Welcome to Ham Spotlight

 


I will be "Spotlighting" 52 hams this year who have been active in contributing to Amateur Radio. You will see young and experienced hams and get a chance to get to know them. As you see each one, please take a moment to drop them a line so you can get to know them as well. Now, introducing this weeks ham.

 I thought I would start of this year with yours truly.  My name is Matt Anderson and my call sign is KAØBOJ and I am the current section manager for the Nebraska section of the ARRL

I have been licensed since 1976 and I have kept the same call sign since.  I grew up in Ceresco, Nebraska and under the influence of my father Marvin Anderson KAØEOE (SK) became involved with Amateur Radio.  My dad was very influential in helping me to get my ticket and as you can tell by his call sign actually got his call sign a few years later along with my brother Dan KAØEOF.

I was previously married for nearly 26 years to my first wife Gwen Anderson KØGAA (SK) and have been blessed to be remarried to my high school sweetheart Tracy for 11 years now.  I have 3 children from my frist marriage.  Evan KCØCWP, Nick and Natalie.  I have one grand daughter Luna Grace.

January 1st 2020 begins my 12th year as the Nebraska Section Manager.  Not all at one time, but 12 years total.  It is an honor I believe strongly in and am thankful for the confidence given to me by the membership of Nebraska.

I enjoy many aspects of the hobby, including CW,. digital modes, chasing DX, Ragchewing, antenna building and elmering.  My home set up consists of a Yaesu FT-1000MP, TH7DX and dipole and long wire antennas.  I have a secondary radio a Kenwood TS-140S and a Yaesu FT-101EE.  I am very active HF mobile with an Icom 7000 and Little Tarheel II.

I am a founding member of the Ashland Amateur Radio Club KØASH and trustee to that call sign.  I am also a founding member of the Branched Oak Observatory Amateur Radio Club NØBOO, and the Child Evangelism Fellowshipi Amateur Radio Club KØCEF.

I never cease to be amazed at this wonderful hobby.  Everytime I get on the air it is a new adventure and I love talk and meet new people.  It's what keeps me coming back.

I look forward to building the Nebraska Section with your help and I look forward to seeing you on the air.

Matt - KAØBOJ
