Meet W7TDC

Hello and thank you for visiting my website! My name is Trevor Conroy, W7TDC and I am 17 years old. I was licensed in April of 2000 as a Technician licesee holding the callsign of KD7IOZ. I started my antenna and radio collection almost immidiatly and quickly became a very active ham. I participated in local nets as well as becoming a member of the McMinnville Amateur Radio Club and the Yamhill County Amateur Radio Emergency Service. In November of 2000 I upgraded to General Class and attained the vanity callsign of W7TDC. I borrowed a Ramsey 20M tranciever from a friend untill I upgraded to Extra class in July of 2001. I then aquired an Icom 746 in August of 2001 after the annual EAA Fly-In in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I then started to really rack up the QSO's for the next year. I started contesting and learning what all that is about as well as setting up a good station. I got a Mosley TA-33 yagi for 10/15/20 with 3 elements. It is atop a 30ft tower in my backyard. It's been a really good antenna and pretty much gets me wherever I need to go. I then completed my HF Station n August of 2003 when I aquired an Icom 756PROII. The PROII is a great radio with amazing features such as the spectrum scope that just lights up beautifully during contests. During the summer of 2003, I got a new Mosley TA-33 atop the tower. I kept the old one in hopes to some day stack them. I also have an Ameritron AL-80A amplifier that I completely rebuilt. It gives me a nice clean 800-1KW power output depending on the band. I do use other modes such as SSTV and Packet. I'm primarly an SSB operator but I will make the occasional CW contact. Thanks again for visiting my site! If you have any questions about me or would like to contact me, feel free to e-mail me.
