My Wife, Irene, N6PMC (SK) got her tech license and needed help to set up her shack so I started learning about a hobby I never was interested in. At which point I realised I was now interested.

 

 

I took my first test May 5, 2013 and jumped in with both feet. I took both tech and general the same day and passed (Irene wouldn't be outdone, she took her general and passed) as of 11/2/13 I have now passed my extra exam. A little update, Irene has now passed her Extra Class Exam also!! More good new, my Dad is now a Ham, passed his General. KK6MEZ

I now have WAS, WAZ, DXCC (as of today 218 confirmed with at least 100 on 20m-10m) and am closing in on 5 band WAS. I am going to have to start concentrating on the long bands (slow going) for 5 band DXCC.

Irene and I are both Volunteer Examiners.

I am currently using an IC-756 pro, ALS 600 amp for 10m - 160m, an Alinco DR-635 for 2m -70cm. I put up a Carolina Windom 160 dipole and an XR6 for 6 through 20 at 40'. 

I'm also using a K4KIO hexbeam as a portable antenna. 

I love and miss you Irene, RIP

I have also started in Digital modes, I am using a Signalink, Dm780 and JT 65- HF. I just found a new program (for me) for JT65, WSJTX and I think it's easier to configure and also does JT9. Mobile I have just upgraded to an ICOM 7000 with a Little Tarheel HP and expect to use an IC-7200 in my Motor home.

A recent trip to Emma Wood State Beach in Ventura, Ca. I had never thought of making my hexbeam portable but it only took 45 min to setup.

I also maintain a 2m repeater, 147.765, -offset, pl- 123

Life is too short for QRP!
