Ham Member Lookups: 1650

 

Sorry the photo of my shack is very out of date. Presently, I  run a  Yaesu FT-DX-3000 and Kenwood TL922A (2ea3-500Z) to about 1200W from my main operating position and in another portion of my home a FT-450 driving an Ameritron AL-811 to about 500W. HF antennas are fan dipoles at about 25'. There are also several VHF/UHF rigs for local communications. Backup power is gas generator and a battery pack  for emergencies and Field Day. One day soon I will add some new photos.

 

First licensed as Novice in November, 1953, Passed General in 1954 and was active for quite a few years.  Employed in the Telecommunications industry for many years working with Microwave, VHF/UHF, Fiber Optics, Data Transmission and other transmission media. Made the mistake of not renewing my ham license in 1979, while residing in the Middle East. Retired at age 56 from the ITT Engineering Department at the Western Missle Test Range, Vandenberg AFB CA. Relocated to Southern Baja Mexico near Cabo San Lucas for a couple of years, chasing big fish and cerveza freo! Returned to work in Southern California, during the start up telphone company industry rush. Retired again upon the colapse of the dot com's. Remarried and moved again to Baja Sur, building a good sized ocean view home. Cancer very unexpectedly took my wife before the house was completed and I lived there for nearly a year before returning to the Menifee/Sun City CA area where I worked as a handyman for 10 years before completely retiring due to advancing age.

Became bored with being a couch potato and decided to return to ham radio. Ten days later passed Technician and General and in about two weeks additional time obtained Extra Class. Applied for a Vanity Call and reverted to my original call - W8PNZ. Active on HF and VHF.  Spend considerable time training potential new hams and enjoy this aspect of the hobby very much.

73's,

Phil
