Ham Member Lookups: 1168



My name is Joe and I’m from Jonesville Michigan. Grid Locator: EN71qx  I first like to give special thanks to my uncle; he got me started in radio by encouraging me to listen to his police scanner.  Later, I got the “Convoy” bug and purchased a CB radio. The FCC required CB'er’s during these days to have a license.  During my teenage years, I learned about the ham radio.  How do you obtain a Ham Radio license? The first thing I was told was, I needed to get my first class radio telephone license then go after your ham license.  I gave up the radio dream for awhile and placed it on my bucket list.  I met a Coworker/Friend/Elmer (KD8NOI) who had his ham license and he continued to encourage me for several months to get my ticket.  My Elmer’s friend (AC8GD) was selling a radio.  Best advice: Purchase a radio now even if you don’t have your license yet.  I ended up purchasing a Kenwood TS 2000 Multiband radio, power supply and a Comet Tri-Band antenna. I live with my beautiful wife of 28+ years. Our daughter is currently in college studying to be a Physical Therapist.  We are extremely proud of her and all her accomplishments. Our family has two dogs. (Samoyed & Siberian Husky).
