About KV3S

Welcome!

My proper name is Marlin, but prefer my nickname "Loon".   I was licensed Technician class in March 2009, upgraded to General class in June 2009, and Extra class in January 2010.  Prior Call Signs:  KB3SLP (Original Issue), W3MAT (June 2009-Nov 2015), AA3MT (Nov 2015-Aug 2016), KV3S (Aug 2016-Present).   



QTH:

Home is the rural farmlands of Union County Pennsylvania in the village of Laurelton (FN10jv), which is 35 miles east of State College, 30 miles south-west of Williamsport (Little League World Series), or 45 miles north of Harrisburg, the commonwealth's capital.

In the shack I run the Icom IC-746PRO into the Extreme Dream Beam antenna (photos below), and an Icom 2100H on a home built copper J-Pole.

In the mobile is an Icom 2800 (2M/440) on a Diamond 2M/440 antenna.

I am most active on the following local repeaters:  Sunbury (146.650- PL 107.2), Middleburg (146.820- PL 100.0), and Danville (145.290- PL 100.0), but can also be found on Simplex 146.520.  Recently I discovered the Wide Area Network Repeater System and enjoy meeting other hams throughout the commonwealth on this network.  

Satellites:

I enjoy making contacts on LEO FM satellites; Saudisat 1C (SO-50), LilcacSat-2, and Fox-1A (AO-85).  Setups are Yaesu FT-60R's with Elk and Arrow Antennas. You may view satellite videos on my YouTube channel by clicking here ...
