MY RADIO YAESU FTDX-5000D

 

 

 

From 3800' Elevation in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Amador County, California. We are located in Pioneer which is small town located between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe.

 

 

 

  • I was first licensed as WB6RFI,a Novice Class amateur on September 28th 1976, Mike Wheeler WA6NRH (now W1VI) gave me the test. My first QSO was on October 19th 1976 with WA6QEE Kevin in Rohnerville California. Report was 579 both ways. It took sometime to get a FCC license sent to you in those days.
  • I upgraded to Technician class on February 25th 1977 at the FCC office at 555 Battery Street in San Francisco.
  • I upgraded to General Class on October 26th 1977 and passed the 13 words per minute code test at the FCC office in San Francisco.
  • I upgraded to Advanced Class on January 23ed 1980 at the FCC office in San Francisco.
  • I upgraded to Extra Class on December 5th 2009 at a Granite Bay, California .VEC session.

 

I received my new vanity call sign WK6RF on May 4th 2010.

 

I have confirmed 277 Countries DXing, Have a DXCC and WAS Awards, Member of ARRL, The Northern California DX Club, The Mother Lode DX & Contest Club, and The Amador County Amateur Radio Club. I also enjoyed providing phone patch traffic for Antarctica and the Pacific Maritime Net.

 

In the late 1970's Ron Brown WA6WIY, Mike Wheeler WA6NRH, Lew Barnard WA6ESA and my self-WB6RFI installed the first 146.835 2 meter repeater on Mt. Zion. We started the first Amateur radio club in Amador County. The Amador County Amateur Radio Club. Ron was the President and I was the Vice President. The club supported the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CDF) (now CalFire) Volunteer In Prevention (VIP) program here in Amador County.

 

Retired Communications Professional.

I am also licensed as FOØKW in French Polynesia (Tahiti) I have operated from the islands of Tahiti, Moorea, & Bora Bora. 1979, 1981, 1984, & 1990. using a Kenwood TS440SAT and a dipole Antenna. Renee and I met many of the local Amateurs in French Polynesia and of course our friends, FO8DF Jean Parker, and FO8GW Wilber Trafton, which are now both silent keys. French Polynesia and its people hold a special place in our hearts. It’s truly a paradise we will never forget.

 

 

 

 

 

The love of my life, my wife Renee, of over 40 years, is also licensed as a Extra Class Amateur as of 9-18-10 with her current call sign K6REK. The other member of our family is Roxie who goes everywhere with us. Her call sign should be W6WOOF. She is a Norwich Terrier. The best dog in the whole world!

 

We also enjoy Fly Fishing, RVing, Traveling, and Camping.

I am also a member of the ARRL and the North West County Cousins #1639.

 

Our current station is a Yaesu FTDX5000D using a 4-element tri-band yagi on an 80 foot crank up tower. We also have a Yaesu FT-897D for 6 meters, 2 meters and 70 centimeters for multi mode operation. Also active on PK31 & EchoLink using Ham Radio Deluxe.

 

Our mobile station in the pickup truck is a Yaesu FT-857D and Hustler antenna for HF operations and Larsen roof mount antennas for 2 meters and 70 centimeter operations.

Our other mobile is a Kenwood TM-D700 dual band 2 meter / 70 centimeter radio using a Larsen antenna.

 

We hope to hear you on the bands.

73’s

Warren, Renee & Roxie ☺WK6RF, K6REK & W6WOOF
