Hello everyone I'm Mike KC5YWN I'm from Adona Arkansas about 55 miles NW of Little Rock. The Co is Perry Co. and our seat is Perryville. I got into the ham hobby way back in 1997 as a tech and then later went on and got my General in 2008. I love learning more and more about the hobby and now at press time studying for my upgrade for my Extra soon My Father and sister are the only 2 hams in the family my Dad is an Extra and sister is a tech. For me it was a work in progress to get up and going to get the upgrades and make things work out.
I have a Kenwood TS-450S 100 watts of power ,I run a dipole that I've got in an inverted V conf and its's about 45 ft in the air. And I run on the side to hear locals an 899 vertical that's about 60 ft in the air. it works for me on 10,12,15,17 mt. I've worked alot of great stations from over seas and down south in the Islands.Do work some on Echolink from time to time but love checking into the local 2 mt nets and try to stay involved in our local Club the Arkansas Diamond radio club, and our local Co is getting together to get a club RACES for this area going.
Some things I've almost completed are my WAS on 6 mt. Like 2 states and ill have it done.Hawaiia and Alaska.And now our club host a simplex net local at 8pm Central time on 146.510 and host a local net on 145.450 that's on Thurs nights. The Perry Co group has a net that is on the 1st Tues of each month to get interest in our Co and hams informed My 2 mt radio is a Yaesu FT- 2800M I have it in my truck now but use it as a base unit as well. The HF nets are a fun way to meet and keep up with everyone around Thanks for stopping by my page all the best of 73's look forward to hearing everyone on the bands.
