Ham Member Lookups: 1751


100% QSL LOTW. Please upload logs to LOTW!! I also eQSL 100%. I still haven't make QSL cards but I am planning on it as soon as I get around to it, so I won't be responding direct for a while.


Hello, thanks for viewing my page. I am a relatively new HAM, got my license on July 13, 2012 and upgraded to Extra soon after. I received this call sign (AK4XV) on Sept 09, 2012. My previous call was KK4KKH. It will probably change again when I find a suitable vanity call sign


I am currently in residency for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery @ Womack Army Medical Center,  Fort Bragg, NC so I don't get on the radui as much as I would like too but I try to atleast try to get a couple contacts a week.


Being a resident, out of necessity I have to be a minimalist when it comes to HAM radio and equipment. I purchased my IC-7000 from a fellow club member down in Fort Lauderdale, N4MB, and have never regretted it at all. It seems like the best radio for my purposes. This is my setup right now:

Home Setup


As you can see very minimal.

For an Antenna, since I know I will be moving often and enjoy field day activities I run a G5RV in an inverted-V fashion. It seems to work ok, but definitely not a pileup breaker.


For VHF I use a simple homebrew antenna that I made with some copper wire and a PL-259 plate strung up in a tree.



Until recently, I was mainly a mobile HAM operator. I used the same IC-7000 w/ a IT-100 tuner and a 102" whip antenna and no amplifier. The radio from above just slides into my truck and is ready to go. it remains mounted to the board so I can grab and go if necessary.


Looking forward to more field days, which my old club did monthly.

Davie/Cooper City Radio Club outing

I'm also starting to get into data with my signalink and D-star with the IC-92AD, and look forward to learning more.


I also like to do mission trips and hope in the future to take my radios with me, my eventual goal is to do a DX-pedition around the world by sailboat.


Thanks again for viewing my page, please contact me with any info or questions you may have.
