Welcome to my homepage!

My name is Andy and my ham radio callsign is KC2SSB (ex: KF4KHC). I have been a ham since June 1996, when I passed the Novice and Technician tests with the Mt Vernon, VA Amateur Radio Club. In addition to KC2SSB and KF4KHC, I was also HL9HCT while I was stationed in Seoul, Korea August 97 - 98.

My current QTH is South River, NJ. I have been a ham in several other locations, including Beachwood, NJ, Toms River NJ, Newport RI, Edison NJ, Clarksville TN/Ft Campbell KY, Seoul South Korea and Fort Belvoir/Woodbridge VA. While I was stationed in Seoul Korea with the US Army, my callsign was HL9HCT. My email: shorecogs (at) comcast (dot) net

My shack

On July 3rd, 2008, I returned to the world of ham radio via a home base. I currently have a Magnum 257 10 meter mobile radio and a Kenwood TS-711A 2 meter all mode in the house. My antennas include an Imax 2000 vertical, a Maco 3 element yagi for 10 meters, a Comet GP-15 triband vertical used on 2 meters FM and a 2 meter halo anntenna, horizontally polarized for 2m SSB. I also have a Magnum 257HP (High Power version) in the car with a Wilson 1000 mobile antenna.
