Ham Member Lookups: 2556

 

 

My name is Tony,

I am a proud member of the ARRL, YL International SSB'ers (YLSSB #17043), and OMISS (#9575). I am also a member of the East Bay Amatuer Radio Club EBARC. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I am married and have three adult children. My wife's name is Gina, her callsign is KK6HBG. I retired out of Pacific Bell. We were AT&T prior to the divestiture in 1984. I have worked in, and around Telecommunications for most of my life. I started as a computer operator, and years latter was promoted into management where I ran, and managed data centers.

After I retired we moved to Maui, Hawaii. I became a merchant and opened, owned, and operated Pacific Connections, an art gallery located on Front Street in Lahaina. I also owned and operated, The Queens Gift Shop, also in Lahaina. Business was great until 911 happened. Shortly after 911 we moved back to the SF Bay area.

My hobbies include but are not limited to; Art, Science, Music, Literature, Photography, and of course Ham radio. I used to teach Music theory, and guitar. I played in a Classical Guitar Quartet. I also enjoy and play Jazz guitar, Latin guitar, Folk, and Blues guitar. I have a wonderful collection of guitars hanging on my wall. I have had many students over the years and really enjoy teaching. It is so wonderful to see others learn, progress, and then to apply their new knowledge. I have been playing the guitar for over forty five years. While in Hawaii I would play cocktail jazz at the swanky upscale beach hotels. What fun that was.

For me Ham radio is very fascinating, exciting, and fulfilling. I especially enjoy just listening to other QSO's. I am in the process of Learning International Morse Code (CW).  I still have a lot to learn regarding the science, and art of radio. I am also trying to improve, and further my skills as an operator. Please wish me luck.

I wish you all the best, and will be looking forward to hearing, and talking with you on the air. To you and your's

73.

Sincerely, Tony

 

My HF Station:

Yaesu FTdx 3000, LDG AT-600 Pro ll Auto Tuner, LDG M-600 Meter, Ameritron ALS 600 Fet Amp, SignaLink USB, Astron RS-35M Power Supply, Power Werx SPS-30DM Power Supply. My back-up rig is a Kenwood TS-440S.

SDRplay RSP - (Radio Spectrum Processor) - Connected to the RX-Out of the Yaesu FTdx 3000. Used mainly as a full featured Pan-Adapter, and for monitoring LF, IF, MF, and of course HF frequencies,. The SDRplay is fantastic for monitoring DX. I run it with SDRConsole, HDSDR, Omni Rig, and HRD software. It is a great piece of gear, and I highly reccomend getting one if you are interested in SDR?  It has greatly expanded the operational, and monitoring capabilities of my FTdx 3000.

Antenna's, G5RV, Chameleon Emcom II, and a  COMET-NCG GP-6. The Mosley Tri-Bander belongs to my friend. It is used for Field Day events. I also use Various Palomar Engineering RFI Chokes, and line isolators for my Antennas, Rig, and Amp. They really help.

My FM Station / and Packet Node:

Kenwood TM-V71A Dual Band 70cm & 2M rig, Kantronics KPC3+, used for Packet. I also use  EchoLink, and Winlink 2000 Client software, "RMS Express" for  Packet, and Radio E-Mail on HF, and FM. It really works great. In an emergency I can still send e-mail via radio by connecting to a remote RMS Express Central Message Server out of the affected area. This is a must have for emergency e-mail connectivity. Works with all ISP's. Go to Winlink 2000 and download thier software. You will be glad you did.

HT's:  

Yaesu FT-60, Several Baofeng UV5R's., and various Cobra walkie takies.

Software:
