Go by  "Tim"        

I've loved radio since I was 13 years old. My first 11 meter radio was a Halicrafters CB3A. I had two Uncles who were also Hams that influenced me to take up the hobby.  I introduced my son Trent Pierce  to amatuer radio at age 10.  He is an adult now and upgraded to General Class in June 2016. He recently exchanged his call KC5PKX for my favorite uncle's call N5NXZ to carry on the family tradition of amatuer radio, in his honor.  Together we studied for, and upgraded to Amatuer Extra in July 2017.

Currently I operate a Yaesu FT-991 into a 40-80m Diople inverted V, or a horizontally mounted MFJ-1796 rotatable Multiband Dipole Antenna and enjoy working all HF Bands.  I operate my Yaesu FT-8900 for VHF/UHF.  I also have my uncles old Kenwood TS-820S that I fire up from time to time.

My Son and I occassionally will set up remote stations in State Parks or Backpack off the beat and path.  Our station powered by a 4S Lithium-Polymer battery with a Buddistick, or a dipole hung from a tree branch.  

I also enjoy working PSK, FT8 and JT65 Digital Modes, when phone voice opportunities are limited.

Just a few of my hobbies to enjoy in retirement. '73
