Ham Member Lookups: 1514

 

This looks like a good place for an antenna!

​A relatively new ham that tends to dive into hobbies head first to see what is there. Currently using a mix of iCom, Yaesu and Wouxun radios to get aquainted with the hobby, with the favorites being the Icom 7300 for HF, and Yaesu 400-FTM's for mobile work, and the Yaesu FT2DR for HT. 

I sometimes run from my home, but quite often I am running portable from a campsite using a Buddipole in most cases. I was able to hit over 4800 miles on the day this was taken at Jim Hogg Park at Lake Georgetown.

While my interest in HAM goes way back, the primary motivator for getting my Tech & General tickets was joining ADRN and finding out they have a HAM group for providing disaster communications. ADRN is made up of churches local to Austin TX that want to help in times of disaster, and this was a perfect fit. in 2015/2016, ADRN was very busy with two major floods, and one major fire. While I did not get involved in the fire, I did assist in flood relief for the first one, and participated in disaster assessment teams for the second. The need is real.

In August of 2016, Louisiana was hit hard with floods, and I spent a week in Denham Springs running net control. I ended up using a pair of FTM-400s for that run.

I am also active in the Williamson County Amature Radio Club and President of Austin Jeep Exclusive where my hope is to get the off road wheeling club interested in HAM as well. Never a Dull moment!

 Antenna hunting. Nope, not here!

Roads?....Where were going, we don't need roads!
