Hello, my name is Eric. KJ4YZI
Visit my YouTube page dedicated to Ham radio.. Search "Hamradioconcepts" on youtube or google and make sure to subscribe and thumbs up on the videos..
I am active on all bands from 80 meters through 70cm., AM/FM/SSB/PSK/RTTY/Digital/APRS/DMR/Dstar/Fusion and more..
My equipment changes every day. Here is what i use now..
Yaesu FT-450, Hy-Gain AV-680 9 band HF vertical, MFJ-1835 Cobweb 5 band, MFJ loop, various homemade wire dipoles.
60 watt VHF for the shack, Wouxun KG-UV950P quad band in the vehicle 2/6/10/70cm with a Diamond 8900 quad band antenna. MFJ-993 autotuner, MFJ power supply. Icom ID-51 50th anniversary D-star, Tyt MD380,390,MD-398,Wouxun KG-D901 and Baofeng DM-5R+. Yaesu FT1DR System fusion handheld. I do own a Fusion repeater.
I love building antennas and experimenting. I have made multiple homemade sound card interfaces for PSK etc. and some people laugh when i tell them about my designs, but IT WORKS.
I am also active on PSK31 20m/10m and other digi modes, via soundcard interface. i am active on the local repeaters, i also like to connect to BBS nodes, winlink gateways, either by a homemade soundcard interface through the handheld and a laptop, or over HF. i like doing HF email and other weatherfax and such on HF. keeps it all interesting., working on SSTV over HF now. Satellites are always one of my favorite modes. I have worked SO-50 a few times in the past, it is fun. I have relayed an APRS packet off the ISS, just to say i did.
I have a Wonderful wife, Michele, and 2 boys.. Austin and Paxton. Michele is 41, Austin is 18, Paxton is 16 ..
The picture above is old and will be updated soon, a couple homemade computers and dual monitors.. Blah blah, it changes all the time...
Im also a computer tech junkie, i have never bought a computer from a store in my life, always built my own. Never called a repairman, always repair myself.
Current build is AMD FX 8350 8 core @ 4.4ghz, 16gb DDR-3 12800 memory, 256gb SSD, 2 Radeon 6950 in crossfire, Antek Kuhler water cool.
I Love riding dirtbikes, anything fast. Driving anything supercharged or Turbocharged.
I am right down the road from KI4LUYankee Mr.Patrick, the one who got me into it all.
Thats about it. I'm out here just enjoying the radio world when i can. You will never hear me criticize anyone out there, thats not what it is about. In fact, if you are rude about anything, i probably ignored you..
