Greetings from Jerry & Evelyn, K7PNW and K7OMY, from our home on the outskirts of YAKIMA...
"The Palm Springs of Washington"
Welcome to our shack! We operate an Icom IC-7600, an Icom IC-706MKIIG and a Yaesu FT-7800R. Our HF signals switch between two, 90º opposed, 6-80 meter OCF dipoles and a 10-15 meter vertical. VHF and UHF signals are exchanged through a 2m/440 five element beam and a dual-band ground plane.
We can usually be found on the phone portions of 80 and 40 meters, but once in a while we explore other bands when propagation...or a wild hair...so inspires. And we also enjoy chatting on nightly 2m, 6m and 10m nets here in the Yakima Valley.
For us, ham radio is a fun activity, more social than technical you might say. We highly value our association with our ham friends as well as our membership in the Yakima Amateur Radio Club (W7AQ).
That's it for now. Thanks for looking us up and we hope to make connections again soon.
Jerry & Ev
Thanks to A.J. and DION for their help and advice in installing both mobile and base station equipment. And thanks to HOWARD, GREGG, RANDY W, TIM, DAVE and RAY for their part in installing and maintaining our base station antennas.
Additional thanks to Cousin LARRY (K7EKD) for a virtual lifetime of patience, motivation and technical advice; to our friend, BETSY (KG7SMB), for her friendship and inspiration; and to our friend, BOB (WB7WAM), the dynamo behind oh so many amazing adventures in and around the radio hobby AND the guy we go to when someone says, "Take me to your leader". Also, a huge thanks to all the hams in the Yakima Valley who have helped put the "zing" into Amateur Radio. You folks have encouraged us tremendously.
And, a very, very special THANK YOU to our Son-In-Law, RANDY (N7PNW), for his savvy and back-breaking hands-on endeavors. We absolutely could not do it without him!
