Ham Member Lookups: 1634

 

Hello, My Name is Del (WW2MI), formerly (KE8DZD), and I live in Rochester Michigan, Approximately 30 miles due north of Detroit in the USA.  I currently work as a Project Manager for KUKA Systems North America.  My main emphasis is Electrical Controls Engineering for the Big Three Automotive Plants working primarily with Chrysler the last 10 years.

 

I have recently gotten involved with Ham radio due to starting out on the 11M band and knew I wanted to peruse my radio hobby in a much better environment and advance in range and territory.  I took my Technician Ham license Exam on April  16, 2016 and was impatiently waiting to get on the air.  During that period I studied for my General and Extra and passed both of them on April 23, 2016.  I was an Extra before I even got my Technician Ticket and it was a long two days before I could even get on the air!!!

I am currently registered as a VE with the ARRL as of May 2016.  My hope is to get others involved in the GMARC so that we can expand our club and offer area Ham operators a local place to test.

 

I have two wonderful girls whom are already out on their own, and a wonderful son-in-law Tim (KE8EJR)

 

My wonderful XYL Roberta (K8NET), formerly (KE8EJQ)  whom has also joined my passion for radio has obtained her ticket in late May 2016, currently in studies for her General maybe this fall.

 

We are both Members of Oakland County ARES and RACES, and have been involved with SKWARN for over 10 Years.  We are also part of the GMARC club in Detroit Michigan, USA -    www.gmarc.org.

 

My Current Radio base consists of;

Yaesu – FT-991 which I use as primarily 70cm and occasionally 2m and as a HF back-up

Yeaeu – FTDX3000 for my base HF Radio

Yeasu – FT7900 in my Jeep and XYL’s F-150

And (2) MD-390 DMR radios that we use for Oakland ARES and RACES/ SKYWARN

 

 

My very small antenna farm consists of;

A QSO King End Fed Antenna mounted on the second story of my home running out 117’ to a evergreen tree in my back yard.  The counterpoise is connected to approximately 80’ of gutter on the second story.

A Diamond CP-5H Mounted on my Shack Roof

And a Diamond X-200A for 70cm and 2m

 

 

My other hobby is my freshwater planted aquariums –

I raised my own Angelfish my last hatch was almost over 200.

 

And of course my Jeep Wrangler….
