Ham Member Lookups: 697

 

  I received my Technician license in August 2014 after taking a Ham in a Day class.  I have been interested in radio since I was a kid.  My folks had an old console radio that would pick up short-wave broadcast like BBC World and Radio Moscow.  I built my first crystal radio kit in the 60's.  I was big into the CB craze in the 70's.  Code has always kicked my butt, I learned enought to pass the requirements to advance in Boy Scouts but that was it.  I found out in early 2014 that CW was no longer required and so I took the class.  I tested for General in Oct 2014 and Extra in November 2014.  It has been a great learning experience ever since.   Also, I have become an ARRL and Laurel Volunteer Examiner.

 My HF rig is a Kenwood TS-480/SAT.   I also have a Yaesu FT-60R HT and a Yaesu FT-7900 mobile unit.  For a temporary HF antenna I have a pair of HAM_Stiks in a dipole configuration. 

 I am retired.  I spent 8.5 years in the US Air Force working electronics and radar (Speciality code: 32170K) on the B-52 Bomber.  After leaving the Air Force I worked in electronics R&D and assembly for 14.5 years and then moved into IT and worked as network administrator and computer support for the next 15 years.  Since retiring I have been volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America as a Commissioner and as a Radio Merit Badge counselor.  Currently I am the District Commissioner for Lakeshore Distrist, President Ford Field Service Council.
