Welcome to My KC7NYR Amateur Radio Site. My name is Mark, KC7NYR. I am a Licensed Amateur Radio Operator.  I was first licensed in 1994. During my working years tried to stay active on the air as much as possible. As you know, family, work and life had precedence. In 1996 I obtained my 7 call sign for Oregon. I was originally licensed in Sacramento, California, I really didn’t like my call sign. I was moving my family north and we settled in Oregon.

I obtained my current call sign, KC7NYR in 1996 and I loved it. I have no plans to change it when I obtain my extra class License, one day. 

When I arrived in Oregon I was Elmered by W7LRB, Lucky! He is a silent key now, a huge loss to the Amateur Radio community and to me personally. He educated me on ARES, FEMA and how to become a Net Control Station. 

So in 1998 I started as a Net Control Station for the ARES District 1 Net here in Oregon. I quickly became the ARES District 1 Net Manager. I only held this position until the work schedule didn’t allow. This is when I met Hal, KC7ZZB, what a great elmer and friend. Hal agreed to by the Assistant Net Manager, what an honor. Hal is currently the District 1 Net Manager and I am the Assistant Net Manager. We are back together after 20 years, now that’s Amateur Radio which is running the D1 Net and serving our served agencies in Oregon.
