I became a Ham in France as F6ATJ in 1968 and was active for a few years before college. After many years of inactivity, I came back to the hobby in 1991, after I had moved to the US.
My interests include chasing DX and casual contesting on HF and VHF (6m and 2m SSB/CW for now), and experimentation on the microwave bands. I do not mind a good ragchew every now and then with my local friends on 2m FM either.
I made my 1st 10 GHz SSB QSO during Field Day 2005, about 10 miles over water, and I would like to setup skeds in SSB or CW for longer distances. I run 10W into a 2" offset dish with a decent LNA. This is strictly a portable setup though, as I have no way to clear the trees at my QTH.

My Tower Project web page was featured in ARRL's Surfing at ARRL's web site at www.arrl.org/news/features/2003/12/05/1/
My web site www.ko4bb.com for ham radio and non-ham related projects and software, including ADIFLookup, a program to fill up contest logs with information (such as name, address and QSL Manager, from the QRZ.com database and others) before importing into your general logging software. This software now requires a QRZ subscription to function, sorry. Send comments to QRZ.com. My web site also includes a growing repository of ham and non-ham equipment service and operations manuals (HP, Tek, Fluke and others.)
