I changed from my original call KB3VWK  to KC3RW  to celebrate 30 years of marriage to my YL KB3WAV.  KC was her maiden initials and RW are mine so makes for neat call.  Plus way easier to send in Morse.

Recently K lynn and I have been doing a lot of Parks on the air POTA  we have been having a lot of  fun doing activations.   We  did a trip up to MI/MN back in September

National Parks on the air (NPOTA).  Kerri ended up Number 5 in the nation, I ended up 23. Our accomplishments were the following:

antiedam battle, moncacy battle field, Greenbelt Park, Johnstown Flood park, Bluestone National Scenic River, Friendship Hill, Fort Neccessity, GAULEY river 1st Activations for NPOTA It was todate the single most fun activity we have had in ham radio Final equipment used was alpha mota antennas with ft 857/ kenwood 480.  Many modifications were made before we got to that point.

below is some of our mobile and portable platforms for NPOTA activations.

car was at flight 93 very cold day.

Got my TECH ticket April 2011  Its been a great hobby and now my wife is involved also KB3WAV. We enjoyed working the 3905 century club. I use 2 meter nets on my commute to work everyday.I have been blessed by God with living in a old growth red oak hard wood forest. We are using the red oak trees with lines strung at 60ft and at a right angles to each other.  The Yaesu FT 897 and Yaesu FT 450D ares the rig we use for SSB and CW. I have two vibroplex bugs from 1918 and 1942. I now own 4 Czech straight keys and one bencher paddle. I  have been doing QRP with my ft 817.

I do Summit On the Air (SOTA) with my wife we have activated 3 peaks so far using the 817 and 897 that we backpack in.  I have credit for first activation of a summit using my old call sign of KB3VWK.  The hope is to get my wife to get one of the last two unclaimed summits in Maryland.

 May God bless you and thanks for reading my bio

We almost lost my youngest KC3ETT in a car accident in summber of 2016 but praise be to God she has made a full recovery thanks to all for the many prayers that went up to heaven during that time.

Love doing SWL and hearing the Gospel being preached to all the world via short wave. I am born again and love that I am now getting to use the radio to meet other Christians.  Knew there was a reason I learned Morse at 18 years old, listening to those old radio shack tapes.
