Ham Member Lookups: 4928

 

Free counters!

Hello and thanks for the lookup. I'm a relatively new ham, receiving my Tech in 2009, General in 2010, and Extra in December 2011. I always wanted to be a ham as a young boy but then high school came and I went one way and ham radio went the other.
 
I early retired in 2002 from a career in software development and management and after that stayed busy building a couple of personal homes. In the summer of 2009, I needed something interesting to keep me busy. Wondering what to do, ham radio came to mind. The rest is now history, even though I have started 50 years late!
 
My interests initially led me into the digital modes with PSK31 and a little JT65, Olivia, and RTTY. I find it challenging to identify the various digital sounds and then work a call. I like working HF contests, all of which are very enjoyable (received my DXCC and WAS awards in March 2012).
 
In August 2012, my application for a new 1 x 2 call sign was approved and so my initial call of KF7GNI is now retired.
 
In the summer of 2015 I moved to and built a new home near Sisters, Oregon on eight acres.  Wow, no CCR's or HOA's...how cool is that?  So, up went the new HDX-572 motorized tower.  I'm looking forward to some new contacts!
