If you are interested in building Doug Hall's FSKit after reading my article in QST called "Adding Frequency Shift Keying to the TigerTronics SignaLink USB" (May 2013), you can purchase the PCB from Far Circuits. You can purchase a programmed Atmel ATtiny45 microcontroller for the FSKit from me. I will accept a check, money order or use the PayPal/Credit Card [Buy Now] button below. The cost is $7.00 via USA or $12.00 outside USA. I'm sorry for the high cost but USPS Parcel mailings have gone up. Visit my WB3LHD web site for additional information.
After graduating from Electronic Institute in Pittsburgh in 1969, I became interested in ham radio and got my Technician license in February of 1978 at the Federal Building in downtown Pittsburgh. In 1979 I upgraded to Advanced, taking the exam at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall in the Oakland district and in 1989 I upgraded to Extra Class taking the exam (20 WPM) at the Penn State campus in McKeesport. I have retained the same callsign WB3LHD since the beginning.
My first working ham station was in December of 1978. My receiver was a National NC-303 with a 35W homebrew CW transmitter that I built from the 1969 ARRL handbook. The antenna was a random wire with a homebrew transmatch. I got the DX bug in 1989 after purchasing my first cubical quad antenna (Lightning Bolt) and achieved Mixed Honor Roll 4 years later. My main interest is still chasing DX using SSB, CW, RTTY, PSK31, and JT65A. My favorite digital mode is RTTY. I need to work 3 more countries to achieve my final goal of DXCC #1.
I was a member and the Webmaster for the Western PA DX Association. I have been a member of the ARRL since 1978 and was an Official Observer "OO" for the ARRL Amateur Auxiliary. I was the QSL Manager for the USS Requin Submarine-NY3EC docked in the Ohio River at the Carnegie Science Center. I am presently employed at GigaHertz LLC as an RF Engineering Technician. I am the president and QSL manager for the GigaHertz Radio Club-K3ITS.
Some of my most memorable events were visiting ARRL HQ-W1AW in 1994, building my first CW transmitter (35-watts) and working Bouvet Island-3Y5X through my first mega pile-up.
