Ham Member Lookups: 2609

 

Thanks for stopping by my QRZ page! 

I've been a Ham for just shy of a quarter century, and have enjoy every bit of it. I mainly work 2 meter and 6 meter with a splash of HF on 20/40/80. The rig is a Yaesu FT-847 with an LDG Z-100Plus autotuner. I have a home made 6 meter dipole, a Comet CA-52HB4 4 element beam for 6 meters, an old second hand 2m/70cm vertical that I can't identify anymore but it still works like gang busters. 

I use Mac and Linux computers for my shack/podcast studio. I mostly use the Ubuntu Linux distro for Rivendell Radio Automation and Ubuntu Studio as my aux machine for recording the podcasts. I also have an Arrakis ARC-8 brodcast console to tie everything together. The mics I use in the studio are a CAD GXL2200 and Audio Technica ST-95 MKII for the guest mics, and the main mic I use is a Heil PR-40. 

I've worked in broadcast radio for over 20 years in Albany and Utica, N.Y., Rapid City, S.D., and my home town of Gloversville, N.Y., mostly on air with some dabbling on the engineering side. And I have also worked for Apple for the last 7 years. Outside of Ham Radio, I love playing roleplaying games, like Dungeons & Dragons, Gamma World, and am starting to get into miniture wargaming, like Star Wars X-Wing. I should also mention I am a BIG Star Wars fan. I feel lucky enough to say I was able to see the first run of Episode IV, before it was called Episode IV, with my oldest sister who got me hooked on Star Wars and Science Fiction in general. 

I also run a blog called X-Jock at http://xjockalbanyny.com. My ex-broadcast cohorts and myself also have podcasts associated with the blog called The X-Cast and #GeekShow, which you can find on iTunes, and a few other assorted podcast directories

You can find me on Twitter: @kb2mob, or on Facebook: http://facebook.com/mobbyg as well as a bunch of the Amateur Radio groups on Facebook.
