Purchased my iCom ID-51A Plus on my trip to 2015; Dayton Hamvention.  Primarily interested in EComm and built a "Go Kit" with a Kenwood mobile for field communication.  Now operating an iCom 7100 (which was acquired on my 2016 trip to Dayton, Hamvention) as my base in the "Man Cave/Woodworking Pole Barn."  The iCom 7100 is connected to a GAP Titan Antenna on the roof of the pole barn.  My first shack HF contact was on 40m with the 7.235 Family Net which operates from 1200 - 1300 Z.

My XYL (Deb) and I enjoy riding our Harely-Davidson motorcycles around the country.  We are both six figure riders; Deb has over 100,000 miles on her motorcycles and I have over 200,000 on my motorcycles.  We became active Harley riders in 1995 and I served as the Director of the Southwest Michigan Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) for five years from 2005 to 2010.

We are also Geocachers and maintained a daily streak from July 29, 2013 until January 05, 2015 and have over 2,000 finds in thirty-two states.  We have also cached in all eighty-three counties in the State of Michigan.  Completing the countys in the Upper Pennisula on our motorcycles in  2015.
