Jan Heiser, AA5JH at his station
Jan Heiser - I have been a licensed Amateur Radio Operator since the early 1990's. My first callsign was KB7ROK. I had a vanity license plate in Wyoming with my callsign at the time and on many occasions people thought that I worked for a radio station with that callsign. I am retired Air Force and settled in the beautiful town of Harlingen. My station consists of an Icom IC-7300, MFJ-993B antenna tuner, Diamond BB7 vertical antenna, Yaesu VX-6 VHF/UHF HT, two CW keys, R&L Electronics power supply, and two Apple Macintosh computers with other various support equipment. I use SDR-Control on my Macs to operate my 7300 for both FT-8 and SSB.

Tom Mclemore WT5TX's Radio Shack. Primary Radio is an Icom 7300.
Tom McLemore - I have been interested in radio since I was a young kid. Never really had the chance to get my license until I was a grown man. Got my Technician and General license in April of 2021 upgraded to Extra in July 2021 and am learning as much as I can as fast as I can. My station is an ICOM-7300 at 100 watts and I built the CobWeb antenna as my first stab at getting on HF, the cobweb is up on the new tower and working well. I also use a homebrew EFHW for 80-10.
