Hello,I go by the name of Jerry and thanks for stopping by.
My XYL Beverly of 60 years is also a ham. Her call sign is KD4LDQ
I have been licensed since 1961 and have seen a lot of changes since then.
I like rag chewing and using the computer with ham radio.
I am presently running a Icom 746 PRO. Big bang for the buck.
Can do digital modes,SSTV,and of course 2 meters at 100 watts. How many radios can do that.
Using HRD to control the radio and when bands are bad I listen to local police calls.
If they would have put a color monitor in the pro, they most likely would still be in production.
I am a member of Southcars on 40 meters 7.251 8-2 PM EST and Ambassadors for Christ on 7.280 at 2:pm EST.
Also a member of the 7240 club located at 7.240 10-12 noon EST. Great bunch of folks
I enjoy the digital modes as well and you may catch me there.
I also host another website and would encourage you to check it out. It is for Christian news for today as it pertains to the times we are living in. I believe we are living in some very serious times and if ever we needed the truth, we surely need it today. Stop by and check it out if you get a chance as you won't be disappointed.
