I was originally licensed as KA3BZC, upgraded
and got a new call N3AWL. Upgraded again and got KB3SH. Went out for Extra and got a new call, KG3M. I'm happy with that call
and I think I'll keep it. I've been a ham since 1978.
I'm active on DSTAR ref30C, CW and RTTY
and HF mostly 75 mtrs. I've worked all states mostly QRP, with a CW endorsement. I'm a FIST member and my number is 12410
. I've worked DXCC, WAS and WAC.
I got my license in Baltimore, Maryland and
lived there till 2000 when I retired from International Paper co in Odenton, Maryland with 39 years service. I'm now in Bronson,
Florida a little town south of Jacksonville and north of Orlando. The closest town is Gainesville.
My HF gear here is a Icom 756proIII, My Amp
is a Ameritron 811H, My antenna is a Off set Windom 6-80 Meters. My 2 mtr gear is a Icom 706MKIIG, 2 mtr Antennas are
a 14 element Hy-Gain Beam and a 2 mtr Ringo Ranger. Check out some of my shack ham photos. http://kg3m.com/id182.html
I just acquired a new QRP rig, A TenTec R-4020
it seems to be a very nice little rig. I highly recomend it.
There were three hams who were instrumental
in getting me started into Hamming, W3DTN, W3IQK and K3KHG I want to thank them for all their help and patience.
W3IQK is a silent key now but was a real great HAM in the old days. Many a fine story he would tell about the old days in
