First licensed in May of 1969 as a Technician Class (passed a 5 WPM code test) and remained a Tech until 2007 when I upgraded to General Class. Previously my call was WB5CHV but following my uncle's death, I applied for and received his call as he was the greatest influence on my becoming a ham.

Located in the northwest part of Houston Texas. I have a Flex 5000A and enjoy SDR hamming.  My amp is a Kenwood TL-922A that runs about 1100+ watts output. I recently replaced my backup radio with a ICOM IC-7100, now I have the same radio as the one in my vehicle. The fixed station antenna is a random length dipole hidden in the trees as I happen to live in a very restrictive HOA neighborhood. The dipole is up at approximately 40 feet and seems to be working well. I run a ARX-270 Ringo dual band antenna for VHF-UHF. I have installed an IC-7100 in my Ford F-150, and run a 350 watt amplifier, with a Tarheel 100-HP Screwdriver antenna controlled by a N2VZ Turbo Tuner and it works great. I enjoy 40 meters from the vehicle and 10 meters when it is open (10-10 #43173).

Recently moved into the D-Star world with an Icom ID-51, DV Dongle and DVAP running on a Rasberry PI. Still a newbie and still working to understanding the digital radio world, but it is very appealing. Now if I could just get some of my friends on D-Star! I am now on D-Star in the shack and the vehicle using the IC-7100s.

I am now getting started with DMR in the Houston area. I use the Houston area repeaters and am experimenting with a SharkRF Openspot.  My DMR # is 3148791.

I like to think of myself as a amateur meteorlogist, check the weather out at my home QTH:http://www.weatherlink.com/user/jmjohn/of another presentation can be found at:http://www.johnstonville.net/Current_Vantage_Pro.html
