About Me:

I have been a ham since 2003 but it has only been the past few years I have had HF radios. Since purchasing my first HF radio, I have greatly icreased my radio activities. In fact, I have since formed a "radio club" with two ham buddies (AI4QT and KF3FRK). Our group, the 3 Guys w/ Radios club comes together mostly to do special events. If there isn't a special event and we want to do a radio event; we just come up with one. Some of the cool things we have done recently include operating on Field Day 2016 from Monte Sano State Park and activating an NPOTA station at Russell Cave National Monument. For both of these events we used the ARRL 1x1 call of K4M. However, we only use our club call KM3GWR since we formed an offical club.

My father is also a ham operator (N8TKT) though he isn't active on HF so we only "radio" when we visit one another.

Well, here is what I have in my personal shack so far:

  • Base HF Radio (Yaesu FT-991)... and qlwo a field radio (FT-857D)
  • Dipole (off-center) G5RV-JR and portable of same antenna with tripod
  • 2M Mobile / Base (Icom V-8000)
  • 2M & 440 HT (Icom T7H) + 5 Baofeng radios + (2 HT and one mobile)
  • Shortwave Radio (Grundig 350 Deluxe)
  • Weather Radio (Radio Shack / 7 Channel)
  • Power Supplies (Gamma HPS-1a for 2M & MFJ 4125 for HF Radio)
  • Use LoTW and MacloggerDC+X
  • Ten-Tec Coffee Cup (for supply of pens)
  • Bose Companions 2 S3 desktop speakers
  • ARRL North America Map and an ARRL WAS Map
  • Frequency & Band Chart (so I know I am on a frequency I have privileges for)
  • Lots of pictures from the fun ham events I have worked!

I am a member of the Marshall Space Flight Center Amatuer Radio Club (NN4SA). I also have this club called the "3 Guys with Radios" club. We formed this club because we wanted to do some events (Field Day and NPOTA) and all of us weren't members of NN4SA. Then, it turned out that we were having great fun as a group. So we formed and offical club and started doing events using the 1x1 call of K4M. Now, we combine 3Gw/R and other club events to have fun. PS- If you are local and interested in joining 3Gw/R send an email to: KJ4MFW@gmail.com
