Biography

So, if you are reading this, you must have made a contact with me... Or, for some reason, just interested.

Ive been a ham since April 2001 and got my ticket while living in the Atlanta area thus the 4 call. I was very active and even the AEC for the county ARES group. I ran nets and other fun stuff as a tech and even built my own 6 meter antenna which I made several contacts.

I moved to Houston a few years back and really wasn't active at all. It's been hard to get back into the swing of things and one day I just made the choice to study and take the General class exam. I took it at NASA for bragging rights even though it really didn't matter much. Some folks ask why I didn't change to a 5 call and to that I say why? I have EVERYTHING set up for KG4NDS. I even have my email set up with that call so it would be tough to do. Maybe if/when I upgrade to Extra then I MIGHT take a look at a 1x2 or the like but who knows.

The QTH is a condo just outside of the "beltway" or Highway 8, 2 miles south from where I10 intersects Hwy 8 on the West side. The HOA has a pretty strick antenna requirements, AKA, none allowed, so I have to do all my radio time mobile. I have finally got the install done and am tweeking it to make it better.

I listen to 40 meters a lot but also around 17 and 20 meters as well. Mostly between 11am UTC and 9:30pm UTC during the week. That is when I'm eaither going to work or coming from work. On 40 Meters give me a call on about 7.185 or 7.195 in the if you can. I have more time in the AM than the PM and the band seems to be a bit quieter in the morning.

If you have read down to here, please sign my web log and say hello.

Thanks and 73

Equipment

The equipment list is a Kenwood TM D700 (the older version) which is mounted on the top. and the Kenwood TS-480SAT at the bottom. I use a Turbo Tuner to control the antenna which is a Little Tarheel II 6-80 Meter. It has a 54" whip on the top which makes it a bit better with signal. The mount for the control heads is for Lido radio products.
