LIVE from the RAZORBACK PUB...(aka.. my deck)

Malcolm Scott McCay (Scotty)


Upon retirement I began to refresh my interest in communications, an interest I started back in my early days of tv and Radio Repair.

 Got my Technician and General tickets on 5/28/16.

On June 25th/16 I went back and passed my Extra Class Exam. In March 2017 I became certified as an  ARRL VE. (Now W5YI VE as well)

I run an Icom 7100 all mode radio via a 1258MkII Remote Rig ( Transmitter/Tuner in my shop and Control Head in my Home office) via Wifi connected to a G5RV Inverted V. I also have a TYT MD380 vhf  and Baofeng handheld for Local repeater use. Hoping to eventually get a uhf DMR Repeater in this area.

5/30/17... Added a TYT 7800 dual band mobile to my stash. installed in a custom made console for my GMC. ( see pic below)

I am now venturing off into the digital world with a Shark Openspot. I am using my IC-7100 for Dstar connections and a TYT MD 380 UHF for DMR. Thanks to all who have helped me get this figured out.

Our Local Amatuer club, N5SEA Southeast Amatuer Radio Club runs several repeaters, both uhf and vhf.

I also do wood carving in my spare time (images of some of my work at bottom). Its a fun, but very time consuming hobby. It will definitely teach you patience!


Hope to run across some of you along the way and share information.

Scotty McCay, AB5SM
