Greetings,

 

I received my General license in April of 2011. I have enjoyed the radio hobby since I was about 8 years old when I got hooked listening to a police scanner. I have been monitoring emergeny responders and military communications most of my life.

I finally purchased a Yaesu VR-5000 and got hooked on HF monitoring. I sold that and purchased an Icom IC-R75 which I just love. Then I began to listen to amateur radio conversations and decoding PSK using Ham Radio Deluxe. I then studied and received my General License.

I love HF and it baffles on the distance a radio wave can reach with only a few watts!

I was an Avionics Guidance and Control Systems Specialist in the United States Air Force. I was stationed at Davis Monthan AFB, AZ from 1994 - 1997 and was in the 358th Fighter Squadron. I worked on the A-10 Thunderbolt II a.k.a. the Warthog. It was a fantastic airframe to work on.

On December 31, 2011, I purchased the Signalink USB from HRO and been up on the digital modes a lot since then. Recently (April 2012) began JT65.

On April 11, 2012, Art KC7GF, Kat N7AYR, and Brent KB0ZCO and I pulled down my existing G5RV antenna and replaced it with an OCF Windom antenna. My first two contacts were to LY22A (Lithuania) and John MM0BQN (Scottland). Antenna seems to be working just fine from my QTH here in the desert.

I made my first 6 meter contact on June 4, 2012 wtih WA6IOQ! The band seems to be opening up so time to get busy making Q's.

November 1, 2012 - ARRL WAS LOTW application accepted #56,784.

July 2013 - I joined up with MARAC and the rest of the county hunters. The people I have met here are really friendly and helpful. Terry WQ7A, Tim KD5CXO, and Jim KZ2P have all been prompt in returning my emails regarding information about MARAC. They make this hobby even more enjoyable! Membership #R4536.

I currently use an Icom 756 Pro III for my HF operations. It is the only rig I have. It does have a handle on it so sometimes I take it mobile! Yes a Pro III in my Jeep with a hamstick. The majority of the time I am operating from my home QTH using a homebrew OCF windom or a AV-640 vertical.

For QSL's please send to the following:

Everything is uploaded to LOTW and EQsl-AG. I will also send thru the Bureau as well. LOTW is easy so please sign up and save some postage!
