Ham Member Lookups: 624


My name is Richard Carlone and my QTH is Estero Florida, a small village just south of Ft. Myers FL.

Originally from Rhode Island, my wife and I moved here in 2003 and have been loving it ever since.

I have had a lifelong wish to become a licensed ham radio operator and after retiring I was determined to go for it. 

I was granted my Tech license on April 26, 2013 and upgraded to General on December 18, 2013.

My equipment consists of a Yaesu FT-450D, that I use for HF, an  Icom IC-745 (an oldie but goodie) as a spare, and a Kenwood TM 281A for VHF. 

Since I live in a deed restricted community, I set up an "antenna farm" in the attic of my garage consisting of a home built 20 meter/10 meter fan dipole, a 40 meter hamstick dipole and a home built 2 meter ground plane antenna. I recently built a 20' flagpole antenna consisting of 35' of #14 Stranded wire wrapped around the outside of the pole. A 9:1 unun and 50' of coax keeps everything running smoothly on 40 thru 10 meters.  I run no more than 100 watts on HF and minimum power on my 2 meter rig.

I am a member of the Ft. Myers Amateur Radio Club, the ARRL, and am also a member of the A.L.E.R.T./ARES group in Lee County Florida.

I have met so many fine people and am very grateful for the help and advice that I have received since joining the wonderful world of ham radio.

73 to all!
