Ham Member Lookups: 2322














Hello my name is Barry McCoy and I live about 30 miles south of Dallas Tx. I live on 6 acres in Ellis County and have no restrictions. I am lucky because across the street is in the City of Ovilla and they need to get everything approved.
I started out in the early sixty's with CB which was licensed (KNM4422).  I had friends in Jr. High that also had CB's. Build my first one from a kit Knight Kit C-22 which is in the picture (Cira 1964).
I grew up in Huntington W.Va. and related to both the Hatfields and McCoys. My stepfather's great uncle was the leader of the Hatfields clan named Devil Anse.
I moved to Chicago in 1968 to attend Devry Electronics School. Lost interest in radio, life got in the way.  Got married and worked for IBM in Chicago.
In 1977 I got transfered to Dallas (and love it).  In 1981 started my own IT business and still doing it to this day.
Kids are grown and got interested in radio again, got my Tech license in spring 2012 and General fall 2012.
I am enjoying 2 meter with a good group local (there are around 50 repeaters in the area). Another thing I enjoy has been building antennas.
My first was a Jpole for 2/440 then a dipole for 40 meters and now a Hexbeam for 6 thru 20. I am erecting two Rohn 25 towers about 150 feet apart.
My current radios are ICOM-756 PROII, IC-821, IC-271H, IC-756, IC-7000 in the Shack and FT-100 and Alinco DR-605 with Atas 100 in my Jeep.
Since I am in the Jeep a lot I make most contacts mobile (17 meters).
Not much for contesting, I like to make friends and rag chew.
