Welcome all fellow amateur radio operators to my QRZ homepage!
I am a Network Engineer by profession. In late 2015 I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science in Information Science. Since then I have been very busy working and starting my career (hence not as much time for Ham Radio unfortunately!). I'm currently working as a Network Engineer for the Intermedix Corporation (http://www.intermedix.com). My daily responsibilities are maintaining a large and diverse corporate network that spans many different locations and countries. I specialize in Cisco routers, switches, and firewalls and hold a Cisco Certified Network Analyst (CCNA) certification.
I'm an avid contester (especially CW). I spend most of my time on ham radio chasing DX on CW and participating in CW contests (DX and Domestic).
I had no idea Ham Radio existed up until I discovered a local 2 meter repeater when I was playing with a scanner that had been untouched for years in my closet. From that moment, my life was changed forever. I soon discovered the amazing world of Amateur Radio and was first licensed as KB3UVK in June of 2010. I attended my first Field Day about a week after I got my license. I was HOOKED! A SSB QSO I made with the help of my control operator between Pennsylvania and California did me in. I wanted to learn everything! Only 3 months after I received my Technician class ticket, I attended another VE session where I passed both the General and Extra class elements. About a month later, my callsign change went through and I was assigned AB3LS.
I operate from my home QTH in Harrisburg with an Elecraft K3 and an Alpha Delta DX-LB Plus for 160-10 meters. In the car, I have a Yaesu FTM-350AR 50W mobile for 2/440 and I'm active on APRS as AB3LS-9. For portable use, I own a Kenwood TH-D72A for 2/440 + APRS, and a Yaesu VX-8DR for 6/2/220/440 + APRS, and active as AB3LS-7.
I was President of the Panther Amateur Radio Club (W3YI) at the University of Pittsburgh from 2014-2015.
