Biography

I became an amateur radio operator in 1999 with a HTX-202 2-meter handheld from Radio Shack.

My home QTH is in north Stockton, CA, (CM98hb) right on the border of Stockton and Lodi, where my shackless ham gear tries to stay out of the way of the XYL, kids, and several tamed rescued feral cats. Sometimes I attempt QSOs from the Metro Sacramento area where I work (CM98io).

The underlying reason for my ham radio interest is emergency communications preparedness (EMCOMM).

I'm mostly into hf CW and digital modes, and occasionally SSB. I keep in touch primarily on DStar REF012A. I am also occasionally on several Bay Area and Central Valley 2m repeater systems in Northern California.

My EDC rig is a mcHF clone (don't get mad, no longer sold as a kit), 3Ah LiFePO4 battery, various monoband hamsticks, and a tiny American Morse paddle. Home rig is FT-857D with PreciseLOOP HG-1 mag loop for hf, or a quad-band 10/6/2/70cm vertical for VHF/UHF. Favorite among my HTs is the Kenwood TH-D74A for all its capabilities. I connect via hotspot to DStar and DMR but prefer DStar for its ease of use. DStar: REF012A, 030C, 001C. DMR: TG 31621 (HRCC), TG 31075 (BayNet), TG 93 (North America), or TAC310.

I upgraded to General class in November 2017, then to Extra in December 2017. Formerly known as KF6UJS.

I've helped several people become hams, and like sharing whatever I know in support of others' quests to get their signal out there.
