Hello. Thank you for looking me up. I have been a ham since the early 90's. I have been a fan a radio communication since I was a young child. My current radio set up includes an ICOM IC-730 (with an ICOM SM-5 microphone) powered by an ASTRON 20 power supply, a MFJ 949E Antenna tuner which is hooked up to an end fed long wire (25 ft feed line with a 50 foot radial) that is run as a slope antenna with the end of the radial hung in a tree approximately 40 feet up. I also have a 10 meter dipole that is approximately 50 feet above ground. For VHF I use an Yaesu ft1900r 2 meter radio and a baofeng UV-B5 dual band handy talkie. I was also blessed to win an Icom 880h at our club's latest Christmas party so I am learning how to use the Dstar system. I also use my ICOM IC-730 in a mobile configuration using a MACH 10 firestick (4 ft. fiberglass antenna) mounted to a 6 inch magnetic mount. When I am not near my actual radio equipment, I enjoy using my Android phone to access repeaters all over the world using the Echolink system. Amature radio is a facinating hobby and I am always learning new things. Thanks again for looking me up. I hope that you are enjoying Ham radio as much as I am. 73's!
