Born and raised in California, I became fascinated with astronomy as a kid. When it would get too

cloudy to get the telescope out, I'd spend hours at the controls of my good friend' s well-worn

Hallicrafters S-38c, like a safecracker, trying to coax dx signals out of that wonderful old radio.

I am a motion graphic artist & designer.

 

As an SWL I've always had shortwave radios and scanners, so when my wife, Cassie, wanted help

to get her Technician license for her Equine Response Team's emergency communications in 2002,

I got my license too. We have consecutive callsigns: KG6MZR & KG6MZS. I went on to upgrade to

general in 2004, shortly before the FCC eliminated the Morse code requirement. We are both active in

 

THE TOPANGA COALITION FOR EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS.

 

Other interests: sailboat racing (just did my 6th Newport to Ensenada regatta), mountaineering and peakbagging,

skiing (nordic and downhill), movies, music and literature. I have weather station hooked up to my computer and

have been databasing samples from the Davis Weather Monitor II every 5 minutes for well over a decade.

 

My main rig is an ELECRAFT K3/100 which I run barefoot into two multiband doublets fed with my own

home-made 600Ω stealth ladder line up 50+ feet in the eucalyptus trees around my house. I tune them

with a PALSTAR AT2K and an MFJ 259B antenna analyzer. I am mostly active on the digital modes running

HAM RADIO DELUXE and Digital Master 780. I found DM780 a little daunting at first and didn't like the

look of the GUI out of the box. But I have come to love it and customized the GUI to where I really like it.

This is what DM780 looks like on my screen. I have no commercial interest in these products - I'm just

a happy customer.

 

This is what my station looks like now.

 

I am a big fan of PSK Reporter. PSK Reporter is a web page that shows where in the world you are

being heard on a Google Earth map. If you become a monitor station. PSK Reporter shows what stations

your station hears. Very handy way of monitoring the bands while you work or sleep.

 

You can also find me on UHF during my commute on the PAPA Repeater System - a linked system

of 15 repeaters that cover all of Southern California and beyond via Echolink, D-Star and the IRLP

– great system with great people.



I QSL 100% to any request for a card and strongly advocate The ARRL's LOGBOOK OF THE WORLD.

While I love cards, this is a great way to get QSLs. I throughly recommend it. If you haven't signed up yet,

check it out. It's free! I no longer accept eQSL. All cards sent with a request for a card are

returned the way they were sent. My logs are uploaded to QRZ's Logbook and I will confirm QSOs logged

in QRZ's logbook. SASEs are nice but not necessary. Please be patient as I do cards in batches.



Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read my QRZ page.

 

73 and good DX,
