|Born in August of 1958 in Cambria Hgts. Queens, NY. Lived there for 7 years then moved to
Lefrack City, Queens, NY. Then moved to W. 93rd Street & Columbus Ave. in Manhattan, NY.
Also lived in Manhattan Plaza with my Mother. Then moved to Midwood Brooklyn, NY for 7 years.
This is when I finally decided to get into Ham Radio. Then moved to Central Islip, LINY. Stayed there for 7 years. Then moved to Brentwood, LINY.
I have been living in South Florida since 1992. Started in Delray Beach, FL then moved to Oakland Park, FL. I was in an old Trailer Park on NE 30th Court & Dixie Hwy. Lived in the City of Fort Lauderdale for 16 years and now living in Naples, FL. since 1/09. I'm loving my privacy and not owning a House in this time and age.....LOL
My hobbies are: Bowling, Driving, Swimming, Movies, Internet Surfing & Ham Radio.
I would like to hear from my "old" Ham Radio buddies from Brentwood & Central Islip, LINY. I would like to keep in contact with them. My best friend & LI Ham Radio Buddy became a SK in 8/03. The call was K2YPT. I wish him well.
****I do not usually discuss a Ham Radio Ops here on QRZ, but when someone is selling Ham Radio Equipment, you are supposed to wait for the money first. WD8DCS/Brian from Ohio is clearly thinking that I would send him my Kenwood TS850s in the mail before his checks cleared. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Not even 1 hour before the Banks opened; Brian cancelled the checks and was pissed at me for not sending the Radio. Brian thinks that I am a Scammer. Sorry, I am doing what other people do on selling merchandise. I am just venting and hope other Hams realize the scammers out there.****
APRIL 3, 2016 = I would like to thank the following hams that helped with my antenna problems. K7DX/Mitch, KC8JCB/Larry, K4AOR/Rich, KM4QYL/Al, N4DSB/Dave.
They have done a great job in fixing my antenna issues. Dave and Larry did most of the tower work with the help of the manlift. They removed the TA-33 and placed it on two ladders to be worked on. It was decided to straighten the elements and tighten and clean some of the hardware. The other antenna that I had planned on using was a CL-36M but it was too big for my location.
Mitch came over after the antennas were back up and used his analyzer to check the SWR. The SWR was not acceptable and went up on the manlift to replace and make sure that all the hardware was tight. That made all the SWR acceptable on all the antennas.
After a short break after everyone had left, came the “on the air” tests. Contacts were made on all bands and antennas. It was a very successful “antenna party”.
I want to thank those hams that did the physical work and to those hams that provided the “do’s and don’ts information.
The pics are listed below, scroll across, thanks.
