Welcome to the KD0WAU QRZ page. Thanks for looking me up and if we made contact, thanks for the QSO!

​​

In 2016 I participated in the Kansas QSO Party with KD0WAT. We were a fixed station in Greenwood County at Teter Rock http://www.mickeyshannon.com/kansas/landmark/teter-rock/ in the Flint Hills for the event, operating under the special ​call sign WØT. This year on August 26 and 27 we will once again be participating!  For information about the Kansas QSO Party 2017  Please visit www.ksqsoparty.org for more information.

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to hear you on the air!​

     

 

-----KD0WAU BIO------------------------------------

I passed my General in October of 2013 and my Extra in April 2017 In my house there is always a new radio to learn!   I am well versed in computers so naturally I want to manage the radio through software. I have a Yaesu 817, 897, 857, 920 and a Kenwood TM-V71. I interface them to Ham Radio Delux and Signalink working with PSK31 using fldigi. I use a vertical antenna called a Grasshopper, an Alpha Delta DX-CC Dipole for HF and a GP6 for UHF/VHF up about 20 feet.

I am a member of the Wichita Amateur Radio Club (WARC), Flint Hills Amateur Radio Club (FHARC)  and  started a local Ladies Net on a 70 Centimeter UHF repeater and it is now tied to the KanOkla Intertie System.  The ladies are new Hams or Hams who have had their licenses for many years but not talked on the air.  Our purpose is to have fun and get on the air!  We have about 18 Lady Hams who call in and on a given night between 9-10 lady HAMs are on the air. We have an Echolink connnection so other Lady Hams can join us who can't reach the repeater.  If you would like to join us send me your call sign to kd0wau@cox.net and I will put you in the security table for access.  Ladies only portion from 8:00 to 8:45 central and then the gentlemen are invited to participate. Our node W0UUS-R.

My husband, Wayne, is also a Ham, KD0WAT, and we share this hobby! We don't however, share our Ham shacks!  We both have Yaesu 60R/E Handy Talks and use them with Butler County Kansas CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) where we help with Communications.

Wayne developed a Go Box rack for his 817 in yellow. I asked him to configure one in black for my desk.  He installed a RigRunner with USB ports so I can charge devices and plug in an LED light and it has a 10 Amh gel battery onboard.  Anderson Power Poles lets me charge using my Goal Zero Solar panels, a Goal Zero Yeti (or Sherpa) for DC power, or an AC wall adapter.  The Tool Box weighs less than 12 pounds, which means I CAN Carry it easily.  We constantly modify the box with improvements and made a couple boxes for other HAMS. Here is my Go Box and a couple of pictures showing how I charge using Goal Zero solar panels and Goal Zero Yeti battery. The equipment can be used and stored in a waterproof tool box.
