I originally got my amateur radio license in 1992. My first call sign was KD6PHA. It was a no-code technician license, so I only had access to 50Mhz+. Two meters was the main band in my area, since most of the 440 repeaters were closed systems. I was active on a few repeaters and had a lot of fun. Then in 1997, I joined the navy.
While in the navy, I wasn’t very active in ham radio. I met another operator on my first ship, and got a little more interest in it. That’s when I got my vanity call, N6CTM. N for navy and CTM for Cryptologic Technician Maintennce, which was my rate.
Fast forward to 2004, and I got out of the navy. I began getting active on 2m again and went and got my General license around 2005 or so, just before they got rid of the code requirement.
This past January (2013), I finaly upgraded to extra and got the sequential call AG6RN. I'm happy with this call and don't plan on changing it.
Localy you can usualy find me on 444.475 KO6KD repeater, or the North Hills RC 145.19 repeater. I'm almost always mobile when I'm on, and I listen to 146.52 fairly regulary as well.
My main activity right now is SOTA, and I've been enjoying the outdoors and mountain topping with an FT-817ND and a TH-F6A HT.
In the mobile I have a 2m/440 TM-V71a, and a TK-981 for 900 Mhz. I also have a TS-50 with matching tuner that I move in and out of the truck.
I'm just starting out on CW as well, so if you hear me out there, go easy on me!
