Ham Member Lookups: 12218

 

My interest in amateur radio began in fourth grade when I saw my first amateur radio station and got to speak over the air with a ham hundreds of miles away. I convinced my mother that I needed a Hallicrafters shortwave receiver for my birthday and I loved listening to hams, broadcast stations in other countries, those mysterious numbers stations and even got to hear Sputnik's cw transmissions.

First licensed in 1965 as WN0LHR I quickly fell in love with working DX. My college funds were diverted to purchase Collins S-Line equipment with a 30L-1 linear amp and with my tower (and a new Corvette convertible in 1967) I was sure life couldn't get much better!

Ham radio got me my first job as a radio DJ at KQRS in 1966 (the guy who hired me was a ham), where I was the first one to play rock music, then on to Minnesota Public Radio, Cities 97, Colorado Public Radio and KRPM in Seattle - for a total of 17 years on the air.

My present ham equipment consists of an Icom IC-7300 transceiver, G5RV antenna up 20 feet, a Timewave ANC-4 noise filter, a LDG Z-100 Plus antenna tuner, and a Begali paddle. I use HRD 6.3, WSJT-X, Fldigi, and WSPR for digital modes and a Icom IC-208H for mobile use but I rarely drive.

Many, many thanks to Allan Klein, W0NLY, who kindly came over several times to help put put my wire antenna back up in the trees (someone keeps cutting it down) .... there are great Hams helping other Hams and Allen W0NLY is one of them. 

Also many thanks to Don Hobson, KB9UMT, who has worked tirelessly over many months to help me sell my 25 year old ham gear so I could buy the amazing Icom IC-7300, and install, setup and learn to use software for several digital modes.
