Welcome to my QRZ site! The wife and I recently moved from the country to the city in preparation for our baby girl. We welcomed our daughter into the family on 11/23/2010 @ 0926 in the morning. I'm very blessed to have two healthy beautiful girls in my life and look forward to the years to come. My primary focus in the hobby will probably be HF for now. I completed all my goals on 144+ bands and looks forward to some new goals on the lower bands. I will still maintain my beacon on 2 meters (144.288) and who knows, as spring comes back around maybe I'll put up a Par Omni or something on 2 meter ssb :^) I'm still toying around with the idea of a remote station at a local 100' tower that I have access too. I've done some remote work in the past and it was very successful. But for now if you hear me on the bands, it's most likely from my new qth in the city. See You on the Bands!

I also installed a 2 meter beacon about two years ago; it is still currently transmitting on 144.288 (VVV de N0YK/B DM98mg). Consists of a pair of M2 stacked Ho Loops @ 100', feed with Andrews 1/2 hardline and runs 30 watts into the coax in the shack. I'm very interested in propagation reports that stations receive from it, so if you have time please email them to me.
