Ham Member Lookups: 6456


I have been an amateur radio operator since 1984, with the Novice Class in California, then gaining my General in 1987 in Nevada. I moved to central Idaho, in 1998, where I now live.

My first interest in radio was listening to my Father talk to Australia, and other places in the late 1960's from an old radio in his shop. I don't think he was a ham, but he sure talked everywhere. 

My second real interest in radio was as a Security Police officer in the USAF between 1974 and 1980 where I worked in the Wing Command post and got to listen to the B-52's on patrol talking back to our base.

I am involved in HF NVIS communications, and work locally on VHF and UHF when I can, depending on projects.

I also am involved in an ever evolving DMR project in Central Idaho and can be found on TG31160, ARES-IDAHO and Idaho statewide, TG3116 from time to time.

I have an assortment of equipment on HF at my house, both amateur and commercial and operate both mobile and portable .

I use an old FT-1000D for my primary HF radio at home for SSB, and also have an Icom IC-7300 on various digital modes direct connected to an HP computer.

My mobile HF radio is a Kenwood TS-480HX to a Hi-Q Military antenna mounted in a Ford F-250 Super Duty.

I am a member of the Central Idaho Amateur Radio Club, as well as the trustee for our club repeaters, based out of McCall, Idaho. Our club participates in numerous public service events throughout the year including parades, back country extreme foot races, bicycle races, and has an operating ARES program.

(Refer to www.ciarc.org for information) The club website is extensive, with resources, links to solar weather, and other areas of interest. I am also the administrator for the club call sign: KC7MCC.


The 147.020, PL: 100 is located on No Business Mtn, and is our hub repeater, linked to 146.900, PL: 123, on Brundage Mtn, via 900 mhz, as well as another low level VHF repeater south of Cascade, Id. These repeaters are also linked to the Boise County Amateur Radio club repeater on an on call basis at 145.310 on Pilot Peak for Search and Rescue or other emergency situations.

The above repeaters have a wide area coverage in the west central mountains of Idaho and into eastern Oregon. Please feel free to use them if you are in the area.

I have a Hytera RD982 Repeater, on DMR,  UHF, TX: 444.125, RX: 449.125, CC1, TS-1, located south of McCall, Id about 2 miles.

This DMR repeater is primarily fixed on ARES-Idaho, TG31160. Feel free to check in with our local group here in the West Central Mountains of Idaho. Refer to the website: www.ciarc.org for details on that repeater, and other repeaters it is clustered with.

I am a retired career law enforcement officer with 32 years of service and still work with the local public safety and Search and Rescue organizations.
