Ham Member Lookups: 969

 

I became interested in ham radio when I met my husband, Ron Ochu (KO0Z).  His enthusiam for his hobby was infectious and I began to greatly appreciate the devotion that he and other operators have to ham radio.  I got my technician license on Field Day 2011 and I am currently studying for my general class license.  I love that the ham radio community is full of intelligent, talented people and that there are so many interesting aspects to ham radio (emergency preparation, contesting, DXing, communicating with people near and very far).  One of my favorite activities during the year is teaming with my husband for the ARRL RTTY roundup contest each January.  Even though I am not on the radio as much as Ron, I do enjoy Field Day and hamfests and the commaraderie among operators.  

I am a public school teacher (middle school, special education) and my husband and I sponsor a communications-technology club where I work.  With a grant from the ARRL and much donated time from various individuals, we have a working radio that can communicate around the world.  We offered a ham radio technicians license class and, as a result, there are six new ham radio licensed operators, one of which is my son (age 11 at the time)!  It was very exciting to see the enthusiasm of these middle school students.  Our club has participated in the fall school club roundup and we will be on the air again in February.

 I love to read and geocache in my spare time.  I look forward to one day retiring from my job and being crazy busy with things I enjoy.  KO0Z is my inspiration on that count!
