I'm not a HAMmer, but I agree with you Bob, where is everyone?

Comment by Bob Allard on April 16, 2012 at 5:26pm

What happen to all my Amateur friends on here , lets make some noise and let everyone know that we are out there and will be there when the weather gets bad and thats when we step in and help.

So let me here you and lets set up a time and freq. to meet and say HI. You can usually find me on 20 meters at or above 14.225 SSB.

KC2 TFI, Hello sir and very good on your setup and skywarn.. I have been a ham since 1993 and been doing skywarn about that long also..Good deal with the general ticket and HF. I have dual banders in both my vehicles and once had my IC 706 mkII in my truck but the truck died and now have a car and not enough room for it. Also have a TS 450sat in the house and a AL811 amp..but right now don't have any antennas up but I will soon..

Been looking forward to skywarn season this year to see what it bring our way here in north Texas. Our storms the last couple of years have been fairly light so we will see.

I have been an extra class since about 1996 and have really enjoyed the hobby and the many friends I have made over the air.

Fine business Bob and great to hear from you and I will let you know when I get some antennas up and we can meet on the air..

73's for now


Comment by Bob Allard on April 8, 2010 at 3:28pm
Good afternoon, yes I am in to the Ham Radio have now for about 2 yrs., got my general so I have been listening and some contesting, its great fun and I enjoy it alot. I have taken the Skywarn course and will have to load them into my 2m radio and also I have a Kenwood TS480SAT hf radio with a G5RV antenna in the backyard that gets way out there if you know what I mean. I am one of the directors in the local ham club, there call sign is W2SEX, a lot of people will ask us to repeat the call sign. My call sign is KC2TFI we will have to try and call each other I am mostly on 20 meters.

Take care and 73's
