N3PBQ (Mark Shallenberger)

I reside in Northern Crawford County in a nice home with my lovely wife and 2 boys. To get in touch with me simply watch the above banner and send me an email or instant message when the option appears.

You may be curious what N3PBQ stands for. That is the callsign issued by the FCC that allows me to transmit on several frequencies around the world. My purpose for having a radio license is to assist the public in times of need. It has also grown to be a great hobby for me.
It isn't difficult to become a member of the amateur radio community. In fact, the FCC has made it even easier for anyone to get a license. I, myself, was licensed when I was 16 and my sister became licensed at a very young age. So, age isn't a factor at all, in fact many of the amateur radio community are senior citizens looking for something to do in the spare time they have. By The Way, You don't have to learn morse code to become a radio operator...and if you do want to learn the code language then you'll be allowed to talk on more frequencies.
