Ham Member Lookups: 612


Thank you for stopping by my page. You are here because we probably made contact recently. Thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit about me and my life on the radio. 

We are currently at our home QTH in Michigan.

You can also find me on Twitter @ku8kilo

QSL info:

Direct, Buro, LoTW and eQSL.

  • Direct - If you send one, I'll send one back.
  • Bureau - I'm good in the ARRL Bureau.
  • LoTW - I upload logs to LoTW regularly, and after every contest. I will upload to LoTW even if we exchanged cards.
  • Favorite - I'm still pretty new to Ham Radio so my preferred QSL is a card either direct or Buro.
  • 3905 Century Club Members, I'm good in both 40m and 80m bureaus.
  • eQSL - It's my least favorite of all the options, but I still upload logs to the service.

Our home base is Grand Blanc, Michigan but my wife Porter (K8PWP) and I often can be found traveling around the country in our 5th wheel RV. I try to set up my portable gear and broadcast as often as possible.

My interest in Amateur Radio started as a child when my Grandfather (K8YQC) would tune around the world with his Heathkit 101. It was always a goal of mine to get my Amateur License. That finally happened April of 2011, when I got my Tech. I've continued to study and punched my Extra Class ticket in January of 2013.

I have an interest in a little bit of everything regarding Ham Radio. I work some contests and DX when I get a chance. I often check into a few HF nets including Midcars, The 68 Group, The Teenagers Net, The Wolverine Net and The Century Club Net. I am also involved with Skywarn, ARES and RACES.

My gear is pretty modest. While in Michigan I run 100w from an Icom IC-707 into a G5RV. When working portable, I will again be running 100w from a Yaesu 857D into a varity of antennas including some ham sticks. In the years to come I hope to be able to add to this list, but so far this is it.

Other interests include all aspects of the outdoors. I do quite a bit of fishing, hiking, photography and traveling the country in our 5th Wheel. I have a Flickr page set up to share some of my photography, if you have an interest please feel free to check out my page http://www.flickr.com/photos/btrinkle




This is my new QSL card design from K4JSG - Mr QSO. To design this card I was able to combine two great hobbies photography and amateur radio. This is one of my photos taken of the Mackinac Bridge, which connects the upper and lower penninsulas of Michigan. The Mackinac Bridge is an iconic symbol of our state, and is one of the longest suspension bridges in the world. This picture was taken September of 2012.
