Hello and thanks for stopping by.

Latest update: In Feb 2013 I accepted a job with US Army Europe and moved to Dauborn - Hunsfelden Germany, about 40 KM north of Frankfurt. I have been issued DA1UW, however, I do not have the station up yet.

 

 

Please don’t be shocked if I tell you my name is Dan. My parents, Bob and Bobbye decided that having an other Bob(by) in the house might be a little confusing, so they used my middle name.

New developments. In Feburary 2013 I transfered to Germany with my job and shortly after applied for my German Amateur Radio License. Today 14 June 2013 I was issued DA1UW.

After 24 years in the US Air Force I decided to call it a day. And what a great tour of duty I have had! I am a lifetime member of the Air Force Sergeant’s Association and Disabled American Veterans. My new career as a Management Consultant is just as exciting. While employed as a consultant I had the opportunity to I travel quite a bit and get to work with a lot of different Government Agencies. In May of 2010 the Army Human Resource Command (HRC) hired me to be the Chief of Manpower. Very interesting work!

Amateur Radio has been a great hobby; I have made a lot of friends and met a lot of good people since 1987 when I first received my Tech+. I enjoy studying and dabbling with antenna’s now since I am no longer able to hold a soldering iron still on smaller components. I've been an Amateur Extra since 2000, before code testing went out of vouge.

My family just relocated here in Vine Grove, Aug 2010, so getting the house in order was the top priority. During the labor day weekend I was able to take a little time to launch a 40M BiSquare in the 80' beech trees residing my my back yard. To the south there is a 60 to 70 degree slope at the base of the tree support. I am not certian how the antenna reacts to the steep ground. One thing is certain, on 75M my Texas friends here me better than when I was living in San Antonio.

I'll keep you posted as my station develops.

 

Operating habits are simple. I spent a lot of time in the Pacific as the Official Observer Coordinator (OOC), where I did a whole lot of monitoring. I still tend to monitor more that I talk on SSB. When I hear a DX station or a CQ I tend to come out of the woodwork and transmit. I monitor 2M SSB until 13oo UTC then move to 50.125. Also monitor HF depending were the signals are coming from. Of an evening here (0000 UTC) I join the 3.870 Emergency Ragchew Net.

I've had the opportunity to operate from some pretty cool places. Here are some of my previous calls: ARS:

DA1UW - Dauborn-Hunfelden Germany (2013 - Present)

KG4UW - Guantanomo Bay Cuba (2003-2004)

KH6UW - Honolulu HI (1998 - 2002)

NL7UW - Anchorage AK (1989 - 1998)

HL9JCT - Songtan City South Korea (1990)

HL9JC - Songtan City South Korea (1997)

N7KRQ - Lost Wages NV (1987 - 1989)

Have we worked before?

The picture above is from a DXpedition that I was fortunate enough to be a part of. You can read about the K3J Johnston Atoll DXpedition at http://www.qsl.net/k3j/

If you are looking me up, you've most likely just heard me... If so key up and say hello, if you got the time.

73, Dan AF5W

PS I'm now uploading 100% to LoTW and eQSL. Let me know if you need a hard copy. dit dit
