Thanks for stopping by.
Though I held a novice license back in the late 60's (WN8THM), I only got back into amateur radio a couple of years ago. My main rig is a Yaesu FTDX9000D with a YL-1000 amplfier into 3-element SteppIR at 17m height on the north shore of Lake Pend Oreille in beautiful N Idaho.
As a retired applied physcist who traveled a lot as part of the job, amateur radio provides a terrific outlet for tinkering and at the same time, another way to "see" the world. My former job took me to many places, most frequently the Russian Federation, Peoples' Rebublic of China, and Europe, and I still do a bit of that pro bono. However, these days when I travel it's often for fly-fishing or pointing dog field trialing...not sure how I ever had time to work.
The shack ... I am a Mac guy to keep my sanity.
3-element SteppIR = 8 bands = awesome!
Locals on an older antenna feedline -- should have buried it, I guess, but who would have anticipated this!
A July view from the shack -- perigee moon rise over a small arm of Lake Pend Oreille.
The QTH: first day of spring one year
Rio Grande River, Tierra del Fuego 12 kilo brown trout
Everglades Backcountry snook on a fly -- my favorite sport/fish/place
