Welcome to my new Amateur Radio Blog!


Hello and welcome to my blog. First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Curtis Mohr, K5CLM. I hold an Amateur Extra class license. I have been a ham radio operator since 1995. I am involved in the local Skywarn/RACES/ARES organizations in Johnson County, TX and I am currently serving as Vice-President for Texas Adventist Emergency Communication or TAEC for short. Shortly after getting my license, I helped organize this club and have been an officer in some capacity ever since.

Over the years since I got my license, I have done many things both with and without amateur radio, sometimes neglecting my hobby and getting away from it for a while. I went nearly two years without having a radio in my vehicle! ::gasp:: I know, hard to believe right. Well, anyway, much has happened in my life over the past year and I have had to cut back on my extracurricular activities. So I have pulled back everything except for my amateur radio hobby.

However, one thing that I have ALWAYS wanted to do was to write something; A book, a blog, something. Throughout my reading about writing, one of the things that was said over and over again was to write about what you know. So, I asked myself what do I write about? Well, there is two things that I have the most experience in.  The first is my career in 911 dispatching. After thinking about it for a while, and thinking about what kind of blog entries I could write that would appeal to others, I decided to go with my first love, Amateur Radio.

I can think of so much more stuff to write about that will hopefully appeal to more people. On top of this, as I’m writing new entries, I can learn stuff myself to pass on to my club. So it’s a win-win situation!

I hope that you find my blog interesting, that you subscribe to it and share it with your friends. Please let me know if there is anything that you are interested in learning about and I will work it into my topic schedule. Again, thanks for visiting my new Blog and I hope that you will come back and again.

Curtis Mohr, K5CLM
