Hello and welcome!

My QTH is in Whitesone, NY and due to the covenant restrictions I only used to do 440 from there, as it was the only band that had enough penetration to allow good comm to repeaters, both HAM and GMRS. Anything else being too noisy.

Or so I thought and, as you can see from the Shack picture below, things are changing and I've been working on getting me some HF going. ^_^

I run a TYT TH-9000 70cm radio with a Sirio GP-430 ground plane antenna in the attic (very small antenna but very good performance), paired with an AnyTone QDM-01 Desk Base Microphone.

Also acquired a Kenwook TS-480SAT for HF along with a BuddyStick antenna I'm setting up when needed out of the apartment window. Still gotta tie up some things, getting the PC Control unit and SDR all in sync and perhaps add some of that studio audio into the radio. Time to time I guess, but it's a start.

QTH setup

I do most of my "radio-ing" from my mobile, which sports a Uniden Bearcat 980SSB with a Sirio Turbo 5000 10/11meter antenna, a Kenwood TM-V71A dual band (2m/440) radio paired with a Diamond S&R dual band NMO Antenna to match, as well as a Yaesu FT-857D with an ATAS 120a antenna for HF which seems to work pretty well on 40m and 20m.

Most of the time you will find me on the Bronx700 GMRS repeater, on WB2HWW, W2VL, W2ABC's repeaters and on CB (ch31). Also try to check in on the NY District ARES Net every Monday at 8:30pm on the W2ABC repeater, as well as on the NTS net (NY4Z) every day at 8pm EST.

I like all type of radio comms and becoming a HAM is just like continuing education, mastering the art. ^_^

I'm into tech and bulding/fixing stuff. You can catch some of my sheananigans on YouTube.

One of many projects I've been working on is a tiny portable/emcomm pack I can toss in the trunk without much thought and survive the trip. The box includes everything (Battery, dual band radio (10W), Volt/Amp meters, 12V cigarette/USB charger, microphone, 3ft coax, programming cable, manual, power connectors, LED lighting and antenna mount - velcros into the back of the box). Check out the pictures below... what do you think? Please leave a comment on YouTube. Feedback is always welcome. ^_^

Latest things I've taken part of was building a few EmComm packs for a local radio club and other mobile/portable packs (see the pics below). I am now also the Emergency Coordinator for Queens County ARES in NY, and that has brought a whole new perspective into "Hamming" :)

Thanks for stopping by and catch you on the air!
