My Ham Radio Interests
Aloha,

I moved from the Pacific Northwest to the Island of Oahu in Aug 2009. My call sign then was KD7KFT. I have since changed my callsign to reflect my new location. I had to create a new page as I could no longer access my old Ham Shack page and couldn't get any Tech help.

I retired in 1993 from the US Navy as a Senior Chief Radioman (SS) from the Submarine Service.

I joined the Navy on September 28, 1972 and attended Boot Camp, Radioman A and C School in San Diego, CA. My list of duty stations:
1. USS Ogden LPD-5
2. High Frequency Receiver Site, NavCommSta Harold E. Holt, Exmouth, Western Australia
3. USS Alexander Hamilton SSBN-617(Blue)
4. Instructor Duty, Trident Training Facility, Naval Submarine Base Bangor, WA
5. USS Florida SSBN-728 (Blue)
6. USS Michigan SSBN-727 (Gold)
7. USS Henry M. Jackson SSBN-730 (Gold)

I retired from the U.S. Navy in January of 1993 as a Senior Chief Radioman, RMCS(SS), Submarine Service while serving on USS Henry M. Jackson SSBN-730 (Gold).

I was awarded the following for my military service:
1. Meritorious Unit Commendation Medal
2. Navy Unit Commendation Medal
3. Battle E Ribbon
4. National Defense Medal with Bronze Star
5. Good Conduct Medal with Silver Star
6. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal
7. Vietnam Service Medal
8. Submarine Breast Insignia (Silver Dolphins)
9. SSBN Strategic Deterrent Patrol Pin with 18 Patrols
10. Letters of Commendation
11. Master Training Specialist

I am currently employed as a programmer analyst in the medical research field for an HMO in Honolulu, HI.

My interests are in pQRP, Digital Modes, vintage equipment and Sattelite Communications.
