Ham Member Lookups: 655


While growing up in Alaska we used to sit by an SW receiver and spend hours spinning the dial. I would see the Coast Guard antennas not far away and wonder who they were talking to (later learned they were Loran navigation transmitters).  

I was first licensed in October 2010, upgraded to General in September 2011. Original call KJ6LAS changed to K6IPE in December 2011.


HF = TS-590S connected to a BuddiPole (I do not have much time for HF, so all temp setup)

2m/440 base = ID-5100 (via Raspberry Pi/DV Mega Dual) and connected to a Diamond X200

2m/440 mobile = ID-5100 and Raspberry Pi/DVAP/Mifi hotspot or IC-92AD

The DVAP and Raspberry Pi makes DStar so much easier while mobile. It is very nice not having to worry about resetting a repeater back to the owner's preferred link before I travel out of range. I primarily monitor DStar (I'm usually found on Ref001c, Ref012a or Ref0030c) and the WINSYSTEM repeaters when I'm mobile.  I love the dual monitoring capability of my 92ad and 5100.

I became a HAM by accident when I literally stumbled upon one of Gordo's books and realized I already knew a majority of the material.  I have an extensive IT and ICS background, so HAM radio was a natural fit.

I am always open to words of wisdom to help me through this new hobby.  I do respond to any received emails.  I will return all received QSL requests.
