Ham Member Lookups: 389


I'm a degreed Electrical Engineer (Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology '75) that has worked 40+ years in manufacturing and recently became interested in ham radio while working with others in the community on Emergency Preparedness.

Our group of ten (which included my XYL KC3JAS) studied and tested together in March 2017, with all passing the Technician test, much to the consternation of the VEs!

I passed the Technician and General tests in March 2017, Extra in June 2017 and received my ARRL VE Certification in September 2017..  As a tribute to the few remaining people that can do so, I took my Extra test using the slide rule I used to earn my BSEE instead of a calculator..

Since then, one of the group has passed the General test.

Ran Mobile/Base VHF/UHF initially and just finished my initial HF set up which I find to be much more interesting.

Base HF setup includes a Kenwood TS-590SG, SDRPlay running on HDSDRplay, and an end fed dipole due to terrain restrictions, which so far, has been giving me excellent results.

Portable battery powered HF station uses a Kenwood TS-480SAT, MyPanadapter running on HDSDRplay, with an Alpha Antennas 6-80M Complete Multiband tuner free HF antenna.

Having exploited technology in my professional career, I am extremely impressed with what the Ham Community has developed with all of the various operating methods.

I am really enjoying the hobby and look forward to retiring soon so I can spend more time on it.

One of my major objectives after retirement is to become proficient in Morse Code.  Although no longer required for the license, I think it is a key tool for my tool box.
