Ham Member Lookups: 1984

 

My first exposure to Ham Radio was back in 1973 when a friend of my family helped me with some science projects. Perry, W5VVA (SK), was one of the most energetic and continually happy men I've ever known.

I got my Novice while attending Texas A&M and studying Electrical Engineering. I let my novice lapse and other interests and demands consumed all my time. Fast forward to 2010. I decided to get my license again. I got my Technician and soon found out about Perry's passing. That was the motivation to get my General and Extra. Sort of a memorial, as silly as that may sound. I also happend upon one of Perry's old rigs, a Kenwood TS-520SE. What a beautiful piece of equipment!

I now have a Hustler 5BTV vertical that works wonderfully.

Update June 2017:

I just traded my TS-590SG for an IC-7300 at Main Trading Company (Thank you Richard!).  This is a MAGNIFICENT radio.  Oh my!!  I can pull out stations that I could not hear before.

 

Update October 2015:

I won a Kenwood TS-590SG during this weekend's hamfest in Paris, Texas.  Richard at Main Trading Compamy is the best!

I'm loving my new Kenwood!

Hope to hear you on the air.

 

Update 2012:

I bought a Yaesu FT-817 from a friend and that is what I use most of the time now.  It truly is "the most fun you can have with your clothes on".

So, now I run 5 watts and have made SSB contacts in Brasil, Wales, and Croatia!

I am the luckiest man in the world in that I have the best wife known to man. She is also a Ham (W8GIN).
