Ham Member Lookups: 409

 

July/August 2017.  It is amazing what you can do with 100 watts and a dipole at 50 feet!. In 10 days I've logged Australia, Hawaii, Canada, Saint Croix, and Portugal !  

I was originally licensed as a Novice WA4WRH in 1978 in Auburn AL.  My first transmitter was a one-tube 5-watt set built with parts from an old television.  I also built a Heathkit HW-16. 

I took a long break before getting my General license and recently got active again.  I joined the local ARES group and worked Field Day 2017, which was a blast.  Also, I helped start a new ham radio club in my area.

My station includes an ICOM 756PRO, Yaesu FT-77, Drake TR-4C, and Kenwood T-599/R-599.  The V/UHF gear is Yaesu FT-8800, ICOM 92AD, Kenwood TM-255A, and Regency HR-212.  The older equipment was handed down to me from the estate of W5VFF (SK) in Jasper, Texas.

My antenna farm is sparse right now, just a dipole connected to a Dentron Super Tuner for HF, and a 4-element beam and Ringo Ranger II for VHF.  I'm working on a beverage for 160M.  

I'm also helping the local science museum get their radio telescope up and running.  They have a Harris 36 foot parabolic dish that was donated by the former user, plus an LNB and receiver for the 1420 MHz hydrogen line and computer software that was donated by a local university.  Maybe they'll let me use it for EME some day in the future.
