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.

100% American made HF station including antenna's and coax = Flex 6700 with GPSDO(main rig), Palstar LA-1K amplifier and Palstar HF-Auto tuner.

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 I have a 102' G5RV(160 - 17m) 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 can also be used to find out if I have recently received your QSL card. While I would like to be a member of the ARRL I have let my membership expire due to their many “Petition’s for Rule Making” to the FCC over the past few years. As such I can no longer respond to any bureau cards. I will however continue to upload to LOTW to help those after awards. Thank you for your understanding.

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