My HAM History:

I was first licensed as a technician on July 4th, 2015 at a breakfast hosted by the 220mhz Guys in Chicago, Il.  At the time I was working in Clinton, IL and had a long weekend off.  I studied for the test and then made the 2 hour drive to Chicago because the 220mhz Guys club have a breakfast every Saturday and offer testing at these breakfasts every week.  After I passed my test they invited me into the group as though I was a long lost friend and used the follow 4 hours to tell me about the things they liked about the hobby.

On July 18, 2016 I obtained my General license at a HAM Fest in North Western, MO.  I call the suburbs of Kansas City home and happened to be in town from December 2015-August 2016 working out of my company's office in Lenexa, KS.  During my short stay home I encountered the Santa Fe Trail ARC.  This is a club I maintain membership with even if I'm away from home.  There are several gentlemen from the club that have been helping me via email to find resources to support my efforts to learn CW.  My first HF expereinces were with at the SFTARC Field Day.  They allowed me to work he GOTA station for a portion of the day which was awesome!  I also spent quite a bit of time at the CW station seeing how that whole operation works.

Currently I am working in the Memphis, TN area and have found some pretty cool places to operate from.  If you have contacted me between September 2016 - now you likely found me in one of the following places:

  1. KOA Memphis
  2. Meeman-Shelby State Park Boat ramp which overlooks the Mississippi River
  3. Wapanocca National Wildlife Refuge
  4. Fort Pillow State Historic Site
  5. Hillsdale, KS during a couple of trips home over Thanksgiving and Christmas

I don't have continuous access to the internet through out my travels so I'm probably 200+ QSOs in the rears on QRZ.COM confirmations but I'll get it done as time allows.  At this point in my life HAM radio pursuits are a hobby and work dominates a lot of my time so I'm alittle slow getting things out.  This doesn't mean I don't appreciate your call and I will get it done....hopefully via manual QSL cards.  I really get a kick out of digging through a small pile of QSL cards when I get home and start digging through the mail.  I really appreciate the folks that take the time to put them in the mail!

I'm not a big contester.  I really like chatting with folks from different places over the air.  You never know who you're going to meet when you fire up the rig, find a clear frequency and start calling CQ!
