Welcome to my QRZ page
Hello my friends I am a retired Fire Captain with 35 years in Federal Fire Service DOD.
I go by the name "Ding", it's a nickname I've had my whole life but also answer to Robert.
As you can see I enjoyed the fire service but now that I am retired
I am enjoying my new adventure as a ham radio enthusiast
A giant thank you goes out to my XYL Deborah K4NRS for supporting my hobby unconditionally!
See you soon on SSTV, the waterfall or on voice.

God bless and rest in peace my dear brothers
You will forever be missed but never forgotten... Ding N4CPT

My newfound mode of amateur radio is both Digital & Analogue SSTV. My choice of software is EasyPal for Digital and MMSSTV for Analogue.
There is a lot of info you can checkout on Pauls SSTV site...and yes he will personally help you with problems or questions. My # 1 goto site for SSTV.
Due to the chaos and overuse of the 20 meter band The N-SSTV Group are promoting the use of Narrow Band SSTV on the WARC Bands, IE: 12-17 and 30 meters.
Founders: Danny ON4VT, Terry EA3EWO, Tasos SV2HZT and Cris YO3FWL
Join them and become a member....see you narrow!
