Ham Member Lookups: 3611


Thank you for visiting my page. I received my Technician License in April of 2011 and quickly upgraded toGeneral in June 2011. I currently have an Icom IC-7200 and LDG IT-100 Auto Tuners running into a G5RV inverted "V" at 34' or a Jetstream JTV-680 vertical mounted at about 6'. For the audio, I use a Heil ProSet ic headset. I run my radio with Ham Radio Deluxe and really enjoy the combination of the IC-7200 and HRD. I use LoTW, eQSL, and will also QSL direct, no SASE needed, if I get a QSL from you, I will make sure to get one out to you as well.

I recently started working CW. This is by far the most difficult thing I have tried in ham radio, but maybe the most rewarding so far. If you hear me calling CQ on CW, PSE QRS for me as I am really working on getting up to speed on my copy skills. I am usually using my Czech Straight Key but I started off with an MFJ paddle to get my feet wet. My SKCC# is 11400.

In January of 2014, I was able to visit W1AW at the ARRL in Newington, CT. I took the tour of the facility and was impressed by how friendly everyone was. I was introduced to so many people. However, the best part of the visit was operating from the W1AW station. This was part of the 100th anniversary of the ARRL, so I was using the special call of W100AW. I had never worked a pileup from the receiving end before, but I can say that it was a lot more fun that trying to bust through a pileup. I plan to return to the ARRL as soon as possible. If you ever get the chance, it would be well worth your time to visit.

If we have made a contact, please send a QSL card to my PO box. I try to get a card out for all of my QSO's, but I may miss one from time to time. If I get a card from you, I will return the favor as well.

I am married to a wonderful woman who supports me in all of my hobbies. We have been married since 1995.

I am a United StatesAir Force vet. I was in the US Air Force from 1992 - 1995 and then in the Air National Guard from 1995 - 1999. I was a jet engine mechanic working on F-16 fighters in the Air Force and the C-130 in the ANG. I was stationed at Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, SC and spent a little time in Germany with the Air National Guard. Those were some great years in my life. Below are pictures of some of the planes that I worked on while in the military.

This is one of the F-16 jets that I worked on when I was stationed at Shaw AFB

Another great picture of a Shaw Air Force Base F-16.

After my time at Shaw AFB, I was in the KY Air National Guard, working on the engines of the C-130 shown above.
