KD2BLW is my callsign. I live in Mayfield, NY. I work as a Paging systems technician (yes, beepers still are used). My old Supervisor N2PER was the factor in me finally taking up the HAM radio hobby.

Hello Matthew,

Welcome to the Hobby. If you have any questions or need help, please don’t hesitate to ask. You are also welcome to our meetings they are every third Wednesday of the month. Our next meeting is Feb 15 at 7PM. On the main page there is a link to the location.

Do you have a 2m radio? We have 2 on-the-air meetings Tuesdays at 7PM is our formal ARES/RACES net and on Sundays at 8PM is our informal net about everything. You can also use our local repeater by tuning to 146.700Mhz with a -0.600Mhz offset for the input. You can trow in your call, say that you are listening and see if anyone gets back to you.

In addition you could also access our repeater through your computer, mobile smart phone or tablet via echolink. If you need more info about that let us know.

I have a 2M mobile I got from an old supervisor (backlight etc do not work but the radio is good). I am ordering a new radio on probably Monday, and going to save up for a home radio down the road. I’ll have to check out the meetings if I am around. My job keeps me on the road a lot.

I see Feb 15th as the next meeting. I will try to make it but with my schedule, I can never be sure when I have time to do much of anything outside of work. We shall see.

I recently installed my new Yaesu FT-2900R. In the process of programming repeaters etc in there. I’ve got some reading to do on its echolink abilities.
