Ham Member Lookups: 4158

 

At the age of 10 or 11 my cousin Art wanted me to become a Ham. I was not interested in doing this; he did become one his call is W8PBO. I led a very active life up until 1999 when Agent Orange and Muscular Dystrophy hit me hard. I am now wheelchair bound. I still enjoy life and try to stay very active. I stayed active in many organizations for the handicapped. Then the Ham bug hit me. I got my Tech license March of 2005. I joined the Williamsburg Area Amateur Radio Club and started doing all their special events and got hooked on HF. Two good friends Bill NR4C and Mark N1LO would take me to Yorktown beach and we would set-up different antennas and talk to the world portable. Due to my limited movement and feeling in my hands I knew I could not pass the general test because of the code. Then the FCC dropped the CODE. One month later I passed my General license and now I am a HF HAM. I now pass my days talking HF using a TS-570/590 in the house. I want to thank Dave W9NNK(SK), John K6OWD for making and putting up my antenna a Zepp at my condo. I QSL 100% and I call myself "The Wheelchair Mobile". I heard about this group of Hams called the "Green Frogs" they meet on 3947 every morning at 0500 until 0800. So I joined then BOY what a time I have been having. One thing that is missing in Ham Radio is Young People. We need to do something to show the young people out there that Ham Radio is exciting.
