Ham Member Lookups: 1183

 

Hello and Thank you for visiting my page.

I am fairly new to ham radio and this multifaceted hobby. I received my technician license April 2016 and upgraded to General in June 2016. I got started late in life with ham radio, at the age of 55. It has become one of my favorite hobbies, along with boating, (including kayaking and canoeing), fishing, flying, playing bass guitar, modifying electric guitars and basses, studio recording, and performing with The Shag Doctorz, a regional Carolina Beach Music Band.

My nickname is “Skip”. I primarily play Musicman, G&L, and Fender electric basses. All of which are of the design of legendary master craftsman, Leo Fender.

 My wonderful wife is Pam, and she tolerates all the things I do. Our son is Bobby (III), who is also involved in the music biz and recording.

I have made a few SSB contacts, but I have really been enjoying making contacts on FT8, JT-65, WSPR and other digital modes. I am a member of our local amateur radio club (Spartanburg Amateur Radio Club), and the ARRL.

My station equipment: ICOM IC-718 with Signalink USB. Heil HM-1 microphone. I am using a Center fed dipole antenna in my attic for HF. Icom IC-V8000 2 meter radio. I have an J-pole antenna, also In the attic, for the 2 meter band.

Thanks to many friends and neighbors over my lifetime for encouragement and friendship. Especially, Jim Young (WA4DAW) and Bobby Abercrombie (AI4PM).
