Ham Member Lookups: 1294


I used to have a future, then I got into ham radio.

"This radio lark's a wonderful hobby, y'know. I've got friends all over the world, all over the world... none in this country, but friends all over the world." --Tony Hancock (1924-1968)

My call used to be KD5EUO until Dec. 2016.

I have been an amateur radio operator since I was 27, with prior communications experience with the Civil Air Patrol since age 14. I have an interest in emergency communications and maintain a station that can be battery-operated backpack portable and solar-powered.


My brother (KB5PRZ) and I (KA5D) operating a Yaesu FT-101EE for the first time at our cousin's station WB0YRQ, at ages 7 and 4. That's me with a death grip on the microphone, in the middle of a key-down. This was the very moment I knew I wanted a radio of my own someday.

Base station: Yaesu FTDX-3000, Hy End Fed 8 band wire.

VHF Contest Limited Rover: Yaesu FT-991 with amps, loops, and beams for 6/2/1.25/.7 meters.

Motorcycle mobile (2013 Zero S electric motorcycle): Yaesu FTM-10R dual-band, hands-free to helmet bluetooth headset.

Portable: Yaesu FT-60R. Kenwood TK-481 for 900Mhz.

My other interests include family, DIY projects, business, motorcycles, rowing, and music.
