QSL image for KK2Z

My name is Kirk (KK2Z...formerly W5KMK...initially KE5RFM).

I am active in the Brazos Valley Amateur Radio Club (BVARC), Houston QRP (H-QRP) club, and the Emergency Management Radio Operator's Group (EMROG) in Fort Bend County, TX -- southwest of Houston.

Yes, I am one of the no-code amateur operators. But, I am working on increasing my code speed so I'm one of the ones that actually can (and does) operate CW.

I use an ICOM 7000 with a HiQ 3/80 antenna as my main operating position in my Honda Pilot. The picture above includes a shot with a Honda generator used to drive an SB200 amplifier during the 2010 Texas QSO Party. Pete KD5QPX, Jerod W5JMK, and I operated mobile in 30 counties for the weekend and had an absolute blast. We only covered 725 miles...a little less than the 800 planned...when we cut the corner off our loop to get back home before midnight.

Due to deed restrictions, I have used portable antennas mostly, but use an NVIS 80m dipole to add to my 2m/440 ground plane (not visible from the front yard). I use my FT-817 portable on digital modes when we're cruising (so far, in the Carribean and North Sea), and am working on building a couple of QRP radios (a rockmite and softrock) to try on the next outing.
