Ham Member Lookups: 211

 

I was originally licensed, KD4KIL,  in 1992 shortly after the adoption of the no-code Technical class license.  I renewed that license once, though I really didn't use it for that second decade.  At the end of 2014 I looked into it and realized that my license had expired and I had missed the grace period for renewal.

In January 2015, I sat for the Tech and General tests and obtained my General license,  KG5FMI.  At the beginning of February, I sat for and passed the Extra exam to obtain my Extra class license, AF5WH.

My interest is in QRP operation and the construction and use of diy and kit radios and other gear.  As such I have started a class to learn morse code.  I wasn't successful when I tried in the early nineties, but hopefully I will become reasonably proficient.  At least enough so that I can enjoy operating my diy QRP gear.

I also teach classes at the Dallas Makerspace (www.dallasmakerspace.org) that are open to the public that may be of interest to HAMS in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  These include directly radio related classes such as building your own morse code transmitter (The Michigan Mighty Mite).

As well as some classes that I will start offering in early November 2017 where people build direct conversion receivers from scratch, one module at a time; audio amplifier, product detector, band pass filter, arduino dds vfo (and/or a classic ceramic resonator vxo), and finally a broadband rf amplifier front end.  These modules were designed by N6QW.

In addition to directly HAM related classes like above, I teach general electronics class like

* Introduction to LT Spice

* Introduction to KICAD

* How a dual transistor LED flashing (also know as a digital RS flip flop) circuit works

* Introduction to Oscilloscopes (with hands on lab work)

* Introduction to Multimeters and Power Supplies (with hand on lab work)

These classes are generally open to the public.  If you are interest, feel free to email me and I can provide you more information on how to sign up.
