I work in broadcasting, producing nationally syndicated radio shows. I also do voiceover work for television & radio stations around the world. We love to travel, love the outdoors and obviously enjoy Amateur Radio, (ALL MODES). Running a YAESU FT2000D with dipoles on 160-10. I also have a Cushcraft R-5 vertical and a Titan DX about 2 feet off the ground. At the shack in Maryland (My parents house) I use an old Yaesu FT101E with an FL-2100B amp. After 30 years in the air, I just took the TH6DXX down (2006), so until I get the TH6 up and running again, dipoles will have to do. For mobile operation we use a Yaesu FT-857D with a Little Tarheel II. My favorite band is 30 meters. For portable operation: IC-7000 with a Super Antenna or a Dipole. Less is always better to pack. My Son Zach is also a ham, his call is KB3RHU.
Previous calls include WB3FLN, AK3L and VP2EBZ November 2005 on the Island of Anguilla. With the exception of some grounding issues, it was a blast. If your going to take the rig on a trip, bring some extra cables and plugs. Also some ground wire. Grounding was the biggest problem.
Other hobbies include snow skiing, biking, motorcycles/dirt bikes, photography, roller blading.
Thanks for checking out my bio, hope to work you on the bands.
