Hi, I’m Josh, W0HC. I’ve been licensed since 1991 and have been working in the communications industry since 1995. This website will be a place for me to share a bit of information about myself, my hamshack, and any other information that may be interesting. I’m married to KC0AMY, who tolerates the ham radio stuff quite well. We have a boy, a girl, two dogs, and a cat. Who could ask for a more perfect family?
Over the past 18 years of hamming, I’ve been mostly on the VHF and UHF repeaters, but gained an interest in HF a couple of years ago, and now that’s my favorite place to hangout, looking for DX on 20 and 40 meters. I run 10m mobile in my truck, and have a blast with that. I hope to someday upgrade to a full HF mobile station, but there’s plenty of time for that.
I’ve been involved as a volunteer with our local Emergency Management Agency for the past six years or so. Together we have formed a nice partnership which allowed us to start a local ham radio club, build a 2m repeater, and outfit the Emergency Operations Center with a pretty nice setup. I’ve had an interest in Amateur Television since I got into the hobby, but have never really pursued it. I hope to change that real soon. I have most of the parts needed to get on the air with ATV, I just haven’t found the time to put it all together yet. 73, and I hope to hear you on the bands!
