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) 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.

Rigs/Radio Transceivers:
My current Handheld Tranceiver is a BaoFeng UV-82HP, it covers 2M/70cm.

My current base rig. I have the Yaesu FT-991A, it operates on VHF/UHF as well as the HF frequencies, the desk mic is the MD-100.

My VHF/UHF only Rig (this rig can be used as a mobile unit or a base unit). This is the Yaesu FT-8900R (This picture is from when I lived in Maine)


Antenna Systems:
One of the antenna systems I use is the BuddiPole Deluxe there is a wonderful YouTube Video describing what the system does.   A review from the 2018 Orlando Hamcation.
