Ham Member Lookups: 13057

 

I activated NPOTA NP44 at 5200 foot elevation on Hurricane Ridge, Olympic National Park, WA  on Friday, 6 May.  Thanks for all the NPOTA contacts, log was uploaded to LOTW on 10 May, 2016.  

First licensed as a Novice at age 13, I relicensed as a General in 1980 and Extra Class in 2008.  Main interests are RTTY Contesting and digital communications such as PSK31, JT65A, etc.   My plan is to relearn CW now that I have retired.

Primary station ham equipment:

  • Icom 7600
  • Icom756 PRO-3
  • Icom 7100 for portable and mobile use
  • microHAM MK2R+ that interfaces my ham computer to the two HF transceivers for SO2R operation
  • Dunestar filters and 6-Pak antenna switching
  • Two K4KIO 6-Band Hex Beams (G3TXQ design) each mounted at 36 feet
  • Two homebrew 80-10 Meter OCF wire antennas each at 45 feet
  • ground-mounted Hustler 6BTV vertical (80-40-30-20-15-10)
  • Magnetic Loop receiving antenna

For my SWL (mostly aviation) interests I monitor most aviation VHF/UHF comms in the greater Seattle area, also listen to aviation HF oceanic comms using this equipment:

  • Winradio SDR Excalibur
  • Winradio G305E
  • Icom PCR-1000
  • Icom PCR-2500
  • Homebrew Quadrifilar helix antenna for weather satellite reception
  • Flightaware Prostick USB receiver with Pi3 for ADS-B monitoring using DPD ADS-B antenna

Former pilot (Seneca III), multi-engine and instrument rated with 2200 flight hours in log book.   I have a 737 flight simulator sharing my ham shack.

Member of Radio Club of Redmond (Newsletter editor), Western Washington DX Club, ARRL.   QSL via eQSL and LOTW, paper QSL with SASE.  2016 Field Day Chairman for the Radio Club of Redmond.  

Other interests include motorcycles (Honda Goldwing 1800 trike), and flight simulation. Professionally, I recently retired as Director of Test & Repair for a major healthcare company.
