I am making a commitment to be more active with this site, as it is a great resource to our club.

So, here goes..

My name is Evan, W8KJR.
I was originally licensed in 2005 at age 14, and upgraded to General class 2 years later. I first joined FRC this year.
I had a blast running nets and meeting new people on VHF/UHF but wasn't very active on HF until after my hiatus from the hobby that started somewhere about the time I began college and simultaneous full time employment; and lasted about 3-4 years.

In 2012 I had a renewed fire for the hobby and finally put together my first HF station at home... which was much easier to do, once I actually owned a home.

I am typically "radioactive" either on HF or VHF 2-3 times per week... I enjoy using our club repeaters, DX'ing and nets on HF, Digital modes like WSPR, PSK31, JT65, APRS, and love the National Parks on The Air event and have completed 1 activation with a goal of at least 2 more.

In June of 2016 I took over as Emergency Coordinator for our beautiful county. I love Findlay OH, amateur radio, and emergency preparedness, so it just makes sense I suppose.

Aside from my ham related activities, I enjoy camping and sight-seeing with my wife and our 4 year old siberian husky, firearms & shooting, and have been a guitarist and songwriter for nearly 10 years.
Evan, W8KJR
