First licensed as a ham in June 2015 as AF5ZJ.  As of 21 June 2016, I have been awarded the vanity callsign of KD5K.

I can usually be found on 20m during the day and 40m at night.  I'm partial to digital modes but I like operating all modes.  Learning CW is next on my to-do list.

I'm not particularly active on VHF/UHF but I do enjoy working satellites, operating simplex, and I usually have at least one radio monitoring the central NM repeaters.

I call Albuquerque, NM home.  Home of Breaking Bad, hot air balloons, and green chile.  Grid DM65rb.

I can be found on the Amateur Radio subreddit at www.reddit.com/r/amateurradio and in the #redditnet IRC channel at irc.geekshed.net

LOTW is preferred for QSL's, but I also upload to all the major QSL services.  Paper QSL cards are always welcome and will receive a return card.

I'm happy to schedule a QSO if you need New Mexico on a particular mode or band for an award, or just to chat.
