Ham Member Lookups: 3150

 

MORE PHOTOS BELOW!  I have been licensed since Apr 11 2009, my interest in HAM radio began during my fifth year driving semi trucks (over the road). At the time I was using a Ranger 2950, 10meter radio modified to operate the 11meter band. Suffice to say that during one of my excursion into the usb portion of the bands, I had a chance encounter with another truck driver, who being licensed, proceeded to run down the rules and regulations of the airwaves; Not long afterward, I decided to pursue my FCC Radio Amateur radio license. April 2009, I received my Technician license. One year later, Apr 2010, passed the General Class.  Then using call sign KB3SQH!

I am a Veteran, (Army-Supply/Logistics and Transportation) and served in Germany from Oct 1981- 1983, with 3/84th Field Artillery unit, a Pershing Missile unit then located in both Neckarsulm and Heilbronn Germany.  From 1983-1984 was with the 179th Military Intelligence Detachment at Ft. Benning GA, returning to Germany in latter part of 1984 with the 53rd Transportation Battalion located in Kaiserslautern Germany from 1984 to Mar 1988.  While ending my military service in 1988, I remained in Germany until 2004.  I have travelled all over Europe including twice visiting then Soviet occupied Berlin & East Germany (1986 & 1987) and I continue to visit Germany at least bi-yearly.  Recently I have traveled to Guangzhou China (Oct 1-Nov1 2011) and again in Mar 20-Apr 23 2013.  I had a wonderful experience and was able to meet with various factories and suppliers; unfortunately I was unable to establish any contact with the local Amateur Radio Operators or Clubs in Guangzhou.  Maybe on the next trip!

When I am out of the truck (4-6 months of the year); I enjoy operating on 17- 40m HF Pedestrian Mobile using a alicepack frame modified to hold the Yaesu FT 857D mounted inside a modified Rubbermaid trash container. An LDG SWR/PWR meter MFJ external speaker and 12V 10amp battery complete this set up.  (As shown in photo's below are):

WOLFRIVERCOIL(dot)com, the SilverBullet 1000, heavy duty antenna spring, ALPHAANTENNAS MilitaryWhipAntenna, a 13foot sectional fold over antenna.  Power output varies from 5watts to 45watts equaling to 3-4 hours of operating time. 

My mobile HF equipment consists of the - Kenwood D710A aprs, both Kenwoods 480HX & SAT, Yaesu FT 857D, , Cobra 19 & 29 cb radios, TH F6a all band ht, Kenwood D72A aprs ht, AvMAP G5 & G6 APRS GPS Navigators and an assortment of handheld radios.
