Pictured above is a westward view of Puget Sound and Olympic National Park via my home QTH (at 200' above sea level).

I earned my Novice and General Class amateur radio licenses in 1990 (during Solar Cycle 22) thanks to great training classes led by W3WN (then-WN3VAW) at the Community College of Allegheny County (in Pittsburgh, PA), then my Advanced Class license in 1991, and eventually earned my Amateur Extra Class license in March, 2010. I am also presently licensed in Japan as JO4FND.

I am a returned Peace Corps Volunteer and, when serving in Jamaica (1991-93), I was a member of the Jamaican Amateur Radio Association (JARA). 

My station is capable of (and typically operating on) 100% solar power via my 520-watt Kyocera PV system which I designed and installed in 2006.


And, I proudly use the first (#1 of the series) of the Vibrocube keys from Vibroplex. Thanks to Scott, W4PA, for a great key! 
Below -- we were part of the 2015-16 CQ Magazine International Calendar. :)



Riley (aka "Papa Whisker") and I monitor many HF, VHF, and UHF "furquencies."  We can typically be found on the 20, 40, 80 and 160 meter bands, within CW portions and on / around 14.250, 7.177, 3.777 and 1.843 MHz. On 2-meter and 70-cm's, I frequent the following repreaters ("E" = Echolink capabilties):

  • W7AW at 441.800 MHz (Tone: 141.3hz, E).
  • WW7PSR at 146.960 (Tone: 103.5hz, E).
  • WW7SEA at 444.555 (Tone 141.3).
  • K7PP at 443.400 MHz (Tone: 123hz).

And, via DSTAR on various reflectors. Look for me on "Last Heard" at DSTARusers.org.

BTW, for DSTAR, since December 2012, I've been using two nifty Raspberry Pi Model B computers 24/7 -- one to support my 70cm DVAP and other to support the new DV3000 chip (via NW Digital Radio). Weighing in at a few ounces and using only a few watts of (solar) power, they demonstrate that a few milliamperes of continuous operation can go many miles (or kilometers)! :)


I am also a Board member of the West Seattle Amateur Radio Club (WSARC) and a member the Western Washington DX Club, and a volunteer for the Seattle Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS), an affiliate of the King County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and the Division of Emergency Management for the City of Seattle.

I contribute to Technician Class license courses via WSARC and the Seattle Amateur Radio Trainingand serve as a ARRL Volunteer Examiner (VE).

Oh, and I volunteer for the Communications Team of the American Red Cross serving King & Kitsap Counties, WA.

Other club memberships over the years:

  • Jamaican Amateur Radio Association (JARA), (1991-1993);
  • China Radio Sport Association (CRSA, 2006-2008);
  • University of Pittsburgh's Panther Amateur Radio Club (PARC, 1989-1991);
  • University of Tennessee Amateur Radio Club (UTARC, 1994-1997).
