Ham Member Lookups: 61567


Thank you for stopping by to learn a little bit more about me. I was born in 1965 and like a lot of hams, I got into radio at an early age. I became an official ham in 1993 and made the move to extra in 2004.

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, the electrical side of Ham radio 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, Hammarlund, Ranger, Alinco, Drake, Homebrew, Yaesu, Radio shack(no particular order)

Antennas = Not much more then a wire tossed out the window or some thing in the attic. The QTH here is under them dreaded deed restrictions. There is no tower or beam or rotor in use.

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 and LOTW. Please do NOT send a SASE as these are not needed at all. But please do send the paper QSL's as I enjoy collecting them. If for some reason you have sent a QSL but never got a reply, then by all means shoot me an email and I will get another one right out. The QSL link can also be used to find out if I have recently received your QSL card. Now for some fun stuff. Have we worked before? The link to my online log book below is updated every 1000 Q's. Do not forget to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see all the stats. Please keep in mind that this link and the one below are only for the AI4FR callsign and not my old call of KE4ECY. http://dx.qsl.net/cgi-bin/logform.cgi?ai4fr

Another interesting site to check out is the log book stats at eQSL. This one is updated on a weekly basis. http://www.eqsl.cc/Member.cfm?ai4fr

As you read this I am working on receiving a signal from the furthest distance ever recorded. Yes,even from much further than any of the spacecraft sent from earth. You can do this as well. In my spare computing time I am running a program called BOINC. In short, I am crunching numbers for the SETI project. If that does not interest you, there is a bunch of other projects to choose from including, finding cures for cancer, HIV, malaria, and other diseases, plotting out the milky way, deciphering a German WWII enigma message, looking for pulsars, and so much more. Join in on the fun and let your PC help mankind when you are not using it. You never know what you may be the first to discover!!!

Thank you once again for stopping by and I'll be looking forward to the next time we meet.

The Shack
