Biography

I grew up around ham radio, my dad (KA7OWW) was regularly on the radio or going to breakfast with other hams. I remember pushing every button and flipping every switch on his Icom IC-701 when I was little.

I started messing around with CB radio in the summer of 2019 because I go off road exploring often. That grew into me figuring out how to make an 11-meter dipole for a base CB station. Naturally that grew into more interest on antennas and radios. So, I started to study to get my ticket, a lot of it came back to me from growing up around it and on Dec 2019 got my technician license and given the call sign KJ7LII. I found out the call K7OWW was available and applied for vanity right before I got my General in March of 2020 and in Feb 2021, I finally passed my Extra.

I grew up with a 2 Meter AEA Isopole on the side of our house and ever since I got my ticket, I wanted one, my buddy W7TVS found one when picking up a tower and gave it to me. It’s a decent antenna and pairs well with my 2m Kenwood.
