First licensed in 1978, my dad (K4HJ) fuelled my interest in amateur radio and electronics in general.  I was not on the air very much, due to other interests, so my license expired.  Interest was renewed and in 2006 I took the Technician exam during the ARRL Field Day and was relicensed as KI4QBP.  I was stationed in England, with the U.S. Air Force, at the time and obtained a reciprocal British license and the call sign M0ECD.

I enjoy most aspects of the hobby that I have tried but really enjoy the challenges of contesting and VHF.  I am usually the only operator from Rockwall county, the smallest county in Texas, during the Texas QSO Party, so keep an ear out for K5BGL.

I operate mobile most weekdays, it makes the commute much more tolerable.

Call signs held:

KA4FQR - 1978-1988

KI4QBP - 2006-2008

M0ECD - 2006-2011

KI6YYZ - 2008-2011

KF5MGM - 2011-2012

K5BGL (vanity) - 2012-present

Home setup is an FT-897D feeding an Alpha Delta DX-EE in the attic and an M2 6M3-SS on a 40 ft mast with rotator.

View of the FT-857 control head, the radio body is mounted to the floorboard beneath the drivers seat.

 

On the 5th of April 2017 we lost Lucky Girl, my "Radio Beagle".  She loved to hang out with me whenever I was "playing" radio, as my wife put it.  She may be a Silent Key but she'll always be a part of my shack and in my heart.
