Welcome to Amateur Radio Station, WY2G – Α Ω                                                                                                              

My journey into Amateur Radio began early in my youth. I got my first start in the 70's by becoming an SWL, WDX2RRQ, and later by getting my CB license, KADJ9746, with a profound interest in electronics in my high school years. From that point onward I was hooked on technology, and made my way into a profession in the telecommunications field. The 80's were fun and exciting times in the communications sector, where I started my own radio and electronics company, and operated an SMR-IMTS mobile radiotelephone systems for sixteen years. There after went on to develop wide area communication networks, and tracking systems.

I have been licensed since 1997, and currently hold an Extra Class license. I enjoy operating Stateside and DX contacts throughout the bands, with 40, 20, and 17 meters being my favorite ones. My lifelong interest in electronics and communications keeps me up to date with technology, but I have a passion for tube-type radio and audio equipment, and also like building and experimenting with electronic gear and antenna systems.

The station is located on top of Onondaga Hill in Syracuse, New York, at an elevation of 1450ft./442m. resulting in a gradual drop favoring communications with North and South America, Europe and Asia.

I feel fortunate and privileged to be an Amateur Radio Operator, and have been involved in many aspects of technical, educational, and mentoring to our future generations. Most of all, I enjoy the fellowship of old friends that I've made over the years, and the making of new friends in this great hobby and service; we call Ham Radio. Thank you for looking me up, and I look forward to meet you on the bands.

73,

John WY2G

THE AMATEUR RADIO PARITY ACT OF 2017 

If enacted, it would direct the FCC to extend the reasonable accomodation protections to those amateurs who are living in deed restricted communities.  Known as "CC&Rs" (Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions) these are the prohibitions and limitations placed on properties by builders or home-owner associations (HOAs) which prevent licensed Amateurs from erecting even modest antennas.

 

On January 13, 2017, Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL-16) introduced the "Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2017" into the new 115th Congress.

LATEST NEWS: On Monday January 23, 2017 the US House of Representatives suspended their rules and passed the Amateur Radio Parity Act of 2017 by unanimous consent. This action now sends the bill to the US Senate for its consideration.
