Ham Member Lookups: 6481

I was originally licsenced in Amarillo Texas when I was finishing 9th grade! My original callsign was WD5FOM. I had no HAM radio equiptment, but I had a CB radio that I was using at the time, a 23 channel xtal radio that had cost me $329 that my dad had helped me buy. Well, dad was in the Marine Corps and we soon moved to New Orleans La. I ended up working at a Radio Shack store and the owner had a back up HF rig that was a Heathkit SB-102..... this ended up being my first rig!!! for $200!!! I was still active on CB at the time while I was a Junior in High School. Well after getting the SB-102 I gave up CB and went HF. I had a 40m dipole in the backyard and Dad thought that was pretty cool. Dad retired as and Lt. Col in the Corps and was in communications. I graduated from O. Perry Walker High School in 1979. Dad retired and moved to St. Marys, Kansas. I graduated High School and went directly into the Navy. I went to ET school in Great Lakes and graduated in the top of my class. Came back to Kansas and I have been here ever since. I worked for a commercial radio business in Topeka after passing my FCC General Radio Licsence. In 1981 I was employed by KPL energy company. I was very inactive for many years. I got married to a girl from Wichita who is now N0MNG and Roves for me during VHF/UHF contests!!! Got married in 1985. Started with the first of 8 children in 1986........ well, I am at home now and my interests went back to HAM Radio! 1989 found me listening on 144.200 and worked many stations in Florida on my 10 watt Kenwood TR-9000 with an 11 element vertical polirized antenna! Several years later I realized that it was 2m e-skip that I worked and finally QSL'd that guys in Florida. Well that was my introduction to VHF weak signal. I have been there ever since. In 1997 I finished WAS on 2m after working all lower 48 states on terresrial modes and then working Alaska and Hawaii on EME! The wife agreed that if I worked that lower 48 she would permit me to go to EME for the last two... what a sweetie! I now find myself on 50, 144, 222, 432, 902, 1296, nad 2304. I will be on 2304 on the moon soon!

I am not a very good QSL'er. I do keep every QSL that I recieve on my desk and sometimes it takes me several years to answer them. If you have ever sent me a QSL and not recieved an answer please email me and I will try to get you a card.


Please send SASE as I am only one of two operators in EM19.


I hope that you have enjoyed the story of my life, and hoping for many friendly contacts in the future.

These are the antennas at home.

 

 

This is 2008 operating from the Hill location in EM19WF about 350 foot elevation advantage over the home station.

This is during the June 2008 VHF Contest.

 

 

I just got active in March 2012 on 432 EME. Here is a picture of my antenna. I am running 2 X M2 13wl and 400 watts
