Thank you very much for visiting my QRZ page.  The "shack" has been in a constant state of flux and the focus has been on experimentation rather than operation.  Here's a brief description of some projects that might be of interest.

Currently I have been attempting to place a "PiGate" into service.  If you are an "ARES" type, you might find Mark Griffith's PiGate a great addition to your Go Box.  Initial testing has been done with a Raspberry Pi 2 and a TNC-Pi 2.  So far the unit works quite well for VHF packet, and testing continues in an effort to add HF Pactor to it's capabilities.  If you'd like a WinLink system that fits in your glovebox visit Mark Griffith's website at:  http://www.pigate.net/welcome.html

Ground has been broken for the installation of a DisasterGuy TF-25 Titan telescoping pole which will support a M2 LEO satellite antenna system.  Precision tracking will be provided by Portable Rotation's newly released AZ/EL Portable Rotor System.  The satellite system will be supported with an Icom IC-9100 transceiver interfaced with PCSat32 and PST Rotator.  Here are the links:  http://www.disasterguy.net/17701.html   http://www.portablerotation.com  http://www.m2inc.com

The current satellite system is a bit humbler and consists of a Yeasu FT-8900 FM transceiver (full duplex) pushing a Arrow 146/437 Solid Boom antenna modified to fit my tripod with an extended handle.  PPT was added near that handle, and a 4 channel headphone amp gives guests a chance to enjoy hearing a live satellite QSO.  A Tascam digial audio recorder has proven handy for those "What was the callsign?" moments, and the addition of a Comet CF-4160 duplexer allows the 35 watts necessary to work AO-85's deaf receiver.  If you would like to log a QSO through a repeater "Not on this planet", then visit http://arrowantennas.com/index.html and boldly go.

The "low frequency" project has stalled due to a very lazy HAM who dislikes burying radials in the rain.  Winter arrived too fast to get the radials installed on a 160 meter Inverted-L Bazooka antenna.  http://iacantennas.com  I currently hold an experimental license, WH2XZM, for the 630 meter band.  I will be working that band this coming winter using a Flex-1500 SDR and a transverter from MF Solutions.

Our LNR Precision End Fed Quad Band antenna is slated to be replaced next week with a Buckmaster Off Center Fed 7-band Stealth rated at 3 KW.  The LNR product is excellent and has given good service, but frankly, I've just felt a need for more wire in the air, more bands, and room to grow "wattage wise".

If you find me on the air these days it will most likely be either by satellite or on HF SSB or BPSK-31 as I chase National Parks on the Air activations.  Is NPOTA cool, or what!  This is a fun program and if you haven't tried it please take a moment to visit:  http://www.arrl.org/NPOTA

Current Long Term Plan:  E-M-E

Thank you for visiting this humble page.  Hope to connect with you again out in the ether.
