=======================================

God Bless America, and God Bless the 101st.

WX9DX

I was lucky enough to have Ham Radio Operators that took interest in me at age 8. At age 9 I was able to pass the test for my Novice Ham Radio ticket. I have loved the hobby all my life, and because of that I have worked in the field of communications all of my life. I did pass the 1st Radio Telephone inthe 70's while working in a Motorola Service Shop " MSS".I'm now 62, retired, and loving the time with family & friends.

 

After all the years in Amateur Radio, the hobby seems as exciting today as it always has.

 

My radio interests now days are very diverse. If your looking for me when your in Central Illinois, try 444.4 MHz FM Repeater PL 103.5. If I'm not there one of the guys there can contact me.

 

On HF look for me on 3.943, 7.258 LSB. If it is after Midnight try me on 1.880 MHz LSB... The guys on any one of these frequencies will let me know you were looking for me, if we don't hook up when you call.

Thanks for your interest in this hobby, and always remember that

your Ham Ticket is a "License To Learn".

 

QSL via SASE please! Thanks:)

My QRP Station set up here in Florida a Ten Tec R4030 radio hooked to a jump start battery.

My antenna right now is a S9 vertical, 30 ft of wire inside of a 30 ft fishing pole. The ground is my bumper

of my camper. Just worked KJ4RGH Chris in VA, USA. on 40 cw 7.04.5Mhz.

Got a 589 RST from him and sent a 599 back, he was using a Henry amplifier with a lot of power

and I was running  2 to 5watts output. 1/1/2017 @ 2023Z time...

Beacon News Edit: May/27/14

WX9DX 10 Meter Beacon

28.292Mhz @ 1/2 Watt.

Antenna Hustler 4BTV Vertical.

This is my Home made Little Joe Transmitter. It is a work in progress right now. It is on the air and works very well! My first report came from WJ5O in Alabama... My plans in the future are to put it out in my front pasture under a fake rock with a solar cell and a 1/4 wave whip out of the rock. Right now it is hooked through 75' of coax to my Hustler 4 band ground mounted vertical.

If you do hear this  Beacon please E-mail me, and let me know what you did hear "as per what was sent by the Transmitter Ider in CW". If you did hear it you'll be able to send me the text of what you did hear i'm sure. The CW rate is set slow so you can copy it down. I'll reply in kind with an E-mailed QSL Card.

Some of the Questions I get as an ARRL TS are about antennas. Here are a couple of diagrams I often send to Hams around the world. Hope this helps you! :)

My Letter to My Local Ploitician about Gun Control!!!! :)

 

To:State Rep.Raymond Poe
 
Subject: Gun Control!
 
Sir:
 
I live just down the road from you and come to your fund raisers each year, for many years.
 
My wife and I had our house broke into out here west of Cantrall years ago and it took 45 minutes for the County to get here! The 911 operator since I was in a wheel chair wanted my Wife to go check Her Brothers house behind us to see if the bad guy was still there. I took the phone and told her what for and the Sheriff’s Chief Deputy “ which I also know from repairing their radios” called me back the next day and apologized for the 911 Operator asking my Wife to do such a thing.
 
My Point is Sir. We have the right to protect ourselves from home invasion and from City people that come out her drugged up, drunk and breaking into our homes. The river down here by Irwin bridge collects kids and drug/ booze parties every year when the weather is nice. That is just over the bluff from my farm here on Irwin Bridge road.
 
I’m asking you Sir to not vote to pass any bill that will infringe on my rights to use a fire arm of my choosing to protect me and my family!!! Also I ask that you protect my God given right to feed my family using a firearm, crossbow or rod and reel...
 
You know me and my wife well from all these years, I’m not some nut case Sir. I was in the US Army from 1969 to 1972 and worked for Gov. Walker directly on his PR team the Illinois Information service. I have worked with Law enforcement all of my life, 22.5 years with IDOC working on Radios and electronics for them and other agency's such as the State Police, mental health, IEMA etc. I still volunteer with IEMA and the US weather service. Also I was the second responder to the Williamsville tornado a few years ago.
 
Sir I am asking, no begging please help those of us keep our 2nd amendment rights! I’ve been on your team, please help us.
 
Best regards
James M. Cary

RE: Increase in your billing in 2015...
 
TO: Dish Network.
 
I have been thinking of closing or lowering my Dish Network account. I have been with Dish since the first days they were on the air. I had been an early C band dish inventor. When Dish came out the big thing that drew me to Dish Network was the Guide. Now days the guide has to do a 5 minute down load and I can’t even use the unit at all while that is going on. I did not even have that in the C Band days. Your service is not a Need it is just an extra in our lives that I have allowed my self and my family to enjoy. Now days with the ability for the Internet videos etc, I do not need to spend the almost $xxx a month any more to enjoy TV. So I will be calling you to either conclude and or end my Dish account, or to give me a lower TV package “in the very near future”, 2015. As of 2015 you want more money that is fine. I want less programming, to lower my monthly charge from you.
 
And as I am a customer right now of yours, I want less of the junk TV you cram down our necks as TV entertainment packages like Opra W Network and other junk. I want us to be able to choose our own channels like back in the C Band days. You think your programming is a drug and you can charge what you want, your wrong! It’s not a necessity for sure in my house hold. Am I a little pist off, yes I am. You want to charge more in a time when the President of our nation has put the screws to us with his health care program and now we have to pay more for insurance and other things because of him. I ask you, are you helping your customers? A quick answer, NO! It’s greed pure and simple as I believe right now. Maybe I’m wrong, but prove it! This Christmas season don’t send out any bills for the month of December 2014! I dare Dish network to do that!
 
BTW, I will be posting this Email answer to your increasing your billing on the Internet for all to read.
 
Best Regards this Christmas Season. And thanks for letting me know of  you increasing my bill. Smile

I have an IC7000 in a 2016yr  Chevy 2500HD with a 6ltr gas engine. RFI PROBLEMS on HF!

 It has all the goodies in the dash! It plays fine at full power of 100watts from the amp under the back seat on two meters with a dual band mag mount on the roof. And at 440MHz it is just fine with the 35 watts the radio puts out.

 Where I have a problem is with the Predator Screwdriver on the drivers side rear, I get into the break system Anti Lock Breaking system failure indicator and stable track warnings on the dash when I transmit on HF over 50 watts. If I stay at 50 watts it only does it when I press the break while transmitting RF. Cry So if anyone can help figure that out please e-mail me. I'm good here and on QRZ.com

 The truck problem on HF has about drove me nuts and I have spent tons on RF clip on chokes. I tried 20 of them on wires in the back bumper area. Even the backup camera screws up while transmitting on HF. So I put a few Clip on chokes on it and that was at no avail. So I am pulling my hair out. I have had nothing but Chevy trucks and this 2016 is one that is not HF Ham Radio friendly. It has been nothing but a problem. I am afraid to even hook up my amp thinking it might kill this $50K truck! Great Job Chevy making this crap, sorry but never before has Chevy had a problem with any of my HF Ham Radio or Police radios in my trucks. But now this sucks. OBI WAN YOUR MY ONLY HOPE! I have worked on radio equipment all my life and have seen all kinds of stuff but I don't want to have to spend more money or time on this unless I know that it might really work.


Oh and Chevy said unless it is a warranty issue they will have nothing to do with this problem! That came from the Dealership Rep from a phone call he made to them.

I am not ego based enough to say I know everything, I don't and never will! Especially in the field of electronics I'm not a know it all! And this is in my field before I retired but this truck is kicking my A...
