W8SBL Steve

First licensed in 1995 as KC8BTP after taking an amateur radio course in high school.  I tested and took 5wpm Morse Code and was granted a Technician Plus license.  I let the license expire before ever I ever got on the air.  I retested again in 2016 and was granted KE8EKM, and later upgraded and applied for W8SBL.

I now enjoy building and experimenting with homebrew antennas, radios, and gear.  I also enjoy radio control models, airplanes, trucks and buggies, and have scratch built two radio control river towboats.  You can find me often on Hillsboro’s 147.210 Mhz, Wilmington 147.120 Mhz on occasion, and 444.575 Snow Hill, as well as the 10 meter nets on 28.421.  I enjoy HF and slow scan as well.

Looking forward to meeting you in person and on the air!
