Welcome and thanks for visiting!

 

 

I grew up in Northeastern Ohio and went to undergraduate school at Youngstown State University, graduating in 1972 – Go Penguins!  While attending college I worked as a tech for television station WYTV. 

I am a life-long Cleveland Indians (we were so close this year!) and Cleveland Browns fan – I know – but I can’t help myself.

After college, I moved to South Florida and became interested in amateur radio after I saw a group of amateurs working communications for a local event.  In 1977, I obtained my Novice license and was issued the call WD4BDE and shortly after that I upgraded to Technician.  While living in South Florida, I was active with the Gold Coast FM Association but did very little exploring on the HF bands.

In 1999, after graduate school, my wife and I relocated to Cody, Wyoming and I upgraded to General and received the vanity call K7JEE.  We moved to Cheyenne, WY in 2002 but with work and family commitments, I was not able to spend much time on the air.  

I upgraded to Extra in July 2013 while attending HamCom Colorado in Estes Park, CO.  It was a special day in that my grandson Scott James passed his Technician test and my son Scott also upgraded to Extra.  We are now a three-generation ham family!  I asked for and received the call AJ0IM, Scott is now AD0EO and Scott James is KD0WBB and upgraded to General in June 2016.

Three generations of amateur radio operators!

After retiring from the City of Cheyenne, we moved to Loveland, CO to be closer to the kids and grandkids.

Unfortunately, we live in an HOA restricted area...however, I managed to hang a LnR Precision EF Quad under the eaves and put up a GAP Titan DX on a tilt over mount so that I can keep a 'low' profile.  

Rig is a Flex 6300 with a Maestro control unit. I also have an Elecraft KX3, with a PX3, and a KXPA100 that I use from time to time and also can pack it and take it with me when I travel.

I retired from the City of Cheyenne, Wyoming in December 2014 and we now spend much of the winter at our home in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Currently, the rig in Florida is the Elecraft KX-3 coupled to a Challenger DX vertical that is ground mounted. 

Hope to “see” you on the air waves soon!

Best 73,

Jim

SV5/AJ0IM/portable operations!

From 12 April through 19 April 2014, my wife and I vacationed in Rhodes, Greece.  I packed the 857 and a TW 2010 antenna and operated portable from Rhodes using the call SV5/AJ0IM. We also traveled to Athens, where I operated as SV1/AJ0IM.  Great fun and worked a lot of stations.
