Areas of Interest (i.e. CW, DX, Packet, etc.):: QRP, VHF/ UHF, Light Contesting
Brief History of Activities Related to Ham Radio:: I got my Tech license in 2012 and Extra a few months later. I really enjoy field day and other public facing ham radio events.

Your thoughts on what benefits you receive as a Club Member:: I think the club van and the local VHF/UHF repeaters are great. I also enjoy the monthly meetings.
Your thoughts on which direction the Club should go and grow:: Long term I think it would be nice for the club to have a station and maybe a small steel building where we could hold meetings/events. I’d also think we would benefit from interfacing with WTAMU and Amarillo College.
