I have been interested in the hobby for many years, but just got my license. Now I am on the airwaves. I am an easy person to get along with. I have a lot of hobbies and many topics to talk about.
I do like to rag-chew abit, ok ALOT!
I monitor 146.520 a lot and do APRS.
I am a trained storm spotter and I am apart of the Skywarn and ARES.
I am a member of R.A.R.A. and am also a net control operator.
I have contacted the ISS via packet several times already 🙂 I am still working on voice.
I made my first special station contact with
N4A, the Stuart Air Show MCARES.
Which is really awesome because not only was it my first special station contact, but also my first on 15 meters. But I am a HUGE aviation fan. And it happened on Halloween 2015! How cool is that!!!
My Goal: To work all 50 states. And before i die I want to work all the grids. Wish me luck!
I have a few websites:
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Does anyone know how to set up the FTM-400 so we can do packets with the ISS?
In depth tutorial would be awesome
I know ya have to set the path up for R0ISS in the aprs feature, but I don’t think I am doing it right. So was hoping someone has info on how to properly set it up.
We have searched the net with no results

I have been down with the flu over the last few days. I just recently got back on the radio. Band conditions have been very poor for me the last few days and just opened up a little bit this morning. I was able to make my second aeronautical HF contact a little bit ago (TG9AOR) so I was pretty happy. He was flying over the Gulf of Mexico. When I talked to him. It was a brief contact.
I am trying to get DX stations. That is what I’m trying to work on as I type this. There’s been several DX stations but with huge pileups. So I just keep spinning the dial. There’s a South Africa station. I’m trying to work right now. But with no success. Wish me luck
I worked my first official contest today. I got a total of 12 contacts. A total score of 120. I was able to hit the Cayman Islands. I was trying to find the balloon rally in AZ. They were working this weekend. I am hoping to get them tomm. I love working special stations. That would be awesome for that one, because I love hot air balloons!!! Below is a list of my NAQP log. I had a lot of fun doing it 🙂
