Ham Member Lookups: 6503


Hello and thanks for stopping by!

I was first interested in ham radio in the early 60s as a 10 year old. I passed the code portion of the Novice exam but missed the written exam by 1 question. It took me 50 years to study up on that final question - hi hi. Actually, sports, school and then work took over and I finally returned to ham radio in 2012, passing theTechnician in March, General in June and Extra Class in August.

My QTH is at the South end of Fidalgo Island, in the state of Washington USA. Fidalgo Island was part of IOTA NA-065 until a few years ago when RSGB reviewed out IOTA status and found that we do not meet the 200 meter seperation from their mainland critieria. We are US Islands WA-002S.

Above is the view to the East from South Fidalgo Island.

The station is currently a 'starter' station consisting of a Kenwood TS-480HX feeding a QSO King end-fed wire antenna at 35'. I also have a Yaseu VX-8 HT for VHF, UHF and an Alinco DX-SR8 as a backup HF rig.

A few photos of the "kids" -

That's Sam in the foreground and Maggie trying to blend in with the bushes behind Sam.

Rhodesian Ridgebacks doing what they do best - rest. And yes, we bought the sofa to match - good camouflage. Tilly on left, Jake on right. Both unfortunately are Silent Key now.

I prefer to QSL via LOTW but will QSL via the BURO or direct.

73 and hope to hear you on air. - Dan
