Ham Member Lookups: 354

 

Dave is a relicenced Ham who first got into Amateur Radio in 1993 as a Technician Plus, former callsign KD6TIA.  Back then, he could be found on the old 'Bomb Squad' repeater outside of Monclair, CA, and assisted in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses as a Ham Volunteer. After taking a hiatus of several years, he retook the Technician, General, and finally the Amateur Extra exam in 2017 within slightly over a month.  He has also recently applied to be an ARRL VE and looks forward to both teaching Amateur Radio classes and assisting in those testing for their licenses and upgrades.

Dave owns an old Alinco 2M VHF , an UV-3X5 Tri-Band , and a TYT MD-380 UHF DMR handheld radios.  He has built the 40 meter single crystal Pixie transceiver, and got a great deal on the Omnia SDR HF radio.  Additionally, he has a 6-Band HF QRP Tranceiver kit to build.  He has built a Mag Loop anntenna out of spare parts.  He is amazed at the advances within the Amateur community since the 1990's, especially how internet is being used to reach out to others.

His other hobbies include building 8-bit computers, biking, piloting fixed-wing aircraft, and travel, although it has been a while since he has either flown or gotten away from the So Cal area.  His favorite sports team is the Anaheim Angels and has been a supporter of USC Trojans College Football.

His advice to new Ham operators today: Use You Tube to find out more about Amateur Radio!  There is a whole world of Amateur Radio out there that is ready to be explored and You Tube has videos on almost everything radio related.
