Ham Member Lookups: 1227


HI: I'm Jim Better known as JD living here in Rice Lake WI. I guess you could call me a reborn Ham. I was raised in the Chicago area and a friend who was a VE that I worked with got me interested in Amature radio so I studied and took my test for a Tech License and behold I became a Ham in the early 70s. Worked code and had a 2 and 6 meter setup for AM phone also. I was a TV service man at that time and also had a part time Custom Body Shop.

I then decided to move up to Northern WI. Put up my 7 element cushcraft ant. and didn't here a sole so I got involved in Tournament Bass fishing and let my License Lapse in MId 80s. Opened a Music Store and Magnavox Dealership. After 12 Years I then decided to get back into Car repair and ended up with a Used Car Dealership and Body Shop. Well After Tournament fishing for 41 years one day I decided to straighten out some things in the basement and there on the top shelf in a couple of boxes was my old Ameco AM Ham Gear. Don't know what happened but a spark went off and I needed to get back into the things I enjoyed back in the 70s HAM RADIO. Retested and became a Ham again with a General ticket This year and am now looking forward to meeting new folks on the airways and making new friends. I have a lot of new things to learn and catch up with.

Some of my other hobby's are going to car shows showing  my 1968 Charger RT that has been in the family since 1969. Playing and building guitars. Riding My Harley and Tournament Fishing with my Son. I Also do Custom Stainless Prop Repair for some of the big Bass Boat Dealers thruout the Area. So as not to get to boring I'll end it here.

Radio's in my shack are a Icom IC-745 and Kenwood TS-590s . Heathkit SB-200 Amp. Multiband Mystery antenna 30Ft off the ground

and a Zero Five 40 thru 10 meter Ground Plane.  BEST 73s  JIM
