Welcome to K1FRC’s Ham Radio Shack on Airchexx.  If you’re here, you probably are a ham, or you have some interest in becoming one.  This page is dedicated to a few things I like, and some ham radio content.

Below is my Ham Radio Log.  This only goes back to June 2020 when I got back on the HF bands. 

The Top radio is an Icom IC-718.  That one is on the air now at the shack.  I have a 20 meter dipole up only about 15 feet at the highest point but I do get out when conditions are right.  New power cord, Power supply is an Astron 20A.  Really doesn’t push the rig as it should and I’m only getting about 45-50 watts out on digital modes.

The second radio is my dream rig.  It only goes for 12,000 at Ham Radio Outlet…. I could put that down on a new car!!!  Its there just so I can dream and see what my savings goal is for one day.  Right now I have to rebuild the antennas and get a better power supply.

I’ll see ya on 20m BPSK-31 or Olivia one of these days, or you’ll hear me calling CQ on 75 meters… Need a bigger stick for the lower frequencies… not getting out much but ya never know!

73 y’all and stay safe till we meet on the bands!
