Ham Member Lookups: 398


A little about me...

Licensed as a Technician in 2000. A year later I upgraded to General, set up a 70 ft Rohn Foldover Tower, and ran a Cushcraft A4S beam with a G5RV on the side. My rig is an old Kenwood TS-930S which included a AT230 and Speaker with an MC60 mic. I enjoyed making DX contacts and talking on various HF nets until I moved and all the gear stowed. I haven't active too much over the last few years.

The bug hit again and I made it to the the hamfest in Puyallup this year and met up with a lot of old friends. I picked up a little Chinese 2m/70cm HT and have been listening on the local repeaters again. Kind of sad the activity isn't what it used to be.

Current Goal: Upgrade to Extra cool (It's going to happen in May 2017) Mission Accomplished!

Plans: Sell my base gear and tower, and purchase a mobile multiband HF rig. laugh Well, sold my ROHN tower but kept my old Kenwood TS-940. I added a couple new radios, a Yaesu FT991 and FT857. I am very interested in portable ops now, which I used my FT857 for mainly. I am running a superantenna which I've made quite a few contacts with. My last unit I picked up is a Yaesu VX-8DR. I hope to do more hiking and climbing with my portables and activating local peaks here.

Lastly, my interests lay in the outdoors (hiking, climbing, camping etc...) riding my bicycles and motorcycles and lately, 2m/70cm repeater activity, portable operations. Never thought I would get to combine my love of outdoors and ham radio, but it's coming together nice and steady.
