Greetings and thanks for looking me up. My first experience in amateur radio was at Field Day 2013. I sat down at the GOTA station, received some friendly instruction, put on my headset, called out CQ and never looked back. I soon realized this would be a lifelong learning experience and a whole lot of fun! I wasted no time in getting my Tech ticket in October 2013 and jumped on 10 meters at a very exciting time. I was bitten by the HF bug right away and soon focused my efforts on obtaining DXCC. I'm proud to say that award now hangs in a special place in our shack! With the enthusiasm and encouragement of my husband, K4RGK, I upgraded to General in June 2014 and it really opened up the bands! It's always fun getting through to you in a HF pileup. I enjoy talking on repeaters, contesting, DXing, simplex and on the satellites.
I mostly use an ICOM 7000 with an OCF dipole at 30 ft.. For the "birds" a handheld Arrow II with a Yaesu VX-6R or the TS 2000 with an EL-AZ rotor and a pair of circular polarized beams.
I am a member of the following clubs and organizations:
2016/2017 Secretary of the North Fulton Amatuer Radio League, http://Nfarl.org
