Amateur Radio

Greetings from K1RET & K1NAT!

This page will show snippets of Ham Radio starting off with current band conditions. With thanks to N0NBH.

I’m K1RET an Amateur General Class Operator (formerly KC1FLG) I’ve been on the Air since 05 April 2016 and Snowie is K1NAT and she is also a General Class Operator.  We both are currently studying to upgrade to Amateur Extra Class!  I’m an ARRL and W5YI certified instructor for Technician and General Class.  I’m also an ARRL accredited VE (Volunteer Examiner).  I am a ragchewer and dabble a bit in contesting.  I’m also big into community service so I volunteer for Emergency Communications via ARES when the need arises.
