First Call: KB2GPB

Hi, my name is Dolores (Dee) for short.I have had a Novice License for about 35 years and of course my favorite was 10 meters. However, between my career and raising a family there wasn't much time left for ham radio. I decided to get back into amateur radio when I retired from teaching. My previous call sign was KB2GPB. My dad was a ham operator in the late 30's and early 40's. His call sign was W3IHP. I decided to keep the W3I and add my initials DB Resulting in my present call sign W3IDB. Recieved General in March 2009 and Extra in July 2009.

I am a retired Physics Teacher/Adj Professor from NJ. I belong to ARES and am an ARRL VEC.

A few of us started a YL group here in Citrus County Florida. We have 10-15 YLs We have a YL net every Tuesday on 2 meters at 10 am local time on the CCARC repeater 146.955 MHz and a tone of 103.5 Hz. All are welcome come and say Hi.

Just got into DMR. Very interesting stuff. I have a TYT DMR with an open spot plugged into my modem. I operate on Tac 310 and on Group known as Nature Coast. Come say Hi.

Just bought a FLEX 5000 and am learning to use it. So far I am loving it.

I look forward to hearing from you. 73 W3IDB
