Ham Member Lookups: 48957


Hello There,

If I have worked you I am glad that I had the chance to meet you. If we have not worked each other yet I look forward to meeting you on the air.

A little about me:

I am a 70 year old, retired educator, having taught in the Los Angeles Unified School District, and worked in the education department of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

I was first licensed in 1988 as a novice (KB6YUU). Learning Morse was difficult. I tried 4 times, over 15 years without success. In 1988 I got my first hearing aid, and suddenly I could pass 5 words a minute, and I got my license! I upgraded to Technician the next year (N6TGZ).

I knew I would never be able pass 13 words a minute, so I did not try. Eighteen years later, I found that the FCC dropped the code requirement, and 6 weeks later I was a General. About 4 weeks after that, I passed my Extra exam. I changed to a vanity call (N7IY), reflecting my new Oregon location in 2010.

This is an image of my old shack (I moved April 5, 2017).  An image of the new shack will be up, as soon as I get it setup.

I have a very modest radio shack. My radio is an Icom 718, feeding an Alpha Delta DX-CC antenna. For digital I use a Signalink USB interface. My computers are old iMac, G4's (purchased used for $25.00 each), running cocoModem. I  have added a Compaq laptop (again, purchased used, for $25.00) to run the "JT" suite of programs.

I am very active in Amateur Radio.
