Just another day in Paradisecool


I will be QRV from DU land on OC-042, OC-128, OC-129, OC-130, OC-244, and maybe other islands as time permits. This is a vacation so I will operate when I can.Tenative dates are? I plan to operate on as many bands as possible, mainly CW, then SSB, with some Digital modes last.

I became interested in Amateur Radio mainly to communicate with SKYWARN spotters while living in Colorado Springs, Colorado for over 6 years. I have always had a passion for violent thunderstorms, and chasing them. Colorado does get it's share of storms, hail, and tornadoes.

The truck is a Bronco II "BUILT" and painted in memory of those who perished on 9/11, sporting 38.5" tires, 12" lift, Dana 44's locked F&R, a 4 link solid axle conversion, 280HP V6, and numerous other mods. This picture is from 1 of the many 14,000'+ elevation mountians I've climbed, too bad I did not have my Ham Ticket then, it would have been nice to operate from some of the highest locations in the USA. I have since moved back to Michigan where I was born, raised, and now operate.

I aquired my Tech license in January of 2005, my General in June of 2006, and finally my Extra Class in August 2006. I reached 100 DXCC contacts in 65 days on SSB, and 80 days on CW and now working on the Digital modes, my 100th SSB DXCC contact was the same day I passed the Extra Class exam. Learning CW was a real chore for me, but if I can do it, anyone can.

Meeting fellow Ham's from around the world has become almost an obsession for me sometimes staying up for several days during Field Day and Contests. One thing I find exciting is the fact that one never knows who will answer your CQ, and from what part of the world they come from.

I have been running an Icom IC-7000, IC-706MKIIG or a ICOM IC-737 @ 100 watts or less with a 80M Delta Loop @ 80' for 10-80, an Inverted "L" @ 80' for 10-160 or various verticals. Recently brought a Heathkit SB200 amp and SA2060 transmatch back to life performing various mods and replacing worn out components so occasionally I also use those. An ICOM IC207H or IC7000 into a 170w RF Concepts amp to a 8 element quad, Cushcraft 17B2 or a Diamond X500 @50' for VHF/UHF.

Sometimes I am mobile so listen for the weak signals hi hi smiley A Icom V8000 into a Diamond SG7900A mounted through the roof for 2m mobile and a ICOM IC-706MKIIG with a screwdriver in the truck for HF.

I am usually in the CW portion working on 5 Band DXCC, but will also be heard on phone or the Digital Modes.

73 Catch you on the airwaves & GOOD DX !
