Ham Member Lookups: 22461

 

Hello from Kingwood, Texas..

My dad was a ham before I was born so I have always been around ham radio. I used to talk to my dad on the auto patch from home when I was a kid. I worked as an electronics assembler for my dad's company for a few years attaching and soldering parts, including those tiny surface mount parts on circuit boards. I like the tedious job of soldering so I usually get that task when some needs done.

I became more interested in ham radio when I moved to Missouri. I got my technician license in 1997. I now have my General License and working towards my Extra Class License . I was involved in C.E.R.T., A.R.E.S., R.A.C.E.S., Weather Spotting, and Emergency Management. I have to admit I didn't really talk on the radio very much except to check into local nets and work events like Field Day. I helped out with the MS Bike Tour for about 10 years as communication for one of the rest stops for the bicyclists.

In the summer of 2007 I was a part of a group that formed called OMAR(Ozark Mountain Amateur Radio Group). We then put up a 2m DStar Repeater in Ozark, Missouri. The callsign for the repeater is W0OMD. I keyed up on DStar for the first time at a Hamfest in Springfield, Missouri and made my first two contacts with 2 stations over in California, WA6YTD and WW6USA. I was hooked on DStar after that and became a regular talker on the radio. I have enjoyed making great friends all over the world. It definitely has made the World seem alot smaller. I am the net control station for a DStar Net on Sunday evenings on Reflector 1C at 7:00 p.m. central time called the International DStar Net. I enjoy doing the net and having stations checking in from different parts of the world.

My radios include a Yaesu FT 51R, IC2200H, IC2820H, IC91AD, IC92AD with GPS Mic. IC80AD with GPS Mic, Anniversary 51A, and of course the DV Dongle and the DVAP Dongle. I enjoy being the American Representative to the group over on GB7SF in Sheffield, England. They sent me a shirt with their logo and my name and callsign embroidered on it. I would have to say DStar is my favorite mode of communication, but after being a frequent user of DStar, I feel like I could talk on any radio band now. Thank you to all my friends out there in the DStar Community who have helped me in learning about DStar and Ham Radio in general.

Thanks for looking me up and if you hear me on the radio, dv dongle, or echolink please push that button and say hi.

My echolink node # is 391464
