Ham Member Lookups: 5777

 

 I really enjoy drag racing and have been a member of the National Hot Rod Association—NHRA—since 2007. I own a 2011 Chevy Camaro, black of course, with only 10,000 miles on it with a stainless steel Borla exhaust system that takes this six-cylinder engine to roughly 345 Horsepower . If I had an automatic transmission instead of the six-speed manual transmission that's in it now, I could get from 0—60 mph a little quicker than the 5 seconds I'm getting now. 

 Did you know that the Top Fuel cars are churning out 11,000 horsepower in a 500 cubic inch V8 engine, which is a common V8 engine size? They don't race a full quarter mile anymore due to equipment failures that resulted in deadly explosions and dead drivers. They knocked-off 320 feet of the 1320 foot 1/4 mile and now race to only 1000 feet and are topping out at a new speed record of 335mph! This is roughly reaching 335 mph in 2 city blocks. At 60' the Top Fuel dragsters and funny cars are going 285+ miles per hour. If the equipment could hold together they would be going around 345+ mph in a 1/4 mile. When people tell me about NASCAR racing, I kindly tell them that I like to watch the cars that actually go fast. It takes the power of two NASCAR engines just to run the air-intake blower on top fuel cars. No offense to NASCAR enthusiasts!

 

  After roughly 3 1/2 decades of trying to run away from the ugliness of war I applied to the VA for disability on the recommendation of a 100% disabled veteran I know from the same war period and was moved to 100% after around one year. I served in the US Navy in Vietnam and reminisce on friends and times from Team 13 and wonder how many friends are alive today. 

  I have a service dog named "Rocky" provided by Patriot Assistance Dogs based in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. God has blessed me and everyone involved in the program. Rocky is around 4+ years old and has eighteen months of specialized training for military combat service personnel and is provided at no charge to veterans meeting VA disability requirements. These people are wonderful.

  I have been a licensed amateur radio operator since 1994, back when you had to wait an excruciating period of time for your callsign. I love two-way radios and really miss hearing and participating in the technical side of RF, a nearly dead practice in ham radio. I own two new repeaters and one is located at Black Horse between Great Falls and Havre Montana and am looking for a second location to link with. 

  I have been granted the 146.800mhz with a 100.0hz tone and am waiting for internet service at the repeater site and will have Wires X and Echolink soon and will hopefully get help setting up my IRLP node as well. *4/26/2017*

  I try to live my life by the principals listed below. May God bless those who hear and receive:

 
  Ecumenism is Unity in Error
 
  
  "If you make people think they are thinking, they will love you. If you make people think, they will hate you."
 
  Will Durante 
  
  We ought to obey God rather than men. Acts 5:29.
