Ham Member Lookups: 165

 

KI7CUS

We (my wife, two dogs and a cat, numerous cottontail rabbits, quail, pheasant, raptors, coyotes… and I) are located at our “compound” in Irrigon OR, Morrow County. We look across the Columbia River into Benton County, WA, at an elevation of 390 ft. above sea level.

We lived in California for 54 years till we finally decided to escape to N.E. Oregon.

After many years procrastinating about finishing my HAM ticket, I finally did. I took the Tech. and Gen. exams at the same session in March 2016, and passed both. In July 2017, I passed the Amateur Extra exam.

I’m a member of the Hermiston Amateur Radio Club (HARC). I joined this club for several reasons. 1) It is a group of fun amateur radio people and 2) It is a group of people with a lot of knowledge that are willing to share and help HAMs learn and progress in the hobby.

I’m a member of the Umatilla - Morrow Co. ARES organization and volunteer for other events in the Morrow Co. – Umatilla Co. area when possible. I also subscribe to the ARRL.

My interest in HAM radio covers all aspects of the hobby, depending on the day or minute, my attention changes from one area to another. I know focus, focus, focus.

The one thing I have realized about HAM radio, there is always something to learn or improve on.

Radios I use:

  1. ICOM…. IC-7300
  2. ICOM…. IC-2730, one in my HAM shack and one mobile.
  3. BaoFeng UV-82HP HT, with a Retech extended antenna and Kenwood SMC-34 speaker mic.
  4. BaoFeng UV-82 HT, set up as a scanner.

Antennas:

  1. Windom, 135 ft long, 50 ft high
  2. Diamond X-50, dual band

I look forward to meeting you on the airwaves.
