Merry Christmas to everyone

Thank for coming to my Bio

I go my middle name which Rodney

I got interested in CB when I was in the Air Force at my permanent base at Fort Lee, VA with 20th NORAD from 1973 to 1977. The person that introduce me to CB was Tom Scott. We got a book to study for the Amateur Radio license but it fell to the side when he got assigned to another base. I stop with CB when my tour with the Air Force was up. It got to be trashy on the air.

Then in 1995 I went into Radio Shack store back when is was a real Radio Shack store I saw one of theirs catalog saying NO CODE to get started in Ham Radio. I got the catalog and found out where they where gives classes. I got my No Code Tech license in January 24, 1996 and work my up over the years to Extra.
My Call is a vanity call WM4RT has to do with my initials for name Myron Rodney Tanner.

When computers first came out I search for his name on QRZ. There were several Tom Scott. I had to look at the birthdays and found one that was close to the year I was born. I suprised him sending him an email asking if he was the same Tom Scott that was station at Fort Lee, VA with 20th NORAD.  We talked on the phone several time and talk on the radio using a 6 meter FM repeater in the morning that was located near Rock Hills. He lives in Mount Holly, NC.

My radio is a ICOM IC 7100.
My Antenna is Comet CHA-250B twenty feet off the ground with no radials.

Like get it up another 15 feet.

Been running FT8 lately.
I found out that FT 8 keeps track of all your contact.
Also found out that if you go to Setting in FT8. Click on the general tab.

Then go down the display setting an check all boxes.
Then click OK
This will give you different color now.
The light Purple is new contacts.
The Dark Purple is new DXCC contacts.
The Green contact you already worked.
