About Me

So…my name is Matt, I live in North Carolina near the coast and I have been a ham radio or amateur radio operator for a 1 year now. My call-sign is KK4EQM and right now I am at the General level. In ham radio there’s 3 Tech, General and Extra Class. I am right now studying off and on for my Extra Class licensure, but no hurry. I am into operating on the 2 meter band and 70cm around town and my handheld radio has the capability of operating on the 6 meters.

My equipment includes a Yaesu VX-8DR which is the handheld I have and I really really like it. It’s an incredibility solid rig; with super cool features and good power. I have a Kenwood TM-V71A in my truck. It’s my mobile rig, it’s a dual band 2 meter 400 rig with a 65 watt max output. It has all sorts of neat features, and I’ve only had it for a little bit, so much so I couldn’t even explain them all.

Outside of Ham Radio I’m an electronics geek and audiophile. I love sound! Music, movies just anything. Through school and ham radio I have also developed a love for tinkering with electronics. From time to time here I’ll be posting about projects I do.

Right now I am just setting my blog and learning more about the hobby so I’ll probably put more up later…
