My OMISS number is 5756, Southcars number is 8563. I retired from the Marine Corps in 1991 with 21 years of service and recently retired from the Beaufort City Police Department in Beaufort, SC as the Computer Crimes Investigator with 18 years at the age of 55. I was also a Special Deputy with the United States Marshal Service during this time. In 2015 I retired from the Beaufort County Detention Center (Social Security) to finally devote my full attention and time to wood working (scroll saw) and ham radio service.
I earned my Techncian License in 2003, upgraded to General in 2006 and finally upgraded to Extra in October of 2016. I am 65 years old and live in Beaufort, S.C. All QSL's are welcome and will be returned with one, I prefer EQSL or QRZ. My email addres is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am an active Net Control Station on both Southcars and OMISS Nets. My radio is a Yaesu FT-920 with a MFJ-4275MV 75A switching power supply into a MFJ-993 Intellituner using a Heil GM-5 Goldline boom mic. My main antenna is all band diapole up about 60 feet which is feed with ladder line, I also use a Crushcraft R5/5 band verticle (10,12,15,17,20 meters). I also have a 20/40 meter trap diapole when the conditions for my diapole are not just right on the bands. Finally, I have a 40 meter resonant diapole for specific contact with stations where I need a little help form my main antenna. I am looking to put up a 6 meter ground plane in the furture. For 2 meter operations I use a Yaesu FT-2900 feed into a 2 meter yagi. For my mobile radio, I use a Kenwood TS-2000 mounted in my 2010 Chev Colorado truck for both HF and 2 meter operations. I have a vacation home where I run a simple Icom-718 into a diapole for basic HF operations.
