My name is Kris Davis and I am less than two years from retiring!!!! The only reason I mention that is because getting my HAM license is getting me just one step closer to accomplishing my retirement dream of travelling to different countries on my own boat (47 foot Nordhavn). I discovered that one of the most important pieces of equipment when traveling blue water is a good working communications system for staying in touch with the world and receiving daily weather updates. I read that the General class license was the one to have for maritime use so I studied and took my Technician and General exams the same day. I was planning on just getting a handheld and dabbling with my local neighbors via repeaters but one thing led to another and I ended up putting a couple antennae on my roof and my man cave quickly transformed to my Ham Shack!!!!! My base station is a Kenwood TS 2000 with a multi-band Comet CHA-250 Vertical and a multi-band Comet GP-3 vertical for VHF/UHF. I upgraded my license to Extra on September 13, 2014!

I installed a US Tower TX-455 foot crank up tower in my backyard and just finished installing a Hy-Gain TH-11DX Multi band antenna.  Above that is a Cushcraft XM-240 a two element 40 Meter antenna.  What a definite improvement on my DX capabilities!!!  C-Pix below of Tower and Antennae installation...special thanks to K6FG and N6UOZ, without their assistance and inspiration this project would not have been possible!!!

I love to camp, fish, hunt, and scuba dive. I have 3 children from a prior marriage and my wife Sandy has two from a prior marriage. They have all moved out so we have the house to ourselves!!!! We are very active at our church, Shepherd of the Hills in Porter Ranch.  I hope the next two years fly by so I can start living my dream!!! Hoping for the best. In the mean time, I'll catch you on the air!!!

Kris
