Thanks for coming to my page. I've been into radio for many years. It has always been a passion of mine since I first was introduced to the hobby as a young child. I built my first radio when I was about 10 years old. When I was 12, I built an antenna for my bike so I could use my CB while riding around. I also started a CB club in my home state of Arizona when I was 14. I would hold a nightly Net on channel 18. The club was called the “Arizona Air Jammers”. We had strict rules, no cussing, arguing, or being nasty. It worked, but times were different on CB back then. At the peak of the club we had about 100 members. Since most of the club interactions were over the air, people were surprised when we had our first meeting and learned I was 14. They learned this when I asked for a ride to my own event...

My current job is being a Maintenance Officer in the Air Force/Tennessee Air National Guard in Memphis, Tennessee. We currently operate the C-17 Cargo Aircraft. I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work for three presidents since being in Memphis, including our current President. I’ve been in the military since 1992. I first started in the Marines and moved over to the Air Force after my tour was complete.

                                         

 

I’ve also had the distinct please to deploy with some of the finest members of the Armed Services. In a recent deployment I was the Operations Officer over three countries in the AOR, Oman, Qatar and Afghanistan.

Operation ENDURING FREEDOM

Joint Task Force, HORN OF AFRICA

Exercise EAGER LION

 

 

I belong to the Olive Branch Amateur Radio Club in my hometown of Olive Branch, Mississippi.

Home antenna systems. 40 foot (12.19 meters) tower with 10 foot pipe. Diamond X50A for 2M. 80 meter horizontal quad loop (268 feet). 6 meter inverted V. More to come as I continue to build.

Radio, Yaesu 2900 for 2-meter and a Baofeng UV-5r for 440. My HF rig is a Yaesu FT-950 and an ICOM IC-718. For some extra kick I use an AL-811 AMP with the AT-1000 Autotuner. Also use a FT-840 for mobile and camping with a Z-100 tuner.

My oldest Son Andrew has his license also (KF5WNQ). I guess he got the bug from me...

If we talked and I called W5SMB/Portable, I was most likely camping. I love to take the HF camping. I use a FT-840 with a Z-100 Plus tuner attached to an 80 meter dipole.
 
 
We're a Jeep Family all the way...
