Ham Member Lookups: 4749

 

We live just outside Weatherford, Texas a city of 25,000 population located about 25 miles west of Fort Worth, Texas. We live on approximately 3 acres in a small deed restricted subdivision which somewhat limits my ability to have a large antenna farm.

The primary rig is a Kenwood TS-590SG feeding an Elecraft KPA500 amplifier. The TS-590SG DRV output feeds an SDR-PLAY SDR which adds a panadapter capability to the Kenwood. The back-up HF/VHF/UHF/DSTAR rig is an Icom IC-7100.

My alternate/QRP rig is an Elecraft KX3. Finally, I have a Kenwood TS-480SAT networked to a RemoteRig Box set so that I can access the TS-480SAT while at our vacation home in Colorado via the web.

Here are a few photos of the shack.

My antennas are modest to comply with our community restrictions. The primary antenna is a 31 foot vertical wire antenna supported by a Jackite fiberglass pole. The antenna is hidden in the trees at the back of our property. I have a Buxcomm windom in the attic as a back-up antenna.

I became interested in Ham Radio and Civil Engineering as a teenager during our numerous family visits to a Civil Engineer and amateur radio operator friend of the family - WD5CFB - who had a shortwave radio in his garage.

I am retired from a long-time position as a Civil Engineer for a National Architecture-Engineering consulting firm based in Fort Worth.

I became licensed in 1991 and am currently a General Class.

Over the last year I have developed an interest in the digital modes, in particular DMR. I can usually be found listening on DMR to BM 3148 via a variety of hotspots. I am also testing a Yaesu System Fusion node at my home.

My wife Kathy and I have 4 children and 4 grandchildren. Besides amateur radio, I enjoy cycling, golf , hiking and photography.

 

 

 

I will send you my sunset QSL (shown above) upon receipt of your QSL. I also upload my logbook (on an somewhat regular basis) to eQSL.cc, LOTW, and QRZ.

I look forward to talking to you!

Finally, here is a live photo of Mt. Ptarmigan from the front of our vacation home in Silverthorne, Colorado.
