August 7th Speaker KA6WNK Chris Story

I enjoy working HF, and have been enjoying chasing DX and working HF contests.
The operating activity that has really put the fun into amateur radio for me lately is working
the satellites. With all of the instant gratification communications tools we have today
it amazes me that I can pull off the road and into a parking lot or open field and work multiple
states using nothing more than a 5 watt handheld and a handheld yagi antenna.
I have been involved with emergency communications for my entire ham career; everything
from Navy-Marine Corps MARS, SHARES, RACES, CERT, U.S. Air Force Auxiliary
Civil Air Patrol and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
I am working on WAS and DXCC, so please QSL and I will do the same for you. For direct
QSL's, SASE is always appreciated.
This photo of me working satellite passes via SO-50 was taken on Santa Catalina Island
(IOTA #NA-066) 20 miles off the coast of Southern California in Feb 2015.
