Ham Member Lookups: 61


I'm a new ham, just got my Tech in January, 2018 and rushed to get my General as quickly as I could after that a couple of weeks later. Definitely new to all of this, so I should probably take some time to actually get myself up to speed before going Extra (you know, like more than two weeks this time) so that I don't accidentally give anyone the impression that I actually know what I'm doing with any of this.

My radio background: I am old enough to remember the CB craze of the '70s, and spent a bunch of time on my grandpa's CB base station when I was a kid. I was also licensed for 2m FM in my high school years while I was in Civil Air Patrol in the Asheville, NC area (doing comms for SAR missions - lots of lost hikers and the occasional crashed plane out there). I was a Field Radio Operator (MOS 2531) in the Marine Corps from 1990-94 (Desert Shield/Desert Storm), but after I got out of the military, I haven't touched a transceiver until I recently decided to get back into playing with radios.

I live just east of Seattle in the Issaquah, WA area, and work for Amazon. I'm excited about all of the things going on in radio, especially all of this fancy digital stuff.

Like many green hams, I picked up a cheap Baofeng (BF-F8HP and a Nagoya NA-771 whip - on Amazon, of course), and immediately realized I wanted more, so I bought a Kenwood TH-D74A for handheld and am in the process of getting an ICOM IC-7100 and a Super Antenna MP1DXMAX. I live in an apartment, so I'm operating with the smallest footpront I know how to get away with for the time being. Almost feels like being back in the Corps, but with much nicer equipment.
