Ham Member Lookups: 3424

 

Thanks for looking me up. A little history. I was first licensed in 1987 as N2HTC. I've been active in a various aspects of the hobby. This marks my 23rd year as a ham. Time flies when having a good time.

Pictured here is one of my other hobbies which I've been active for over 40 years. I love to build and fly high-tech model gliders... of course on 6 meters.

My involvement in amateur radio has diminished to working 2m & 440 mhz mobile. My FT 920 radio is in a box on a shelf. My IC-706 MK II G still waits repair. There will be a time where I will become more active. Until then I keep an eye on the email reflectors and talk locally on VHF/UHF.

When the FCC & ARRL announced the vanity callsign program, I knew that if I worked for my Extra, I could obtain my grandfathers call. Well, with the help of the Morris Radio Club, I managed to pass my Extra. My 610V form was in the first day of gate 1. I'm really proud that I carry my grandfathers call. My grandfather, M. Everett Walker, was licensed and operated for over 60 years. I'm sure he is smiling, knowing that I've managed to carry on his call and his enjoyment in amateur radio. 73; Kurt Zimmerman - W2MW

Recap - 12/30/2013 - More good news.  I now have my Force 12 Sigma-5 antenna out of storage.  Has not been set up for almost 10 years.  Looking forward to getting on some of the other bands besides 30 meters.  Still going to use my Icom IC-706 MKII G for the other bands, but now that I have a multi-band antenna maybe I'll give some of the digital modes a try... who knows, maybe the FT 920 will come back on line.  Have a great New Year 2014.

 

Recap - 5/12/2013 - Some good news.... Got my ICOM IC-706 MKIIG repaired. I am back on the air but only on 30 meters CW. Using the LNR 30m end-fed dipole and have been working quite a few DX stations. It is real nice to get back on the air. Next I'll be looking to expand my band and mode capibilities by getting my Force 12 Sigma 5 out from storage. But for now, working some DX, getting better with my CW speed and having some fun.

For those DX stations reading this, please QSL direct. I have not posted any credits with the local BURO, and until I do direct is the best bet.

 

Recap - 2012/2013 - Well I'm finally on the air with a minimalist QRP station. A few years back my sweatheart got me a Vectronics VEC-1330 30m kit which I was able to assemble in just a few evenings. Fast forward about 3 years and after aquiring a LNR 30m end-fed dipole. Antenna got up during the Christmas holiday time off. I'd say it is about 30' - 35' off the ground. After plugging in the rig I was amazed to hear stations galore. Still working out details and understanding the dynamics of QRP but I do know I've been into Miami, FL and northern NY state with only 1 watt. All appears to be working well. I am tempted in getting the FT-920 out of mothballs and putting it on the air or getting the IC-706 repaired. For now all is OK with my sweatheart. The excitement is back!

 

Just a recap in 2010... still not much going on in Hamdom (still). I'm back on 2m & 440 mobile. Santa was kind to leave me a k-400 antenna mount for my car. Still have a broken IC-706 MKII g. Hopefully I'll get it repaired this year now that things are getting a bit better. Happy New Year and hope your 2010 is prosperous.
