Thanks for watching Storage Wars NY! You can re-watch the episode at: http://www.aetv.com/storage-wars-new-york/video/the-shore-thing-13675587892#13675587892 I appear a little past the 16 min mark.
So what the heck were we doing with the radio on the show? We were making ham radio contacts. You too can talk around the world without wires, the internet or phone lines while learning about electronics, science and geography by getting involved in ham radio.

You may be looking me up in search of plans for the Iphone ham interface. I will be posting something up in a week or so.
All Singapore contacts as 9V1/N2YTF from the QTH of 9V1PC have been uploaded to LoTW. If you use LoTW and cannot make a match to my records, please email me so I can double check my computer logs against my paper logs.
I have also crafted a special photo QSL card for all of my 9V1/N2YTF contacts. For direct QSL from 9V1/N2YTF send1 USD and your card. Buro cards will bereceive a card via buro. Please note, therewas a mixup with my buro account, so some cards sent by buro may not make it to me.
I had a great time in Singapore,and made contacts on 20m, 40m andSO-50.

I grew up in Flushing, Queens on Long Island (NA-026) in the neighborhood of the Hall of Science Museum, where I was first exposed to Amateur Radio. Queens is one of the five boroughs that make up New York City and is home to the New York Mets.
Later I went on to Stuyvesant High School and Fordham's JD/MBA joint degree program. I am now a member of the New York, New Jersey and New Jersey Federal bars. I experiment with every form of amateur radio I can get my hands on.
I have been active in Sweden as SM0/N2YTF, Finland as OH2/N2YTF, Singapore, Hong Kong, Estonia, Iceland, the UK, and Bahamas. I am registeredwith the North Jersey DX QSL manager in the US (Which is the official ARRL manager for my zone).
I really love operating portable. If you have heard me QRP portable on HF I was using the FT-817 and most likely an end fed HF wire. The picture above is of me operating SO-50 from Cable Beach, Nassau Bahamas, NA-001.
Satellites are also a lot of fun, and there is nothing like a mountaintop location to really get a great signal into the birds.
I am the Vice-President of the Hall of Science Amateur Radio Club(www.hosarc.org). The Hall of Science Amateur Radio Club serves the important purpose of introducing the public and especially young people to amateur radio.
