My HAM Bio:

My first foray into the hobby began by attending a meeting at the Nashua Area Radio Club (NARC) in January 2016, and then quickly decided to aim to get my license at the end of February 2016. Luckily, I leaped from my Tech license and went right to my General. While studying for the Extra license, I continued to attend NARC meetings and Tech Nights where learning by osmosis is certainly NOT overrated. There I met a lot of great and helpful people/elmers. 

Now that the FCC recognizes me, I am beginning to construct my first HF station. My current (6/18/16) station details are as follows:

  • IC-7300
  • Samlex SEC-1235M power supply
  • Buckmaster 7-band, 3000W, OCF dipole antenna
  • Radiowavz 15 m dipole (to fill in the band the Buckmaster doesn't provide)
  • Yaesu FT-1000MP
  • Ameritron AL-80B amp

I finally got my antenna and rig set-up. That construction (debacle) can be viewed on an article I wrote for the Nashua Area Radio Club. 

A few months ago, I think around July 2016, I became the Programs Coordinator for the Nashua Area Radio Club. Since fulfilling this role, I've had the pleasure of organizing talks for our monthly club meetings on the first Tuesday of the month, as well as topics for our Tech Nights, on the second Tuesdays of the month. ( Is it obvious I'm giving a shameless self-promotion for the club? :) ) Certainly navigate the website and see what we're all about. And if you're in the area, please come by and attend some meetings! You won't be harassed to join etc.

I'm still getting my shack together and as winter is approaching, need to start finalizing some items. Eventually I will trench my coax in the backyard, but not currently. Additionally, I need to find an entry point into the house from outside and make sure everything is as waterproof as possible. To that end, I bought an enclosure from DX Engineering to house my lightning arrestors which I need to figure out where that will live.

It seems that a ham's shack is continually a work in project. That's something I really love about this hobby. I like have projects to work on. When I get bored / upset at work, I can fixate on my DIY projects, and take a little solace in doing something I really enjoy.
