Amateur Radio is a fascinating and wonderful hobby, in addition to enhancing the art of communication; Amateur Radio plays a vital role in promoting goodwill among people of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, bringing them closer together. Radio Amateurs also help provide critical emergency communication in disaster relief, enhancing the role of first responders and aiding in search and rescue operations.

I was licensed as a Technician Class in March 1999, with the call: KF6VMN. By November of the same year, I upgraded to Extra Class successfully completing a 20 WPM CW Morse Code test and got the call AD6JI. Shortly after, I decided to adopt the vanity call N1CY.

I was both inspired and encouraged by great people, with big hearts and bigger smiles; to strive and become more involved in making the world a better place, by contributing positively as a member of the Amateur radio community.

I am a big fan of Yaesu Fusion digital voice and data C4FM. Running my own WiresX node 11041 from home on a UHF simplex channel. Typically connect to WB6AJE LA Repeater on Mt. Wilson, the WiresX room is 21042. The repeater will do both digital & analog and its on 445.540- with an analog tone of 123.0. I also connect to the Socal Link room 21047. You can listen to live streaming audio from the Fusion repeater and the node on its pair by clicking here: LA C4FM REPEATER

Also sorta active on DMR and monitor the SoCal talk group on occasions.

Aside from Yaesu Fusion fun, I also enjoy being a member of the DARN system, a series of RF linked analog repeaters in full duplex. The network covers from San Diego down south, to the Mojave desert northeast, and Santa Barbara northwest. More info on DARN.ORG.

Other interests and modes of operation are HF phone mainly from the mobile, PSK 31 and CW on the HF, VHF and UHF bands from the shack. In addition, thanks to David WA6TWF, I have access to an HF/VHF Remote Base station controlled by a UHF FM Repeater on the 440 MHz band. The Remote Base covers 80 through 2 meters in LSB/USB, AM & FM. I also use David's D-Star repeater on Pleasant Peak,  often connect to Reflector 70B or 12A. So pretty much got all the Digital voice and Data modes; DMR, D-Star and Yaesu Fusion covered.

My first Field Day experience was with the club N6ME in June 2000, operating as a 7 Alpha station, and we won the category by a wide margin.
