My Ham Radio Interests
QTH: Conroe Texas.
I always seem to take a wide interest in this hobby. This year I have been getting into VINTAGE amateur radio equipment. Operating, restoring, building, old tube radio equipment.

ICOM 756PRO, AL572 amp feeding a DX-CC ant up at 30 feet.
Hallicrafters SX-140
Hallicrafters S-38a and S-38b
Hammarlund HQ-110c
2 Kenwood TM-V7 in there box's (not used)

Most of the test and alignment equipment needed to put the older radio back in the working order.

Other Interests
I retired from the Air Force in 1994 at Cheyenne WY. I went to work selling home electronics and moved from area to area for 3 or 4 years. I settled in Dale City, Va just out side Washington DC in 1997 and went to work for HRO (Ham Radio Outlet VA). I think most hams would be excited just to be able to visit a major ham store but work in one, this was a great time for me over the next 5 years working for HRO. I did retire and move to Texas in 2003 where I was able to spend a lot of time with my mother and father.

I am a life member of the ARRL and Past member of the ShyWy Amateur Radio in Cheyenne, Wy and Souris Valley Amateur Radio Club in Minot, ND. Currently live in Conroe, TX and no local club in the area I think there is a monthly luncheon in the area..
