Ham Member Lookups: 63999


Thank you for stopping by to learn a little bit more about me. I became an official ham on August 10, 1993 and was issued the call KE4ECY. Then I made the move to extra class on August 12, 2003 and again was issued a sequential call sign of AI4FR.

IMPORTANT: If you hear me on the air and we have worked before, please stop by to say hello again even if we have a number of QSO's on the same band and mode. I am not one of them Ops that only care about working "new ones". I enjoy every QSO and really appreciate you taking the time to stop by even if it's just for a signal report.

If we are in aQSO and you are reading this then lets talk about our hobbies as they may be the same. Mine include the outdoors, firearms, classic cars, farm life, and restoring tube radios. If nothing there peaks your interest then please introduce me to your hobbies. You never know, maybe I will be able to add to the list above after our QSO. I also enjoy military history and collecting military items from the civil war to Vietnam. This goes without saying the honor it is to be able to talk with any veteran. Thank you again for my freedoms.

Transmitter/Transceivers = Icom, Kenwood, Hallicrafters, Collins, Hammarlund, Ranger, Heathkit, Alinco, Drake, Homebrew, Yaesu, Radio shack(no particular order).

Antennas = Not much more then a wire tossed out the window or some thing up in a tree. Wire antennas were installed with a slingshot from my wheelchair. For HF I have a 102' G5RV(160 - 17m) up about 30 feet and an A99(17m - 10M) up about 35 feet at the feed point.

Operation = 160 meters through 23cm using all modes.

I strongly feel that the ham community is a fraternity of wonderful people that are always there to help out. And as such, I would also be more then happy to help any one, at any time, any way that I can. Please feel free to email me about any thing. Together, there is no problem that we can not solve.

My motto has always been 100% ham-spirit in every sense of the word.

QSL info = I upload the logbook to eQSL, LOTW, HRDlog, HamQTH, and Club Log daily and/or weekly. I also reply to all paper QSL's in the same manner that I receive them, mail or bureau. If for some reason you have sent a QSL but never got a reply shoot me an email and I will get another one right out. The QSL info link can also be used to find out if I have recently received your QSL card.
