Ham Member Lookups: 2559

 

I have been a Ham since 1975 thanks to my uncle, K1ZEK, who was my elmer. My first license was a novice, WN1YQI, running CW only on HF with a Heathkit DX60B transmitter, a Hammerlund HQ170 receiver, a homemade transfer switch , a Johnson Matchbox into a 80 meter dipole. I used a 100 watt light bulb as a dummy load for my station. I once made a contact on CW through the lightbulb. When I upgraded to a Technician my call changed to WA1YQI which I held for 20 years.

I upgraded to General and changed my call to W1HAF. I love tinkering with electronics, computers and trying all modes. I operate on HF, VHF, UHF, APRS, and Packet. I use VHF/UHF D-Star and DMR Mototrbo digital modes. I have recently experimented with HSMM-MESH NET putting up a node and setting up a network with two other nodes using old Linksys WRT54GS WiFi routers.

My home station is an Icom 756 proII, with a 130' centerfed dipole and Gap Challenger vertical. I use an Icom 706 with seperate hamsticks for each band when I am mobile. I enjoy DMR (Mototrbo) using a Connect Systems CS700 (UHF portable). You can learn more about DMR by going to http://www.dmr-marc.net .

See you on the air!
