Ham Member Lookups: 965

 

I first became interested in radio communications during the late 1970s.  My Dad was heavily involved in CB radios during the CB craze, and it rubbed off on me.  It was at that time he purchased his first scanner, an Electra Bearcat.  Many nights over the years were spent listening to that scanner and others.

After a while, the desire to talk as well as listen appeared.  I passed the exam for my Technician class Amateur Radio license in November 1993.  After being out of ham radio for many years, I upgraded to General in February 2017.  My first HF QSO was on March 5, 2017 to Jose Luis Jaen, HP2BWJ, on 28.437 USB.  I'm looking forward to many more HF QSOs in the future.

I am proud to say that my son Warren, KN4AQG, developed an interest in amateur radio late in 2016 and passed his Technician test in January 2017.  In May 2017, he upgraded to General.

Our shack is in the rebuilding phase as time and money allows.  The HF radio is an ICOM 735.  2m/70cm is a QYT KT-8900d dual band mobile radio and an ICOM IC-229H.  In my car, I have a Kenwood TM-733, a Kenwood TK-780 and a Kenwood TK-880.  My son and I have also built a simplex Echolink node (KN4AQG-L) using a  Kenwood TM-271a mobile radio with a ULI and a cooling fan.  This node is online for any amateur operator who wishes to use it.

As shown on my QSL card, I've been a railfan all my life, and I am also the proud owner of a handlebar moustache!  I've had several people say that I look like Theodore Roosevelt!

I work mostly FT-8 with a little 2M, Echolink and HF phone.

I QSL here on qrz.com, eQSL and on LOTW.  Paper QSL cards are accepted and reciprocated.  No need to send a SASE, if you pay for postage to send your QSL card to me, i'll pay to send mine to your QTH.  Send me an email when you send yours and i'll get one in the mail to you.
