Ham Member Lookups: 125


New operator as of June 2017 - It's been something I've had on my to-do list since roughly 1991, when there was a class in high school and there were a couple of ham's in school; and I just thought it was cool.  I passed all three tests in a couple of months, though honestly the tech and general were old knowledge as most of the information was the same as on the Mil side.

I then spent 10 years as a 13F in the Army, which I used FM, HF, UHF and VHF radios; communicated TCP over FM using a scsi adapter between the radio and computer, learned antenna building, emergency comms, et cetera.  I left the Army, joined the National Guard as a signal NCO, though I didn't work the FM side.  

Right now I'm playing around with a zum-spot and trying to understand D-Star with this ID-31, and making contacts on the YSF repeaters.

So far I'm mostly local as I'm building or purchasing equipment as funds allow; I use an FT 857D on my desktop and FT 817ND in the backpack; and I have a couple of Yaesu handhelds on top of the Icom.  

My son, KE0PLL, is 11 and has his Tech and wants his General :)  

What really interests me right now is QRP - I like the idea of low wattage out and making contacts.  I am also motivated to learn CW.
