Below: Sharing a meal with Jimmy and Joyce.


I became a Ham operator in 2000 and used my Tech permit on 2 meter FM first using an IC2100 mobile radio. Using a DIY homemade Yagi I was able to use 2 meters direct up to 160 miles on SSB with a Kenwood 700A radio at 10 watts. Also with just a handheld 2 meter radio I did talk from Apple Valley to Needles, that was one of the neatest things.

I still want to work the Space Station someday. smiley


In 2007 I upgraded to General and use the permit mostly on 40 and 75 meters. Just so that you will not think I did this by myself, my mentors were Jerry Davis and also Bill Good of Henry Radio. My best contacts on HF are Italy on 40 meter SSB most any evening talking to Roberto on his 4 element Yagi and on my station using a home made CCD wire antenna. Also on 15 meters SSB I am quite proud of working Antarctica. I love building wire antennas and making them work.


One of the cool things in my life on Ham Radio is Field Day. I very much love Field Day. This operation made me a better Service Control Operator on the 40-meter Nets I work. Writing down call signs and hearing them, after a Field Day I was a lots better SCO than before. Why, because I did learn so many things while operating a radio, logging, having noise around me, co-channel problems, how to deal with problems while on the air etc. I had no Idea of what this really took, before I did it the right way on Field day one year.



As per radio clubs I have been in, Quincy Illinois ARC and Lebanon TN ARC.


My current station is a Flex 3000 SDR radio as seen below:





Myback upradio is a Kenwood TS570.
