Next we have Dale KC7YFE

Hi everyone on QRZ,. I'm Dale, KC7YFE, and I'm here to share how I got into Ham Radio.
First of all, a little bit about myself. I am a low vision/blind Ham.
I lost my sight shortly after birth, due to Oxygen overdose, or I was in the Incubator for too long. About a month.
Moving on to the main topic of this bio, my start in Amateur Radio.
I started attending Summer Camp at Oral Hull Park/Camp for the Blind,
Located in Sandy Oregon in the early 90's, and that's how my adventure into Ham Radio began.
The first third-party contact on 2 meters occurred.
I was at the 1996 camp and happened to encounter some fellow campers who were Hams.
One of these people, who was responsible in helping others let me get in on a QSO
he was having with another station to work this particular QSO as third-party participant on his hand-held.
That was when I wanted to study for my ticket.
I got connected up with some audio reading material from Courage Handihams and got started.
I continued to hit the books throughout that year, and in June 1997, I took, and passed my No-Code Technician Element Exam.
Back then, there were six license classes. I skipped the Novice Class License because Morse Code/CW was required at 5 wpm.
I simply wanted to get a feel for the hobby.
It was in that same year I began studying for my General License at 13-20 wpm.
I went back in and tested two more times and got my Advanced and Extra Class Licenses.
Just after receiving my No-Code Technician License, I purchased a Radio Shack HTX-202
that had only 12 programmable channels and only had the 2-meter frequencies. BORING!!
A little while later, I found a nice little Kenwood mobile station and a power supply.
It was a really good good little radio because I could receive commercial frequencies like Police, Medical, and the like.
I also purchased a Kenwood H.F. station for 10-80 meters and had a lot of fun with that one.
In April of 2000, I bought a Kenwood Dual-band HT.
Back then, I was living in a duplex where there wasn't enough space for antennas.
That same time Ham Radio was slowly taking a back seat because of limited space.
I was off air for a few years. In 2009, I renewed my License, but still had no radios.
About a year so ago, I reconnected with a long-time member of my area's local
Amateur Radio Club helped get me reconnected with a Baofeng dual-band hand-held that I've still got in my shack.
Within the last 4 to 5 months, I've been working with Echolink,
which is a type of V.O.I.P. software designed for Ham Radio Licensees to use.
My call sign hasn't changed. I have to admit, I accomplished something, and that is to test my Ham Radio knowledge.
To me, it's an achievement. My other hobbies I enjoy are music and some photo/video work,
and attending church worship services, where I participate in our church's worship band/singers on drums, and have also played bass.
My contact email can be found on QRZ. Feel free to email me any time. Best 73's to all Dale, KC7YFE

P.S Dale also is an NCO on the early moning Worldwide Friendship Net.

Next is Rosi VE4YYL. We met Rosi in Las Vegas. On 3-6-18 a group of hams local to Las Vegas were invited to a meet and greet with Rosi and Glenn who were visiting from Canada. The pics and info on this get together are here.

Next we have Joe and Joyce. Joe is KC7GHT and Joyce is KC7LRS.

Enjoy.

10-2-18 Update from Joe:
Hi gang, Joyce and I just finished two new videos and got them uploaded to our dropbox cloud.
The first one is all about the Alien Landing site we discovered while camping in the Northern Arizona outback.
We have no idea how the large imprints in the ground at the bottom of a semi dry swamp lake were formed.
This is a natural lake and as far as we know over the last 35 years Jeeping in the area,
it has been a dangerous place to even try to wade.
We have never been able to see anything from the ground level,
and this was a real surprise to see as we filmed it from our DJI P3P drone camera in HD.
If you figure out what formed it, let us (and the world) know.
This "landing imprint" is a quarter mile long!
Be sure to view them on a large HD or UHD TV screen to see all the details.
There is music with both of them, so turn on your speakers too.
Video 1 Alien site?
The second video is just about our adventures in Arizona over the years.
Don't tell anyone else about all the Arizona secrets- Ha Ha.
You can see all of the rest of our dropbox videos at:
www.tinyurl.com/joeandjoyce anytime you want.
You may also download any that you like.
Cheers, Joe and Joyce KC7GHT and KC7LRS
