Ham Member Lookups: 11598



Hi, I started on my ham license in 1981, but never had enough time to master CW while in college.  So after college and 30 years of Army / Army Reserve I got my technician and general license on the same night (Nov 2015).

My goal was to get my general license so I can operate an ICOM M-802, marine radio, on a sailboat when offshore.

Also, I'm a private pilot since 2000, currently flying a Tecnam Sierra (LSA) out of Warrenton, VA (KHWY).

Below is a pic of my basic HAM Shack and my Yaesu FT-991 radio.

I bought a Cobra UltraLite Kid multi-band antenna, about 41 feet long.  This model antenna is good for 40m -10m.  I can receive on 80m & 160m, but I can't transmit, the tuner can't handle the short antenna.  The antenna only weighs four pounds.  Below are pics of the antenna.


Below is a pic of the ICOM IC-738 radio (my first HF radio, I borrowed from my local ham club for a month).
