Ham Member Lookups: 6694


Greetings and Viva Las Vegas!

Current rig is a Flex 6500 into a 2 element, 4 band Hy-Gain beam and/or an Alpha wire.  I'm re-building my gobox around an IC-7300 for HF and an IC-207H for VHF/UHF.

I recently returned from Puerto Rico as one of the "Force of 50" hams that deployed to assist the Red Cross and disaster relief efforts.  That was the experience of a lifetime and, unlike a few others who have been very public with their complaints and issues, I am taking my experiences and lessons learned and I'm applying them to the EMCOM side of the hobby to help the next deployment go smoother.

Among other things that I enjoy in the hobby, I really like going portable QRP to work locations as a part of the Parks On The Air and World Wide Flora and Fauna (POTA/WWFF).  Getting outdoors with our dogs to enjoy what mother nature has but before us is an awesome experience!  I've also started using DMR and DSTAR.  I have two DV hotspots running the Pi-Star image, one on DSTAR, one on DMR and it's pretty cool making contacts arond the world, even if only a short part of the path is via RF.

Finally, I continue to make progress on becoming a competent and confident CW operator and I really appreciate all of the other operators out there who are willing to slow down for us new guys so that we can continue to learn and build confidence.

I'm a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and my post is in Beatty, NV.  As a retired U.S. Navy Master Chief Petty Officer, I wish all of my ham radio shipmates the very best and I look forward to working you sometime soon!

Thanks and 73,

Craig McVeay
