Ham Member Lookups: 3460

 

HI. I am relatively new to ham radio, being licensed in 2005. I upgraded to general in the summer of 2007. Some of the things I like to do with ham radio are: field operations, CW and QRP. My shack consists of a Yaesu FT 7800 and a Yaesu FT 817nd. I also have a Yaesu FT 2800 in my Ford Ranger. What do I do to pay for all of this? I work as an electronics technican through a staffing service. I also run a small business doing light metal fabrication and welding. I am currently attending Georgia Perimeter College, studying engineering. I live with my wife and three dogs. I am a member of the Atlanta Radio Club and North Georgia QRP Club. I use the local repeaters, mainly 146.820 and 444.825 with a PL tone or 146.2. (I think that both are connected to IRLP, if not the 440 I know the 2m is. 

This is a photo of me at my bench with the FT 450 doing CW with the rest of my electronic test equipment and related junk. I also experiment with solar powered LED lighting. Oh yea, I like to build my own antennas too, except for the 2m/70cm which is a Comet GP6. I also designed my own QSL card. I QSL 99.9% of the time direct, no SASE needed. . I cut my hair and hope to up date the photo soon. The uper righthand photo is my QRP set up that consist of the FT-817 inside a homebrew metal rollcage, Hallicrafters SX-110 receiver matched with a Ramsey Kit 40 meter QRP transmiter, a MFJ Portable Antenna Tuner, a Bencher BY-1 and a homebrew straight key. Oh yea there is a FT-7800 in the photo too.

Thanks for looking me up. 73s, Billy
