Ham Member Lookups: 1232

 

I've been messsing around with electronics for about as long as I can remember, and would often wait and look around in Radio Shack while my parents were shopping when I was younger. At one point, a few books there on ham radio caught my eye, but learning morse code seemed too difficult at the time. In August 2009, something got me looking at the hobby again, and I passed all 3 license exams in one session. Since then, I've managed to pick up code with not nearly as much effort as I'd imagined it would take years ago.

I work on generators in the Baltimore/DC area for a living -- anything from small (to me) 25 kW residential sets to multi-megawatt setups in datacenters, as well as UPS systems and switchgear. The territory I cover gives me plenty of time for mobile repeater ragchewing, but my work schedule tends to leave me without the time or energy to get on HF. I tend to enjoy tinkering with things -- I've designed several VHF+ antennas, including a simple 2m/70cm beam with a common feedpoint for both bands.

My home station consists solely of a TS-830S with a simple line-out audio amplifier, built from junkbox parts, added in. Unfortunately, I still haven't gotten around to setting up a proper sound card interface. My antenna is a 20m and 40m fan dipole strung between two trees about 15m up. I'm also looking at installing a FT-857D in my work truck.
