Hello and thanks for stopping by my QRZ page! I'm Katie WY7YL (formerly WY7KRA and W1KRB). I live in the beautiful state of Wyoming with my husband Dwayne, WY7FD and my mom WY7MOM lives next door - can't ask for much better than that! 

I'm just thrilled to work for Ham Radio Outlet as the Social Media Manager. This job allows me to work with something I love (marketing and social media) for the hobby that is also my passion - ham radio! 


Hamvention 2016

I'm happy to be a member of YLRL, it's a great organization for YLs and I encourage all YLs to please join us on Echolink for YL Ham Echolink Net every Thursday evening at 8pm Eastern Time (Friday 01:00UTC Winter/Friday 00:00UTC Summer)!  All YLs welcomed to participate (OMs encouraged to listen if you like)!  Look for us on Echolink ALARA Conference Node 286905. Check out Young Ladies Radio League - http://www.ylrl.org.
 

Back at the start of 2015, former ARRL President Kay Craige, N3KN appointed me as the Chairman of the ARRL Public Relations Committee. It was a tremendous honor to servce and I'm happy to continue on this committee this year. It's great to work with my elmer and great friend Sean Kutzko, KX9X who is the Media & PR Manager at ARRL. Below is a pic of us in the booth at Dayton Hamvention 2015.  

At home in Wyoming....I'm married to Dwayne,WY7FD and have an ICOM shack with a 7600, 756 ProIII and a 746Pro and two PW1s (the Icom companion amplifier)! We have two towers - one is about 50' and has antennas for just about all bands now, as well as a rotating multi-bander and a new 100' tower that went up in the Fall of 2016. We're happy to have a 160m Radiowavz double bazooka up on top of that tower, we definitely have found it easier to get those top band qsos now!  We are at an elevation of ~5200'.  

Wyoming sunsets make for great antenna photo opportunities!

 

I'm an A-1 Operator, have my DXCC and am an ARRL VE. Dwayne and I are also the founders of the Northeast WY Contesting Club - WY7SS. We created it because of our love of November Sweepstakes.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



I enjoyed being on the beach in CA for Thanksgiving - had to leave my mark in the sand! Also plenty of time for goofying around with Gordo and Chip!


I love the show Last Man Standing....it's  a thrill to see my QSL card on the set of the show! We had the opportunity in September 2015 to visit the set and operate from the station. It was really exciting to get a chance to meet the star of the show, Tim Allen. Huge thanks to my friend John Amodeo, NN6JA for making it happen...Hams are the coolest people!!


My other hobbies include photography, reading, writing, making jewelry and running (not as much as I should though!) In June 2015 I completed my fourth half-marathon!

I'm on Social Media, come join me!
