April 23, 2021: I now accept eQSL requests and I'll soon be able to accept LOTW requests once I'm activated on their system. Don't worry, I'll still accept paper QSL cards, I love receiving paper QSL cards. I also will still accept Email QSL cards as well.

Big update to the VHF/UHF and also the HF part of the "About" section. I'm still planning on getting the pictures updated in the gallery, but I've been lazy. I'll get those pictures updated whenever I can.
February 6, 2021:
My hub now has an unofficial DMR talkgroup! See the "Repeater & Hub" page for more information. Also, in an earlier announcement, I said I would incorporate the owl into my logo design... I decided against doing that, because it will be too much work, but my updated QSL cards do contain a reference to my "Old Mother Owl" handle.
January 27, 2021: I'm now accepting QSL card requests via Postal Mail! I'm still accepting QSL card requests via Email. See my "About" page for more information.
January 9, 2021:
Yay! I got a 4 digit allstar node number now! With that, I have created a hub. See "About" for information. A new page has been created with information about how to access my repeater and hub so you don't have to look for it in my about page.
January 8, 2021:
A while back, I came up with some neat phonetics for the last 3 letters of my callsign and I'll be incorporating that into the logo and website when I have time. The phonetics are "Old Mother Owl". Also, changes have been made to my nodes. See "About" for information.
Dec 22, 2020
Changes are coming, the website will be updated ASAP.
This is both my personal and my amateur radio site.
This website is currently under construction, therefore things will be messy, ugly & incomplete until I finish it.
I will also be adding more content to this website when I can, so stay tuned.
Website updated May 13, 2022
"Kimberly" isn't legally my name yet, but it will be in the future. I have to state this because some people in the amateur radio community have complained about me using a different name from the name registered in the FCC database. Regardless if my name is legal or not, I would much prefer to be called "Kimberly" and thus, I will refer to myself exclusively as "Kimberly" on the air.
Also, It would be greatly appreciated if you please treat me as a young lady.
Oh, and one more thing: HamAlert does not always show that I'm on the air, especially when I'm talking on voice modes.
