Ham Member Lookups: 1192

 

I've been interested in ham radio for decades and finally got my Technician license in June 2016.  As an Elmer told me when I passed the Extra exam, I now have a license to learn.  He wasn't kidding and that's one of the things I like best about the hobby.

I'm active on VHF and UHF and beginning to learn digital modes D-STAR, Fusion, WiresX, and DMR.  I recently acquired a DV-AP and finally figured out D-STAR.  Mostly listening on digital voice modes now but making a few contacts too.  I joined Denton County ARES and in April 2016 I completed CERT Basic Training and joined Denton County CERT in early 2017.

I have an HF rig and have made some contacts but I'm mostly listening using portable antennas.  Working on getting up a permanent HF antenna but the challenge is HOA restrictions, a small yard, and radiant barriers that make the house a virtual Faraday cage.  (Broadcast AM, FM, weather radio, and cell phone reception is also poor.)  I'm exploring options for magnetic loops, external verticals, and end-fed wire antennas that don't attract too much attention.  Suggestions from hams in similar circumstances are welcome.

 KNON 89.3 FM
I've been involved with broadcast FM radio as an on-air volunteer at Dallas community radio station KNON 89.3 FM since 1987.  I have a Blues program on Monday evenings from 18:00-20:00 US Central Time. You can listen to KNON on the air at 89.3 FM in North Texas or online from KNON.org or using Internet radio or online apps like InTune.

Many thanks to all the Elmers!  I need all the help I can get.  The great people I meet on air and in person are the best thing about this hobby.  73!
