Hi! I'm Pete AKA KE5GGY. I love ham radio and get on the air as much as I can.
Nights, weekends and other times, I'm heatin' up the airwaves from the KE5GGY base station high atop Stone Mountain just north of Dallas, Texas. My main rig is an Icom 756 Pro II, Ameritron 811H Amp, W2IHY Audio Processing and a Heil Pr-40 Mike. Antenna: 75 meter Van Gordon cut for 3.916.
I'm blessed in that I get to work in broadcasting, media and marketing every day. I lead the team at McQ Media, a full service advertising and marketing firm in Dallas, Texas. (www.mcqmedia.us) Prior to launching McQ Media, I worked in radio as a general manager (KWRD, KSKY - Dallas) and as a programmer and air personality (KDWB & WLOL Minneapolis, B94 Pittsburgh, KAFM, Y95 Dallas).
During the day my operating time is limited. I do like to frequent the local DFW repeaters on UHF/VHF on the drive home in the afternoon. When the bands are open, I'll also work 20 and 40 meters.
At night, you can find me on 3.916 starting at around 8:30 PM (Central). That's when we start the 'Tailgate Party' as a lead in for The Freewheeler's Net, which starts at 10:30 PM (Central). Both the Tailgaters & Freewheeler's are friendly groups that always WELCOME NEW HAMS. Check our our Facebook group at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=287629946184&ref=ts#
