Curtis and Jessica Mohr - About Me
Curtis & Jessica Mohr

Hello and thanks for checking out my site, I’m sure that you want to know all about me! First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Curtis Mohr, K5CLM and to the left of me in the picture is my beautiful wife, Jessica. We have been married since 2010 and we have four wonderful foster children(as of the time of this edit (12-2015). We, unfortunately, do not have any children of our own. We currently have children ranging from 14 months to 11 years, all girls except one. Needless to say, I am outnumbered.

I hold an Amateur Extra class license, and 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. Starting in 2013, my life started to change a lot, so I 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 get emails when I publish a new post, 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. Also, please like me on Facebook, and follow me on Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. Links to all of my social media pages are located on the menu under Social. Again, thanks for visiting my new Blog and I hope that you will come back and again.

    Hello Curtis, I too am in Johnson County, Burleson to be exact. I need to study and take my technician license exam. I am new to ham and very excited, just don’t have the gear yet. Hope to meet you soon. Any tips on study material?

    • Howdy! If you goto w5yi.com I believe(if not do a search for w5yi on Google) you can purchase study material from them. There are several clubs here in Johnson county, the Mansfield club meets on the first sat of the month I believe. They normally have a testing session every meeting I believe. We have the Johnson county club that meets on the 4th sat maybe don’t remember for sure at different locations and then the tx Adventist emergency communications in Keene that meets on the third Sunday at 7p. We normally have enough people to give a test at each meeting. We normally give at least one class a year that last 5 weeks on one night a week, more if we have the interest. The Mansfield club has a couple a year I think.
      As far as study tips, read only the correct answers, reading the wrong answers will just confuse your mind come test day. Take practice test online at qrz.com and when u can pass them consistently with a 70+ you are ready to take a test and third is more of a testing tip rather than a study one. When you take the test, don’t change an answer unless you are 1000% sure that you marked the wrong answer. I have had more people miss a question that they changed. 95% of the time it was right the first time

    Thank you! Hopefully I’ll see you around at one of the club meetings.

    I do believe all of the concepts you’ve presented on your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    That is the precise weblog for anyone who desires to search out out about this topic. You realize a lot its almost exhausting to argue with you (not that I actually would need…HaHa). You positively put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!
