I earned my Technician class license at the F.C.C. field office in San Francisco in 1975 and upgraded my privileges to General class in 1980.

I have been a member of the West Valley Amateur Radio Association (http://www.wvara.org) since 1981 and have served as President, Director, Net Manager, Meeting Greeter and others.

Proprietor of the "Open Repeaters in the Santa Clara Valley" page (http://www.accesscom.com/~dave6592/scv-rptrs.html). I hope you find this information to be useful when you visit our area.

Proprietor of the "Simplex Frequencies in the Santa Clara Valley" page (http://www.accesscom.com/~dave6592/simplex.html). I hope you find this information to be useful if you live here or when you visit our area.

I operate on six meters, two meters, two-twenty-two and four-forty FM while mobile in the San Jose area as well as from the home QTH, where I also have capabilities on nine-twenty-seven and twelve-hundred and have been known to operate two meters and six meters USB from grid square CM 97 bf.  The pictures above and below are some of my rooftop antennas.

My trusty Icom IC-706MkIIG allows me to operate on several HF bands through an LDG Electronics AT-100Pro Autotuner and an (unknown brand but believed to be similar to a G5RV Junior) slightly inverted vee antenna.  Thanks to Tom NT6S for engineering and installation assistance.  I am learning everything I can about operating on the high frequencies. 

My repeater group is called Community F.M. Associates, CFMA for short. 

Proprietor of the WB6KHP (open) repeater on 224.68 MHz (input 223.08, ctcss 107.2 Hz) at low level in San Jose while it is looking for a new home. If you are a site owner looking for a repeater, please let me know. One day I would like to add IRLP and EchoLink.

Proprietor of the WB6KHP (open) repeater on 444.700 MHz (input 449.700, ctcss 127.3 Hz), at moderate level in San Jose, which includes IRLP node 3246 and EchoLink node 525493. Feel free to connect during reasonable daytime hours in the Pacific Time Zone.

Proprietor of the WB6KHP (open) repeater on 147.030 MHz (input 147.630, ctcss 107.2 Hz), at low level in south San Jose. (New October 2015.)

Proprietor of the WB6KHP (open) repeater on 442.450 MHz (input 447.450, ctcss 100 Hz), at low level in south San Jose.

As above, all of these repeater systems are looking for new homes.

Proprietor of the WB6KHP (open) repeater on 444.975 (input 449.975, ctcss 127.3 Hz) and 224.540 (input 222.940, ctcss 100 Hz) in the Santa Cruz Mountains with good coverage throughout much of the San Francisco Bay area and parts of Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties.

I normally monitor the W6PIY repeater system (http://wvara.org/onair.html) from home and while mobile.  I also monitor the Bay-Net repeater system (http://bay-net.org/) and the C.A.R.L.A. repeater system (http://www.carlaradio.net/) from home.

I am also active on D-STAR from home in San Jose.  I monitor the WW6BAY D-STAR repeater on 444.075 MHz (input 449.075) on Black Mountain (Cupertino/Palo Alto) which is usually linked to REF014C.  Reflector 14C also connects repeaters in the north and east S.F. Bay areas, Monterey Bay area, Folsom/Sacramento, Napa/Santa Rosa, Central Valley, Reno/Sparks, Las Vegas and other nearby areas.

While traveling in the car, I almost always listen to 147.57 MHz FM, sometimes to 146.52 MHz FM, occasionally to 223.50 MHz FM and once in a while to all three.

When in the Phoenix area, I usually monitor the KB6POQ (linked) repeaters in Scottsdale on 445.900 (-5) 91.5 Hz ctcss and 145.310 (-600) 91.5 Hz ctcss.
