My Ham Radio Interests
An avid collector of the glow in the dark radio's from the glory days of ham radio. I enjoy learning and reading about the radios that captured the imagination of an era of discovery and intrigue. While stock-piling the old, there is always room for the new. My rig of choice is Yaesu's FT-847, a rig packed with possibilities and many hours of excitement. Working 432mhz - 160m including 222mhz and the new 60 meter frequencies. With many Beams, verticles, dipoles and a 530'loop for all bands. Advocating reallocation of 40 meters and acquisition of frequency allocation on 600 meters 490 - 510 khz. Acquiring this new allocation benefits experimentation in antenna construction and the study of omni-directional long ground wave and effects of D-Layer Propogation. Looking forward to additional bandwidth on 60 meters to accomodate an increasing number of modes and users of the existing 5 Channels.

I would like the powers to be to consider additional spectrum between 20 and 40 meters for phone, since 30 meters prohibits voice communication. A frequency allocation of 12.5 mhz to 12.8mhz as a new worldwide amature band is worth considering. The allocation is currently assigned for maritime mobile usage, though usage is sporadic.

Lets lobby for new bands as spectrum becomes available !!!

Does it seem strange that you can no longer become an Advance Operator but there is bandwidth reserved for Advance Operators?

Would it be better to upgrade all Advance Operators to Extras and to merge Advance Bandwidth into the General Portion of Band ?

ARRL - FCC give it some thought, PLEASE !!!!!

Multiple Radios with Multiple Beams, Verticles , and Wire Antennas.
Building Antenna's .. loops, dipoles,inverted V's. inverted L's and the impossible as well!!!

Other Interests
Increasing Spectrum is Imperative to Every HAM

Lobby For Increased Allocation Now.

Keep Ham Radio Alive

Be Active !!!

“There comes a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part; and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop, and you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, the people who own it, that unless you’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all.”
