Ham Member Lookups: 1699

 

My 8th grade science teacher had peaked my interest in ham radio in 1969. He had assembled a Heathkit radio and a beam on the roof of the school.  Everyday in class he would make some contacts.  At the time, CW was required but I didn't have anything to learn on.  So I made an oscillator from a hack saw blade, light bulb, and a battery.  It's amazing I still have all 10 fingers!   I learned the normal 7 letters E I S H T M O.  I just never could get the rest of the alphabet.   Well, many years went by until I learned that CW was not required anymore.  I received my technician license in May 2013 and general March 2014.  I then joined the world of Volunteer Examiners. I am getting close to my extra license.

I am very active in the Four State Area Amateur Radio Club. I have chaired the election and by-laws committee. I am currently serving as Skywarn Director.  

My first radio was a Kenwood TH-D72 handheld.   I started packet, APRS and of course rag chewing.  I now have an ICOM 7200, 2x Kenwood TM-710G, Kenwood TM-V71a, Wouxun UV8D, and 2x Boafeng 82.  The ICOM 7200 is connected to a GAP Titan DX antenna.

I can honestly say that I have loved every moment.
