Ham Member Lookups: 15352

 

I got a late start as a HAM. I didn't get licensed until 1995 although I've been interested in Radio most of my life. Born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, I entered the USAF in 1966 and spent a 20 year carreer in Communications and Command & Control. Served several years as a Radio Op/Aircrew member aboard EC 135 Airborne Command Post aircraft. Two and a half years in South East Asia and the Pacific. I attended the Community College of the Air Force and Butler County Community College where my studies centered on Communications Technolodgy and Environmental Science. I retired from the Air Force in 1987 and went into the trucking business which eventually got me transferred to Memphis, Tn. in 2004.  There I managed a truck terminal for the 2nd largest tank truck carrier in the US. I lived there till 2007 when I moved back to Western Pennsylvania. I've had the opportunity to travel in all 50 US states, Guam, Wake, Okinawa, the Phillipines, Thailand, Japan, England, Mexico, Canada. I am now semi-retired and an active USAF MARS operator. I like to work DX, some of the digital modes, and rag-chew. My station is always changing, but today it consists of a Kenwood TS-480HX  (in a portable kit containing the radio, 45 amp power supply, 300 watt auto tuner, and a Maxcon OCF dipole antenna),  an RCI 2995DX, Icom IC-7200 (with a home brew USAF camo paint job), a Yaesu FT-991 and a Yaesu FTDX-3000.  I fly the American flag Every day. My other hobby is Jeeps and offroading. Thanks for taking the time to look me up.  (Be sure to check out my Military Tribute Station in the pics below. It's the IC-7200, Icom PS-125 power supply, Kenwood SP-23 speaker, and MFJ 993B auto tuner....all done in USAF blue camo.)

73,

Eden (Butch) McCollough...K3AFR
