Biography

Thanks for visiting my page! I passed the Technician and General exams in one sitting, receiving call KG5JNP on 10/01/2015. I then passed the Extra exam and obtained vanity call KB5TB on 11/17/2015. Have since earned accreditation from ARRL as a Volunteer Examiner, as well.

My station consists of an Icom 7410 driving an Icom AH-4 tuner, which has attached to it about 43 feet of wire in my attic. The radio is fantastic, but the antenna doesn't work any magic for sure - it's just too close to Earth. Looking to get a longer, higher-up doublet in the air or perhaps a vertical. Still, I have enjoyed making many contacts on FT8, JT (65 and 9) and PSK (31 and 63), as well as RTTY (FSK) and Olivia. Am up and running on CW from the keyboard, but am learning the code in order to eventually operate "old school."

I use electronic QSLs (LoTW, eQSL, QRZ, HRDLog, Club Log), but really enjoy paper QSL cards, too. I will gladly mail out a QSL card if I should happen to receive one from you, or if I see on your page that you like direct QSL. Hope to work or re-work you soon!

73,

Tommy
