Sun Valley, Nevada , USA


Hello from Northern Nevada!

My name is Tim but I go by Timothy on the air so people don't confuse me for Jim or Kim or Ken or some other random name that isn't mine.

I may not talk much, but if I am awake, I'm probably listening. I always monitor the SNARS Linked System and 146.520.

I passed my general exam on 21 August 2021 and am now having a lot of fun getting into HF. I picked up an old radio and built my own antenna. I decided to move my shack into a trailer and get everything out of the house. I've been trying to join various nets, like the HHH net which I find a lot of fun. Unfortunately there is usually way too much noise at my house, like S6 or more most nights, so it doesn't work out very well. Soon I'll be moving to TN with more land, and I'll be bringing my radio with me when I'm looking for land so I can make sure it's a quieter area.

I really like the Parks on the Air concept. And after we move I'm going to try to really get into that. Mountain bikes and a portable HF set up in a backpack. I think it will be absolutely awesome!

If you spot my Land Rover say hi! I'll be listening and I'd love to hear from you!

I recently added a blog sort of thing to this site. You'll find random the things I'm doing, some videos, and other random little updates in it. It's in the site navigation at the top or left of the site.
