Ham Member Lookups: 4016

 

 

"America's quiet warriors are the legion of ham radio operators, 700,000 of them, who are always at ready for backup duty in emergencies – amateur, unpaid, uncelebrated, civilian radio operators, during and after floods and fires and tornadoes. After the 9/11 attacks, hams were indispensable in reuniting friends and families. Most recently it was they who expedited the search for debris after the Columbia Explosion , and right now, at this moment, they are involved in homeland security to a greater degree than you would want me to make public."



Paul HarveyNews and Comment, ABC Radio, March 19, 2003

I got my introduction to Amateur Radio back in 1959, when I was ushered into a small room in the back of the house filled with all sorts of radios that glowed in the dark. How I miss the smell of tubes and iron transformers, just memories of the past. I strayed off course a bit by going to CB, however back in the early 60’s it was sounded somewhat more professional, and then took another turn long enough to get my commercial licenses to work in radio. Since 1971, I have been licensed first as WN1ONF, WA1ONF and now K1MF and have enjoyed every minute and every aspect of ham radio. It’s in my blood forever and they will have to pry the microphone out of my cold dead hands in the end. My current job is in Radar, FAA, military and commercial, and we also dabble in the antenna design field. We run from DC to light and have no preferences as to which band, or mode I operate, all is enjoyable.

Enjoy the hobby, learn as much as you can and remember to share with others, teach them about the hobby and pass along your knowledge that you have gained over the years. I am thankful for all of my mentors, both young and old. To all my mentors: “ Thank you for helping me learn, thank you for your patience, and thank you for educating me”.

Nothing like fine looking women, hot cars, cigars, JD overthe rocks,and a fantastic band opening to make a great day, of course not necessarily in the indicated order above.

Regards;

K1MF

Favorite Quote………!

There is nothing like getting excited about a really cool thing a company has proposed and they subtly take it away - sure as the day someone you trusted told you that there was no Santa Claus - the joy within disappears into thin air like a dog's urine on the pavement of a hot and sunny summer day...!”
