Hello All, as of 12/19/2017, my callsign is KJ7WT. I chose this callsign to honor the memory of my son, Jeremy Wilson Telling, who died of cancer in 2012, and whose 40th birthday would have been yesterday. I don't know how long it will take for QRZ.com to update their database, but the change is now official!

I've been a ham since 1969 (Tech license, originally, with one small break in about 1970-something) but haven't been very active, although I had a burst of activity when I received my General in 1983, using an old Yaesu FT-101. After some of the major weather emergencies hit the USA, I realized that it would be good to have some emergency communications capability that is not totally dependent upon the power grid, so now I have an IC-718 in the "shack". I can run a long time from a lead-acid battery and solar panels to recharge! I like to work PSK31, JT65, and some SSB   I was the senior electronics engineer for the ACCEL Performance Group (who now owns ACCEL, Mallory & Mr. Gasket), and designed high-performance electronic ignition systems and related compnents, but now I am a consultant/contract engineer after an aquisition by a competitor resulted in my being "downsized".

The rig is an Icom IC-718, with a homebrew 40-6m off-center fed "Windom-style" antenna. I also occasionally use a Baofeng HT to access local repeaters, and I'm learning to use IRLP and Echolink. I recently joined TARA, the Tahoe Amateur Radio Association, and have enjoyed working some of the many cycling events around Lake Tahoe.

I have also started trying DMR digital radio, and learning the quirks and programming tricks. Interesting mode, not perfect, but has some great possibilities. I presently have Tytera MD-380 and Connect Systems CS-580 UHF radios, and I enjoy using them both.

NOTE!!! From 11/18/2017 thru 11/25/2017 I will be in operating from Portland, OR, USA or possibly from coastal Tillmook, OR, USA.

UPDATE!!! As of 10/2017, I have added an Icom IC-7300 to may radios, and have been having a lot of fun with it, especially using FT-8 mode running WSJT-X software. With the bands being as fickle as they are now, the digital modes really shine.

UPDATE: 4/2017 I added a bitx40 QRP SSB transceiver to my equipment list. This is a pretty cool little rig!

UPDATE: Please check out my webpage at  davetelling.altervista.org and my YouTube channel, N6AFV

UPDATE: 6/2016 I joined the Sierra Nevada Amateur Radio Society (SNARS). I am also an ARRL member.

UPDATE!!!! As of November 15, 2014, I am now an Extra Class Ham!
