K6P

Go by nickname "Rick".

If you are in the area, give me a call on the146.730- Repeater (pl 88.5).

I have been licensed for Amateur Radio for 25 years. Have held Novice, Technician, General, and now Extra Class tickets. Am also an VE (ARRL Volunteer Examiner). Hold Commercial NARTE Master Technician certificate with Land Mobile, Broadcast AM and Broadcast FM endorsements.

Like many others, I got intersted in CB radio. Especially Santa Monica REACT (KFR9525 and KIK0588). Then a true Southern Gentleman from South Carolina, Otice "Red" Gallman KF6D (SK) introduced me to "ham" radio. He helped me buy my first radio, a Yaesu 101EX. Later I transfered to San Jose where I was involved in Santa Clara Valley REACT. When I transferred to Sonoma County, Gary Jackman [KF6JF/ W6GWJ (SK)] tormented me daily until I took and passed my Novice test. Later got my Technician license, then gave up HF while raising our son, who played soccer from age 4 to age 18, when he was invited to try out for the Mens Olympic Developement Team. Meanwhile, I concentrated on VHF/UHF Public Service.

Retired after 37 years with a major Telecom as a Senior Communications Technician and Toll/Special Service Data/Voice Transmissionman (Los Angeles, Santa Monica, San Jose, Marin County, Sonoma County), Digital Transport (Sonoma County), and Commercial Radio and Television (San Francisco Television and Radio Operating Center [TVOC], and San Ramon Corporate HQ).

I enjoy HF,VHF,UHF modes including ATV (Amateur Television) [was ATV Unit Leader-CDF/VIP, and ATV Specialist RACES and Sonoma County Department of Emergency Services (DES/ACS)]. I am WAC, DXCC (244+), WAS (phone/digital), etc......

STATION: I currently use a Kenwood TS-2000 100W on 6 through 40M, on a STEPPIR 3 ELE 30/40,up 35 feet,and a 80 M Dipole,on a MA-40 foot tower. Sometimes I turn on the loaned Yaesu 2000B when I want 500 watts out.

I like both ragchew, and am just getting my feet wet in DX contesting.

My primary interest has always been emergency communications. I have been a member of Gardena Police Department CB Monitor, Santa Monica REACT, Santa Clara Valley REACT, Sonoma County RACES(Radio Amateur Cival Emergency Service), Cailfornia Department of Forest and Fire Prevention/Volunteer in Prevention (VIP), Pacific Telephone "SHARES", Pacific Bell National Security and Emergency Preparedness (NSEP)/North Coast EOC Director, and, currently Sonoma County Department of Fire and Emergency Services/ACS (Currently South Sonoma County Unit Asst. Unit Ldr.), and NOAA SKYWARN Spotter (SO#49).

I am second generation HAM. My dad Carl K6CMS was trained as a radioman in the Army and sent to Korea in 1947. When he got out, he too worked for the Telephone Company from Craft to District Level Technical Engineer. My wife Kathy worked for the Company 40 years, and retired as a Communications Technician.She is licensed as K6KBS. We enjoy doing public service events using 2M together.

Son is a Captain, US Army, Inactive Reserve. Completed his active service, including deployment to Afghanistan.(No interest in radios, except to call in air strikes, drat!)

Grandson, who is 18 months old over Christmas, came to visit us, and took great delight at HIS first radio, a FRS HT. He enjoyed hearing grandpa's voice from the other room! Hope for the future?!
