Thank you for visiting my page!

Please call me Rob (Not Myrl).


I received my Technician class and General Class license July, 2011 and received my Extra class license September, 2011.

I recently replaced the Yaesu FT-950 with an IC-7300. Wow, what a difference in sensitivity and filtering!  I typically run 100 watts out to a 43' vertical S9V or an Alpha Delta DXCC-LB+ dipole at 42 ft.  I can run up to 600 watts with an ALS-600

Working barefoot (100 watts) I received:

  • DXCC Dec.2012
  • WAS in January 2013  
  • Triple Play Award (TPA) #992 in 2014

With the help of a wonderful and quite patient Ham - W8KJ - I have been learning CW and learning the challenges and rewards of working QRP. It's been fun and by the grace of God, I hope to have many more years ahead.

I stay busy and have a lot of fun as:
  • Vice President of the Butler County Amateur Radio Association (BCARA) which supports the Butler County Ohio Health Department in HAMilton, Ohio
  • Director with Queen City Emergency Net (QCEN) - supporting emergency communication needs of the Cincinnati-Dayton Chapter of the American Red Cross. The Greater Cincinnati-Dayton Region serves 36-counties in Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana.
     
  • Member of Scioto Valley Amateur Radio Club, Pike County ARES, Butler County ARES and Ohio ARES-MAT
     

​NAQCC - 6133,  OMISS - 8019,  SKCC - 9539  Feld Hell -  3928​​​

 

I support the DX Code of Conduct

come in

I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot.
I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before I call.
I will always send my full call sign.
I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously.
I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine.
I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine.
I will not transmit when the DX station requests geographic areas other than mine.
When the DX operator calls me, I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly.
I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact.
I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
