Hello, and thanks for your QSO or interest in looking up K7MLN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Chances are you have heard my call sign over the air, or we have had a QSO:

I am an active Logbook Of The World (LOTW) , and eQSL.cc user.

I would also really enjoy trading QSL cards, in the traditional postal mail method.
I am currently getting a QSL card designed, and should have cards printed by the end of July 2016.
Any and all QSL cards sent to me via regular mail will get a reply card from me.
I think this is a great Ham tradition and would really enjoy trading QSL cards.

A bit about me:

I was originally introduced to HAM radio by my cousin Dan in Ashton ID USA, when I was about 11 or 12 years old, around 1970 or so. He was a CW operator in the early 70's and intruiged me watching him make world wide CW contacts.

At 56 I finally decided to get my license. I received my technician class on Jan. 27th 2016. I then studied for and obtained both a general and ameteur extra rating this year as well within about 4 to 5 weeks after getting the technician. I am currently a database developer, but had taken many years of high school and college electronics. While I never received my EE degree, the background stayed with me which helped with the licensing course work, especially the extra.

I would highly recommend that anyone try for both the technician and general licenses together or within a few weeks of each other.
In my experience the technician class is mostly rules and regulations, as well as "introduction to electronics" technical level. Anyone with a little time to study and a little common sense should be able to pass the technician course and obtain their license.
Getting the general license is not a huge amount of work if done shortly after the technician. 
A lot of the general learning and portions of the test are minor, but not major extensions of what is studied and tested for in the Technician requirements.
In my opinion, having the knowledge learned while studying for the technician license fresh in your mind will greatly accelerate and ease your study for the general class. Go for it!

I am now learning CW starting in March 2016.

Some other interests and hobbies, and interesting pictures...
(do not yet have much of a ham shack so no ham shack picture)

Picture is of me launching my radio controlled Canberra Bomber power slope glider at Point Of The Mountain UT, with help from friends, I'm in the tan hat, ligher colored shirt, facing the camera looking down the hill.

 

I used to own a 1961 Mooney, currently I don't own an airplane, but here's a picture of my grand daughter and my old airplane;

 

My grand son Micah about Feb, 2016, too funny....
