My Ham Radio Interests
My radio interests are 10 meters with qrp radios.
I have a number of converted cb gear from the late 70's
On am, ssb, and even FM, i get a real kick out of making
Contacts thousands of miles away with these
Very simple radios. I started out on tube cb radios
With my dad. He had one of the first cb licenses in the
Early 1960's KFC1274 we lived on a hill in Millbrae on the peninsula
And had a clear shot to the whole bay area.

I was first licensed in hi school as a novice.
I did not get active until I was re licensed as a novice
With voice privileges KB6ZCW. I used to be much more
Active on 10 FM and 6 FM. I am getting more active
And have interest in local QSO's on 10 meters and 6 meters
Of any mode. I would like to generate interest
Again using these bands. Not for just DX but for
Local use as well. I monitor with a uniden hr-2510
And Motorola Micor on 10 FM, it's my 1adam 12 radio.

I am active on d-star reflector 001C during the day also
And I monitor KU6V repeater on 444.900 + pl 110.9

Take care and hope to chat with you on the radio sometime.

73's. Steve

Equipment
Icom 729, various ht's and converted 11 meter gear to 10 meters.

Not much in the way of band openings on 10. A couple of times a day I hear stations 6 to 700 miles from my qth in Washington State and Arizona. Must be sparodic E skip. I picked up a 10 meter monoband mobile radio, the HTX-10. It's a nice radio but it has a quirk that I have to watch when transmitting to not overdrive the mic gain on ssb or the tra ...
