Paula has been a licensed ham since 1996. She is a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary and is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. She enjoys enjoys using ham radio to help at community events and SCUBA diving.
When newly licensed as KB0YGT back in 1996, Paula participated as an operator in a local public service winter event. She wrote her callsign on a leather glove so she could remember and use it when communicating. Later she served as a go-between at another event. Paula had a 2 meter hand-held in one hand and an FRS (Family Radio Service) radio in the other. The goal was to bridge the communications gap between licensed and unlicensed operators. That worked out fairly well except she sometimes used her ham callsign on the FRS radio with those people wondering what she was talking about!This Amateur Radio station and the radio-equipped Lodge Car are complimentary customer services of the one and only Gilbert Lodge.
