Ham Member Lookups: 6933

I started really listening to the ham bands during Tropical Storm Floyd. Being an avid police scanner buff I was tuning around the ham bands listening for something different besides the public safety broadcasts. Some radio friends of mine encouraged me to get my license and in April of 2000, I passed my technician test. Two years later in 2002 I obtained my General Class license. I am currently active on PSK-31 on 20 and 40 meters

When I was younger, I wanted to become a fireman or policeman just like any other boy my age. A few years went by and it was obvious I couldn’t fulfill those dreams but still wanted to help other people. Instead I decided to become an emergency management volunteer, ham radio was my ticket. Most of the hams I know are involved in emergency management and have explain to me how being a radio operator is a valuable function My town isn’t that big and the emergency management personnel mostly consists of public safety personnel. They welcomed me and my knowledge of amateur radio into their organization. My training with other amateur radio operators gives me an opportunity to contribute to their group. Being a ham is a way to assist in emergency situations without having my disability get in the way.

I always answer any QSLcard, no SASE needed. HOWEVER with my disability it is extremely hard to send QSL and the SASE is added step. I ALWAYS SASE TO SPECIALEVENTS, but when it comes to individuals, I no longer can grant SASE requests. I will gladly send $2 to cover postage. This goes for domestic and foreign QSLs!!!!!
