About

The Basics

KK6GXG is my FCC issued Amateur Radio Service station/operator license and callsign. My Technician license was issued in 2013 on October 17th, General on March 18th, 2014 and finally Amateur Extra on June 9th, 2014

I had been interested in being a radio guy since the early 80s when a friend showed me his dad’s ham shack. The thought of being able to communicate with people around the world, and in space, from a relatively simple private radio station had me hooked.

I Finally Did It

There are a number of things that motivated me to finally get off my butt and earn my license; a desire to live off-grid, for personal and emergency communications, to educate myself in an area beneficial to my vocation (aviation), to continue learning new things, to have a focus in DIY electronics… The list really does go on and on.

I am here for fun, playing with gadgets, and building neat stuff, but I am also here to give back, to teach, mentor, and to serve my community in a way that an old fart who is not gettn’ any younger can continue to be of service for a long time to come, The Amateur Radio Service.
