Hello I am located in Oak Grove, MO which is about 30 miles east of Kanas City, MO. I live on 40 acres in Jackson County. My grid is em29wc and my 10-10 #61176. I was first licensed in 1972 as a novice and my call was KA0ARI. I re-licensed in 1983 as a Tech+. I struggled to get my General class because of the code requirement, but I continued until I was successful. I soon afterwards got my Advanced class license. I am recently a new member (#36329) of the QCWA.org and part of the chapter #35.
I am an active member of a couple of fellowship nets.ASCRA Association of Saints Church Radio Amateurs meets every Sunday on 7.190 at 2:30 CT and on 14.287 at 3:30 CT. This is a fellowship net of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints headquartered in Independence, MO. ASCRA.org.
I am also a member of the Hams for Christ net which meets on 7.263 every Monday - Saturday at 3:00 - 3:30 CT depending on foriegn broadcast stations. hamsforchrist.net
Presently I am using a Yaesu FT-897D as my primary all-mode all band radio for VHF and UHF. I have the battery option for the radio so I can also use it portable or in power out situations. I just recently purchased an older Yaesu FT-990 and looking forward to getting it on the air and making it my primary HF radio. I use an older Kenwood TM-721A dualband for 144 and 440 FM in the shack. I just purchased a Yeasu FT-8900 quadband for my mobile use. I am using a Comet SBB-15 high gain triband for the 70cm, 2 meter and 6 meter portion and I use a single band 10 meter quarterwave for the 10 meter portion.
For my 144 and 440 FM use I have a Cushcraft AR-270B up about 30 feet which allows me to talk to most repeaters within 150 miles. For 50 144 or 440 SSB I use loops antennas. I will be putting back up my M2 2M12 12 element 2 meter SSB yagis. For HF I am presently using a Alpha Delta DXCC 10-80 parallel dipole. I am also working on getting up a 280.5 foot loop antenna for HF.
