I work as an Emergency Response and Planning Coordinator for an international airline company here in Kuwait, and I hold an Airline Transport Pilot License and I’m certified to fly a single and twin engine aircraft. I got educated in Kuwait and then studied aeronautical and did my pilot training in the United States and Qatar. My interest in amateur radio was awakened when I was 12 years old and my dad gifted me an 11M radio transceiver. Following that another friend (later called 9K2UP) trades me my first 2M transceiver, it was an ICOM IC-V8000. I joined Kuwait Amateur Radio Society (KARS), having gained my A class call sign, 9K2KU, I very quickly purchased my first Quad Band the Yaesu FT-8900R, Dual Band Ft-7900R, HandHeld VX-8R, Dual Band Kenwood TM-710E, Dual Band Kenwood TM-710A, Wouxun KG-UV8D, an HF MFJ-1798 10 Bander vertical antenna, a dual band vertical antenna from Nagoya, and a 2M vertical from Diamond, Comet CSB-7900 dual band mobile antenna. My few experiences on the HF bands consisted of very short QSO’s. You probably know what I mean: "You are 5 and 9 my friend. Please QSL via bureau and that would be it. Anyway the net result was that I didn’t buy an HF rig, but using the KARS one. I am also looking in the direction of mobile and air mobile HF, UHF, VHF DXing!
