I am an FCC licensed amateur radio operator. I currently operate with a General class license (since 2016); I made the upgrade from technician class in 2023.
My callsign is KN0VAK (can you guess why?), and I was previously KD2LNP.
You might hear me occasionally on the Colorado Astronomy Net, Tuesdays @ 7PM MT utilizing Rocky Mountain Radio League Repeater UHF 449.450. I am also a member of the Castle Rock Repeater Group.
current setup: Xiegu G90 into a 66’ EFHW antenna (using a TennTennas 49:1 transformer). Looking to experiment with dipoles soon. I max out at 20w with the Xiegu but otherwise it has been a great starter rig in my opinion: it really forces me to be mindful of antenna design and placement.
