Biography

I was first licensed back in 1989. I started as a Novice taking my Technician shortly there after and later my General. Than 21/MARCH/2015 I took and passed my EXTRA TEST I have been keeping very busy since than. Since I am an apartment dweller and limited on antennas, I decided I will will never be a big gun DX station and rather than waste my Extra privileges I would explore other venues. As well being a W5YI and ARRL VE and I have been an elmer for many years am an active Storm Spotter and would be active in ARES/RACES but that program is currently non existent in this area I am hoping that changes soon. I am active on A.P.R.S. using APRSDROID and a Mobilinkd bluetooth tnc into a Baofeng uv5r. I am also on echolink and I discovered a wonderful group on Echolink "OUR COFFEE SHOP" *kb4svp* node 370143 I am now a moderator of that group come check us out sometime. But Echolink was not getting me on HF and so I started exploring other options,well I started exploring QRP. Well I than bought a Xiegu X1M Pro 5 watt QRP SSB/CW radio, a Super antenna MP1, a MFJ 971 portable antenna tuner and several batteries including a 12 amp Lithium Ion. Since the radio only draws 1.5 amps on TX I should be able to run all day I also have a solar battery charger which should give me longer running time. During warmer weather I take my QRP set up out into the field and activate a number of City and County parks around La Crosse and the surrounding areas. I have set up a page on Facebook to help keep track of my QRP operations and will include photos and maybe even some video. One of the parks I do activate is Grandads Bluff which is a bluff almost 600 feet up overlooking La Crosse should make for some nice photos. I have installed indoor antennas and became active on HF this way. I have recently become active on JT65 and am getting hooked on it. I am also active on SSTV, PSK31, and other digital modes as well as SSB. I log on LOTW, eQSL, hamlog, QRZ, QRZCQ, and HamQTH as well as direct. I QSL 100% electronically or by paper. Well that is my update for now. I am also on YouTube my ham radio channel is dpcommradio my weather and siren channel is dpcomm1 and my general purpose channel is dpcomm2. I hope to catch you on the airwaves or on Echolink soon 73 DE DAVID KB9EWG.
