Ham Member Lookups: 3307


I have been interested in ham radio since about age 10 when my uncle was a ham. He had a home brew 800 watt transmitter, Hallicrafters receiver with a tower and beam antenna. I was quite impressed and did a lot of listening to ham radio but was intimidated by the code test. It wasn't until 2003 at the age of 54 that I had the time and resources and decided to try it again. Really glad I did!

I have an ICOM 706 MKIIG that I primarily use for VHF and mobile HF. For HF, I enjoy using my ICOM 7300 with a Ten-Tec Omni C as a backup. I also recently acquired a Knight T-60 transmitter.  I primarily use it on CW although it will do AM as well.  I use my Heathkit HR 1680 or Hallicrafters T-60 as the receiver for the T-60.  I also have a Ten-Tec R-4030 QRP transceiver that I use for QRP and mobile CW when we are traveling. 

My favorite bands for SSB are 17, 20 and 40.  I enjoy getting on 40 cw in the evenings either QRP or with the T-60 for a short chat before turning in for the night.   I normally use a straight key and am a member of the straight key century club # 2509. I like to work 7.040 - 7.060 in the evenings around 0400 UTC. I am currently using a dipole antenna at about 30 feet for 40m and a cobweb for 10-20m.

I like the old fashioned QSL cards and respond 100%. 73's from Tucson.
