Biography

DMR radio is on, call anytime 3103932.

Thank you for stopping by. I became an official ham on August 10, 1993 and was issued the call KE4ECY. Then I made the move to extra class on August 12, 2003 and again was issued a sequential call sign of AI4FR.

IMPORTANT: If we have worked before, please stop by to say hello again even if we have a number of QSO's on the same band and mode. I enjoy every QSO and really appreciate you taking the time to stop by even if it's just for a signal report. Plus I am always experimenting so PLEASE PLEASE inform me of any issues with my transmitted signal. I will not bite your head off but rather will be most graceful to you for taking the time to do so.

If we are in a QSO and you are reading this then lets talk about our hobbies as they may be the same. Mine include the outdoors, firearms, classic cars, farm life, and restoring tube radios. If nothing there peaks your interest then please introduce me to your hobbies. You never know, maybe I will be able to add to the list above after our QSO. I also enjoy military history and collecting military items from the civil war to Vietnam. This goes without saying the honor it is to be able to talk with any veteran. Thank you again for my freedoms.

Antennas = Not much more then a wire tossed out the window or some thing up in a tree. Wire antennas were installed with a slingshot from my wheelchair. For HF(160 - 17m) I use a 270' OCF dipole up 30' and on occasion a 102' G5RV also up about 30 feet, an A99(17m - 10M) up about 35 feet at the feed point, A Par OA-50(6m) up 10 feet. For VHF I have a Diamond X50A(2m and 70cm) up 10 feet.

Operation = 160 meters through 23cm using all modes.

I strongly feel that the ham community is a fraternity of wonderful people that are always there to help out. And as such, I would also be more then happy to help any one, at any time, any way that I can. Please feel free to email me about any thing. Together, there is no problem that we can not solve.

My motto has always been 100% ham-spirit in every sense of the word.

QSO and QSL info = Check logbook status and who is in it. I upload the logbook to eQSL, LOTW, HRDlog, HamQTH(unlimited callsign look up's), QRZ, and Club Log daily and/or weekly. I also reply to all paper QSL's in the same manner that I receive them. If for some reason you have sent a QSL but never got a reply shoot me an email and I will get another one right out. The QSO and QSL info link above can also be used to find out if I have recently received your QSL card.

The ARRL has gone WOKE! They speak of pronouns, diversity and inclusion. How about I identify as a life member of the ARRL. Will the ARRL be so diverse and inclusive with my delusion to grant me all such rights and privileges that come with life membership? NO they will not. So now I see the ARRL as WAS/WERE. My membership in this WOKE organization expires in Nov. 2022. I will not renew and as such I will no longer be able to respond to any QSL’s sent via the ARRL bureau after that date. I will also not participate in any ARRL events, contests, field day, scholarship programs, etc. It would be nice if the ARRL would just stick to radio and not promote mentally ill beliefs that change from day to day.

Thank you once again for stopping by and I'll be looking forward to the next time we meet.
