Ron Wright, N9EE, has been licensed since 1966 (Novice), General in 1967 & Extra (20wpm code) 1969, N9EE vanity call 1977. First Phone early 70s. Sept 69 to March 72 US Army, 18 months in Vietnam (I just wanted to go home) . With GI Bill got my BS in Electrical Engineering from Tennessee Technology University, Class of 1975. In late 60s enjoyed 40m rag chew with the Tennesse Teenage Net, a bunch of young Hams having fun on 40 m phone. The good ole days.
My early days of Ham Radio was in HF (few 2m repeaters then) on SSB rag chewing and CW with lots of activity with CW traffic nets. The rigs now are as shown in the picture, ICOM IC7410 & IC718 and Yeasu FT1000, D-Star ID800 and a number of VHF and UHF FM rigs, some Ham, some commercial.
Ron is the owner of Micro Computer Concepts which manufactures repeaters and repeater controllers. Information on the products are at the web site http://www.mccrpt.com
For more info call Ron at 352-683-4476 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ron is the owner of the Tampa Bay, Florida, 146.64 repeater. It is the highest repeater in the Tampa Bay area with antenna at 1100 ft HAAT. No CTCSS (PL or tone) is needed. Repeater is Motorola MSR2000, WACOM WP681 duplexers, 1300 ft 1-5/8" feedline and Telewave ANT150F2 Super Station Master antenna. All are welcome.
Whenever server weather occurs or the NWS in Ruskin, FL, sends out an alert for Tampa Bay SkyWarn nets are activated on the 146.64 repeater. The 146.640 repeater is the SkyWarn repeater for Pasco Co, FL, but due to the wide area coverage often SkyWarn is activated for any Tampa Bay area county. We always want to help the local communities with SkyWarn and other server activity operations.
I encourage all to get their SkyWarn certification by taking the 2 hour Basic Skywarn Course. Also get involved with your local ARES and EOC. After all this is the reason Hams have more frequencies 2nd only to the Military.
Also get a SAME weather receiver and program for your county. This can be a life saver.
