If you're coming to this page because we just had a QSO, this is probably where I was operating from. This is my "shack" and my home office. I'm currently operating a Yaesu FT-857 on HF (when possible with the RF noise around here), an Icom ID-880H on D-STAR (currently hanging out on REF-30C most of the time), and a Yaesu FTM-100DR on System Fusion / Wires-X.
I prefer digital modes like JT9/JT65 due to the noise levels here, but also really enjoy PSK31 when able. I even dabble in CW and SSB on occasion.
If you look closely to the bottom left, you can see two of my Raspberry Pies. The top one is an ADS-B receiver uploading to FlightAware and FlightRadar24. The bottom one is a listen-only APRS IGate feeding APRS-IS (antenna was damaged, hope to be back on the air soon).
If I worked you while mobile I was probably in my beat up old 2006 Buick Rendezvous, where I once again have an Icom ID-880H and a Yaesu FTM-100DR. I'm hoping to add a DV4mobile to both the shack and the mobile as soon as they release it so that I can start messing around with DMR. I'd go the Motorola route, but I just can't afford the radios and the software.
My other interests are cycling and kayaking.
I also enjoy spending time with my family when they feel like spending time with me (those of you that have teenagers will understand...).
I also occasionally dabble (poorly) in woodworking, mainly to make things for the kids, like this planform replica of one of the guns used in the Halo video game.
Thanks for stopping by!
