Ham Member Lookups: 3949


Please call me Robin. I am the retired Chief Engineer for a full power FM broadcast station KCUR-FM in Kansas City, MO.  I retired in July, 2014.  I also am retired as Chief Engineer from WNIU/WNIJ in DeKalb, IL.   I am on the Board of Directors of the Association of Saints Church Radio Amateurs (ASCRA is a non-profit organization).  I am also the immediate past President of ASCRA. 

I usually operate and sometimes call the ASCRA 20M net on Sundays (US) on 14.287MHz +/- at 21:30Z Standard Time or 20:30Z Daylight time (local time remains the same).  We (ASCRA) also have a 40M net on 7.190MHz one hour before the 20M Net for ASCRA Members in the Kansas City area.  If you check in, I look forward to meeting you.

My favorite band is 40M.  I am using an antenna I helped design.  It is an Alpha Antenna J-Pole Sr.  I have a 20M vertical loop mounted between two trees at 13 Meters.  I have a full power Palstar tuner driven by an Ameritron AL-1200 amp.  My rig is an Icom 746pro.  I have yet to find a rig that has more bang for the buck.  I also have an IC-7300 that I am getting to know.  I use a Heil PRO7 headset.  A footswitch completes the Station.

I was first licensed as WN4NZP in Memphis, TN which became WB4NZP when I upgraded to Technician from Novice.  When I moved to North Dakota I received WD0FEN which I held simultaneously with WB4NZP when this was legal.  One was licensed in Memphis, TN and the other in Bismark, ND.  I worked long and hard to get my code speed up for the 20 WPM Extra license so that when they started the Vanity Call system in 1996, I would be eligible for W0FEN.  I applied opening day and received the desired callsign.  When I renewed the w0fen vanity call for the first time,  the FCC messed up and changed my call to a non-vanity call.  It has been that way ever since.

The Family has a Club callsign of KR0SS.  I am trustee for the Cross Family Amateur Radio Club.

Besides Ham Radio and the vocation of Broadcast I enjoy camping. I walk several times a week to stay fit.

Please use eQSL or LoTW.  Please no QRZ.  If you send a card I will reciprocate.
