MY name is Kevin LoBianco i am 52 years old and i have been a ham op for 40 years this July.I received my novice ticket back in July of 1976 at the ripe old age of 13.I am an avid dx hound (i adhere to the dx code of conduct) and a contester.I am married to my lovely wife Helen(who is a sheriff in cook county,yep i ask if i can buy gear.HI),We have 3 children Jonathan 19 Andrew,16.and Danielle 10,Danielle is my only hope of passing on our great hobby to any of my kids.She likes listening to her dad talk around the world and enjoys Kids Day.Yep she is the talker,i fire up the rig and let her go at it.I have collected many rigs over the years and enjoy operating them all,although my rigs of choice right now are two Yaesu FTDX3000s hooked to a Henry 3K Classic X MKII and a Henry 2KD . I just added a third rig in the shack and of course its a Yaesu,hi.....The third rig is a FTDX1200....I am semi retired and am enjoying life at the moment......
