BBQing Ham
No this isn't about how to BBQ ham but rather a HAM that BBQs. Let me splain. We BBQ type people seem to have lots of other hobbies. One of mine is Amateur (HAM) Radio. At a local ham swap meet the weekend I ran across this fellow and I had to ask him about the call. Turns out he is Doug Maurer from Pleasant Grove and he loves cooking and eating Q so much he requested an on air call sign that fits him.
He not only cooks but builds his own smokers and is in the process of building one out of 3/8 inch thick propane tank. He is thinking of hooking a cast iron stove on the back for a firebox.
I invited him to come aboard and pick the brains of some of the talent we have here.
Doug, are you here?

I got a vanity call sign when I got my general license. It is W3HQO.

RE: BBQing Ham
Welcome to the forums WE7BBQ, should we make room for the other 6?

Respice = you didn't use enough spice the first time! adspice = you ought to add spice, you know? prospice = you should be an advocate for spice!

Lol,she saved my life in January when i had a heart attack and made me go to the hospital.Course,she is a cardiac ICU rn,so that was a no-brainer that she made me go....Anyway,i met some of the guys at the dutch over cookout in Farmington a few years ago and remembered the Utah BBQ assn.had a nice pork sammie and enjoyed it,then met Larry at the VHF society swapmeet,i didnt know he was a ham also! The two go together like pulled pork and cole slaw! So when i have my big daddy ready you can bet it will have provisions for a portable antenna arry of varying capacities so's me n Larry can tell lies and bbq secrets.Great meeting you and am very proud to be a member,and also being numero dos in our radio club in Utah Co. anyone wishing to chat BBQ or whatever,i can be found at 146.760 most anytime,course you got my call,how can a BBQ'R forget it.Keep them eyes open fer me when i get er done,it aint gonna be all fancy chromed out and have sidepipes,but i'll guarantee it'll smoke.See ya'll soon,i guess ill have to start looking to find me a team name......stay tuned.....WE7BBQ
