Geratol #1915;  Dir. #418    US Air Force MSgt Retired

Club: Village Seven ARC KC0RVS

I recently installed a new NA4RR Hex Beam at my home location and have been very please with the performance. Within the first few days with the new installation, I was able to work Costa Rica, Argentina (1st two contacts).  I was also able to work Italy.  I think I made a great decision.   

Married for 51+ years to my best friend. We have two grown children and four grand children.  Our daughter lives in Oklahoma and our son lives near us.  Licensed since 1991, I obtained my "5" call at Altus, Oklahoma.  I served as President of the Altus Amateur Radio Association for 4 years before relocating to Colorado Springs, in 1995.  I enjoy HF, mostly from home now that I am retired.  In Colorado Springs, I monitor 146.460 pemost of the time. I enjoy digital and over the years have been active on Packet (HF and VHF) Pactor, Gtor, RTTY, and Digital Slow Scan.  Recently, I explored PSK-31 and really enjoyed that too.  Hopefully, I can resume participation in the Geratol Net on 3.668 in the evenings this winter season.  I also established the Village Seven Amateur Radio Club in 2004.  This organization has helped many new hams with inexpensive equipment and expertise over the past few years. We meet monthly for breakfast and share information, ideas and even have a mini "Tail Gate" Session immediately following (weather permitting).  If you are interested in joining the fun and a good breakfast, check us out at http://www.v7arc.com/events.html for more information.

On August 16, 2014, our club conducted a Special Event station to honor the CVRC's Crawford House.  The Crawford House is an awsome place for displaced Veterans to come and get their lives back together.  Click this link for more information http://cvrcforvets.org.  Although the bands were not if great shape, we did manage to gather some contacts and had a great time setting and showing off our equipment and encouraging others to join the hobby.  

We have, recently, "adopted" the Banning Lewis Ranch Academy Radio Club (KD0YQE).  This is a very small group with only five this year.  The teacher - Ed, N0WGD allows us to sit in on his Technician class and then the members get on the air between   4:30 - 5:00 PM on Tuesday and Thursday.  They operate on our local talk around frequency (146.460 simplex) and on 20 meters. Our club is furnishing the books for the students and helping by answering questions in person and on the air when aked.  The club recently awarded Dave KC0HPT and myself "Honary Member" status.  We were very proud to be involved with this young, enthusastic group of young up and coming HAM operators.  One the the class passed his Technician Test in March, 2016 and was awarded the new Yaesu FT-60 radio as the first in the class to earn his license.  He is now has his General Class.  Good luck Thomas.  Our club is very proud of the work that Ed, and the students are doing.  Dave and I are looking forward to being even more active with the school club 2016..
