Hello folks !!!

My name is Norbert Nikley, but I just go by

Nick

and I am

RADIO-active !!!

About myself:

I was born and raised circa 50 kilometers north of Cologne in Germany. After a long and interesting accounting career, I immigrated to the United States in 1993 with lots of good hopes for the future. I am very proud of my two daughters and three grandchildren. My landscape business is blooming, sometimes decomposing and then reemerging from the soil again.

 

RADIO-active:

In early 2013, I became involved in Ham-Radio - earned my technician license and upgraded to general class shortly thereafter. It is such an addictive hobby to me - so addictive, that some of my other hobbies (chess, mineral collecting and wood-turning), just to name a few, came to a big slow-down.

I am not a big contester and digital modes are not my cup of tea yet (except DSTAR), but I do like to rag-chew on a daily basis on all my available bands. It doesn't matter to me if I transmit to somebody in town or half way around this beautiful planet as long as I have a nice and sophisticated conversation with another ham.

Designing and building antennas is extremely fascinating to me and my ultimate goal is to learn CW. In the future, I would also like to look into satellite-tracking with everything around it. Another part of the hobby I am really into it is TeleType (TTY). I restored a few machines and play with them whenever time is not my enemy (model 14, 15, 28, Iron Horse, WU1-A). If you have some old TTY equipment you like to donate, please contact me: creativegardening@hotmail.com

I am a proud member of GARS (Gwinnett Amateur Radio Society) and like to thank all these good folks from that club for all the help and support I received so far. This very active club counts close to 300 members and was honored by the DAYTON HAMVENTION@ as the "CLUB OF THE YEAR 2014" !!!   WOW

In early 2015 I became the club's program manager, trying to deliver lots and lots of fun to our members with very sophisticated presentations from various ham radio geeks and propeller-heads. wink

 

A big "thank you" goes to my friend, pal and workshop buddy Randy who is always a great mentor when it comes to the electro technical world.

 

More info:

Looking into different logging-software's and designing my personal QSL-card is still on my to-do-list. Previous call-sign was KK4TPW.

 

Till then and 73's
