I grew up in but moved just outside of
I'm a retired Fire Chief and 1st Responder having served 19 years on the department prior to moving to the country.
I became a Licensed Novice back in April of 91, then moved right up to a Technician the following month. After a few years went by I decided to check out this stuff they called HF. I got my General July of 07 "and got hooked" and wanted more! I then took the last step and moved up to an Extra October 8th, 2009.
I am also an accredited American Radio Relay League VE.
The photo is a picture of me on a trip that I took with one of my sons to
I have three boys and at this time have talked two of them in to getting their license Joshua (KD0IJX) has his General and Jacob (KD0WOA) has his Technician license. My wife (N0YIE, also good in QRZ) also holds a Technician license. I currently have three Grandchildren!
My new interest is APRS. I've been having a lot of fun with that. Look me up on http://aprs.fi/ some time (NXØP-9) we're really finding the importance of running APRS during storm watch.
I really enjoy the band openings both on 146.520 and 10m. I am also a 10-10 Member (#75077) and also a member of the Omiss (#6001).
In the shack I’m running a Kenwood TS-2000 (Barefoot) on a Buckmaster Antenna (OCF) and a couple of Diamond antennas. One is a Diamond DPGH62 for 6m and the other is a Diamond X500 for 2m and 70cm.
I look forward to talking to any and all amateurs on HF and those that are just passing through using local repeaters. I usually listen in on the local 444.975 repeater (100.0 hertz) and also 146.52 simplex.
I also run a personal repeater on 146.685/146.085 - 446.600/441.600. Feel free to use it if you're in the area!
I'd like to thank my Elmer (WDØAKX) for all his time and patience!
Check out his website!
Also listen for his 10m beacon on 28.223.50
