APRS

I have a weather station on APRS. This link will load a webpage with the current weather and weather history at and around my location. My APRS station consists of an Alinco DR-135 with the embedded TNC. I use UI-View32, Weather Display software, and a Davis Vantage Vue wireless weather station to send weather reports to fellow hams, the National Weather Service, and the world.

You can get an idea about 2 meter VHF propagation at my location by looking here. The page reports on what my APRS station is receiving on 144.39 MHz with an Arrow Antenna J-Pole mounted at about 25 feet. It also shows what APRS stations are receiving my 5 watt beacon. When I am receiving stations over 100km in distance, it usually signifies a tropospheric opening in the Central NJ area.

Station

My HF station consists of a Ten Tec Orion II, a Ten Tec Eagle, a Kenwood TS-2000, an MFJ-998 Intellituner, and wire antennas. For 80-10 I use an Alpha Delta DX-CC. This is a physically short antenna on 80m, but it uses coils to make up the length and performs well. It consists of three wires to form a fan dipole and I QSLd my first 100 countries on 100 watts. I also have the help of an Ameritron AL-811H when I need it. A 130' inverted L with four radials makes 160m possible. There's a small antenna farm in the attic as well, covering 50 - 927 MHz.

It is fun to listen as well as transmit.  I have a Perseus SDR and will often keep it online for remote users when I am not using my antennas.  I also reacquired a Drake R8B, a great receiver made by one of the best radio manufacturers that ever was.

On the air

If you want to find me on the air, I usually monitor the K2GE repeater when I am in the car and around the house. In addition to VHF and UHF inputs in Sayreville, NJ, you can connect via Echolink (155481) and IRLP (4789). I monitor 146.52 MHz and other simplex frequencies and can be found on D-Star and DMR (3134090).

Clubs and Awards

I am a member of the Raritan Bay Radio Amateurs, the North American Shortwave Assocation, the Longwave Club of America, and the Canadian International DX Club. I hold Triple Play, WAS and DXCC certificates from the ARRL, as well as a DX Centurion from NASWA for QSLing over 100 SWBC countries.

Other Activities

I write a quarterly column for CQ Plus called "RF Bits", covering the intersection of radio and computers.  I also am a beta tester for Ham Radio Deluxe, helping the development team test new features and swat software bugs.
