Biography

I first got licensed back in 1994 as a Technician (KC7DXK). At some point kids and cell phones came about and Ham Radio went on the back burner. Recently the interest came back and I upgraded in 2017 to a General license and wanted a special call. W7AMC came about, the AMC came from my kids, and it’s the first initial of each of their names so they are always with me.

Equipment

I have recently been working on the shack and other equipment but have settled on ICOM. Decided on a Icom IC-2730A in both my SUV and in the house as a base and a Daiwa CN-501V cross needle meter. With all the new IRLP, Echolink and digital DMR, Fusion and D-Star has been rather confusing but I did pick up a TYT MD-2017 DMR radio to play with.

In my HF Rigs the Icom IC-7610 and a IC-7300 are great rigs, great features. They are paired with a Ameritron AL-80B and AL-572 amplifiers, a MFJ-989D, Ameritron ATR-30 roller inductor tuner and a LDG AT-1000ProII autotuner in the mix.
On the roof you’ll find a Diamond X-200A Dual Band antenna along with a MFJ-1835 Cobweb HF antenna (has been upgraded to a MFJ-1835H to support the amp), a MFJ-1848 8-band Hexbeam (check the very bottom of page) on the roof and a Alpha-Delta DX-CC 10-80m fan dipole with a modified 30m wire outside. The one tool that makes it all possible is a Comet CAA-500 Mark II antenna analyzer.
