Welcome to my Ham Shack
Hello , my name is Mark Gierhart. First Licensed in 1980 under the call of KA8KUG. After a couple Call Letter changes (N8CZV & KD9ZD) in 1992 I received my Extra Class Amateur Radio License and changed call to KE8MB. In November 2011 I applied and received a Vanity Call , W8MDG (Mark David Gierhart).
My QTH is located just outside of a small Villiage called Harrod . It is about 8 miles East of Lima , Ohio in Allen County. Lima is famous for it's M1A1 Abrams Tank factory and also Hams may know Lima for Fair Radio Sales , a Military Surplus outlet.
As of this writing , I have 3 grown children and 8 grandchildren. Hobbies outside of Ham Radio - I enjoy doing Family Genealogy , Computering and building Electronic Projects.
My latest E-QSL Cards can be found posted on my W8MDG Facebook Site:
My occupation- been a Radio Broadcast Engineer for over 30 years and at present am taking care of 4 FM and 1 AM station here in the Lima Area. Interested in my Genealogy Research: http://www.watchtv.net/~markg
