Hello,

I was first licensed in the late 1970's as KA0MCS while stationed in South Dakota while in the Air Force and received vanity callsign NA5AA in 2011

Retired after 20 years in the Air Force as a B-52 gunner

Worked for Ft Worth Police department as reserve officer for 10 years

Retired from Lockheed after 25 years. Started with writing F-16 technical publications and eventually moved into the IT world as a Solaris system administrator. I later moved into the computer security area, and network operations as a firewall administrator.

Enjoy all the digital modes like RTTY, PSK, JT65, JT9, and digital SSTV using EasyPal software.

My radio HF is a ICOM IC-9100. I use a Heil PR-40 microphone for my occassional SSB contacts.

I enjoy D-Star and have the following D-STAR equipment: ICOM IC-9100, IC-51A, a DV-Dongle, and a UHF DVAP. I use a DHAP to power the DVAP.

I maintain a D-Star 70cm repeater and gateway. I originally bought the D-Star repeater and gateway computer and donated it to the Hood County Amateur Radio Club  (HCARC) in Granbury Texas. The repeater / gateway callsign is W5HCT which is the call sign for the Hood County Amateur Radio Club. The repeater frequency is 441.350Mhz +5.000. The repeater is located in the Hood County Sheriff's radio room and has a antenna on the Sheriff's 100 foot tower.

I'm active on DMR and have a several of DMR handhelds. A Tytera MD-390, Motorola SL7550 HT, XPR7550 HT, and a RFinder UHF DMR / Analog HT. I  have a Motorola SLR 5700 DMR repeater located on the Hood County Sheriff's radio room and on his tower up at about 65 feet.  I also have various types of hotspots like a DV4Mini, a DV-Mega board, a SharkRF OpenSpot and a BlueStack Mico + board for use with a DV-Mega and the BlueDV Android App on my Asus Zen 8 tablet. I recently got the IOS version of the BlueStack board called the iBlueStack that works with my Apple IOS devices

The Granbury DMR repeater (NA5AA) information is TX 443.9000 RX 448.9000 CC 1 and is on the Brandmeister network.

Local 2 and Texas (3148) are static on time slot 2. Any other Brandmeister talk groups are available as PTT on time slot 1. Talk groups like North America Calling (91), WorldWide Calling (93), DCI Bridge (3100), TAC 1, TAC 2, TAC 3, TAC 310, TAC 311, TAC 312, and any other talk groups are all available on time slot 1.

My antennas are:

A Diamond Antenna F718A UHF Base Vertical Antenna for the DMR repeater and SteppIR BigIR vertical for HF. 

I recently became interested in the Yaesu Fusion and Wires-X mode. I have a Yaesu FT2-Dr and a FTM-100 and a HRI-200 and have setup a Wire-X node in Granbury Texas on 442.000 simplex.  My Wires-X Room is called Granbury-TX and is #40083

I live in Granbury Texas which is about 30 miles south west of Ft Worth Texas. Granbury is located in Hood County.
