Ham Member Lookups: 3706


Greetings from the inland Northwest.


I became interested in this hobby back in 2003 while working security at the Raymond sawmill in Raymond, WA. I met a couple of  ham operators that was working at the mill and introduced me to amateur radio. On December 1, 2003  I received my Tech license and my first radio was a Radio Shack HT202 which was given to me. Later I bought a 2m ADI and various other 2m radios that I have acquired over the years through bartering and trading. In 2007 I received my General Class license. I then bought a Yaesu 897D which is my first HF all mode radio. In April 2012 I received my Extra Class license, which I was very excited about. I decided at that time not to change my call.  I also purchased a Yaesu 857D back in Oct. 2013, and that has became my mobile rig. I'm very happy with both radio's.

My current antenna is a homemade Carolina Windham that I work all bands on HF and each leg of the antenna is at least 500 ft long on each side and its off centered fed.  I'm also running a Diamond vertical quad bander which runs 2m, 70cm, 6m and 10m. I run a 75 meter ham stick in mobile. and a 2 meter mobile antenna as well. I plan on buying a dual bander later on.  I'm currently working on building up my sending and receiving  speed on CW. My grand daughter recently won a j-pole made by Guy VA7GV at the last KBARA Ham Out. July 26, 2014.  And she gave it to me. it's a dual band with a flat match on both 2 meters and 70 cm. I'm using it as promised. We had a great time there.

I'm a life time member of the Western Country Cousins and the Northwest Country Cousins along with various other nets. Such as the Single Side Band Net, CBN, WARTS NET. And a local ARES RACES member for Pend Orielle County.

I currently reside outside of Newport, WA. south of Diamond Lake with my Wife Sharon and my pets. Me and Sharon were married on July 21,2014. We have been together 4 1/2 years prior. My information is current on QRZ. My Email is mrpibb1963@yahoo.com. Feel free to e-mail me.
