Thanks for visiting. I have been a Ham radio operator since October 2010. I am currently exploring all of the various modes and bands as much as time permits.

2013 is my first year as a fledgling CW op , so if you came here after a CW QSO, let me apologize for any frustrating experience that you may have had! smileyIt's a work in progress... CW is what kept me away from amateur radio because I didn't think I would enjoy it, so I didn't want to put any effort into learning. Fast forward decades later, as a "no-code Extra", I have come to appreciate the raw simplicity and power of the mode.However, I need a lot more praacctice, but it is getting easier with each contact.

I also enjoy SSB ragchews, especially with DX stations ( as language barriers will allow) to get the "news" directly from the people who are living it. The domestic guys/gals are great too!

My interests include antenna building, radio modification/repair , camping , hiking, and mountain biking. I am looking to integrate amateur radio into the last three as well. As of this writing the "antenna farm" consists of 20, 40, 80, and 160 meter half wave wire dipoles and a home made 2 meter quarter wave.

I am a former coordinator of the QSY society. The society is a bit different than other clubs in that it focuses on discussions of the Amateur Radio hobby at every meeting. The website is http://www.qsysociety.org.

 

My foray into the VHF spectrum and above is limited to mobile FM rigs working local repeaters. One of the local systems is a network of linked repeaters which includes a 10 meter 1300 watt machine with the antenna at approximately 1600 feet. This is almost like having a mobile remote HF station. There are lots of DX opportunities via cross banding while the 10 meter band is open. Very interesting! Unfortunately, we can't tie up the repeater for very long, but it surely helps break up the monotony of long drives!
