Ham Member Lookups: 1362

My name is Kirk KK2Z. I have been 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. As of July 4th of 2014, my XYL and I moved to Texas Hill Country outside of Burnet (about an hour NW of Austin). I'll be attending club meetings in the area to find my new "home".

Up to now, I use an ICOM 7000 with a HiQ 3/80 antenna as my main operating position in my Ford F250. 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.

Now that I have moved to a home without antenna restrictions, plans are underway to erect a tower and move the operations inside! I will also be trying RemoteRig to allow operation with a TS-480 as the operating station in Burnet and the headset "wherever I happen to be".

73,
Kirk KK2Z
