna we built. Home Depot Hams,Yes We Are!!
The final note on the 4 month odyssey of Terrys accomplishments as a new ham is her vanity callsign that arrived as a one day late birthday gift-K6TRY. Next she'll want a ride on the International Space Station. Fine Business, Terry. I'm Proud of Ya !!
The altitude here is approx 2000 feet, and we presently use a TH7DX at 70' and a 7 el-10M Quad at 55',various wire antennas,a 5el-6M Quad at 30',and our Copper Cactus J-Poles for 2M/440. My radios are [Terrys Kenwood G707,Yaesu FT60r,] Yaesu 7900,Icom IC737-AT and Yaesu Ft-950 [new] HF radios.
Below we see Kevin Gaudette[R] and Juergen Laser [L]helping place the re-built TH7DX on the mast in my elevator.
And ,this is a Major Shout-out to Ron Rosson Sr.-N6XT and Ron Rosson Jr. KF5JRA ,without whose help, my digital modes would still be non-existant. Using todays Technology,and Team Viewer software, they were able to massage and manipulate my software and LotW into useable formats. Thanks Rons !!!!
