I log all QSOs with LOTW, eQSL and ClubLog.  I reply 100% to all direct and bureau QSL cards.

I enjoy working SSB and the JT digital modes.  I'm working on my CW skills.  SKCC #17025

I got my Novice license in 1967, as WN3GVE, when I was in high school.  The next year I started university and let my license expire because I was too busy with schoolwork. Forty-eight years later, in November 2015, I was licensed as AC2RL.  It has been many years since I was first licensed, but I'm still really a new ham. As a Novice, my only experience was CW on 80 and 40 meters. 

I worked for thirty-nine years as an embedded software developer for Eastman Kodak and Carestream Health.  I retired in 2014.

I enjoy photography and woodworking. I mentor a FIRST Robotics high school team. I am an active member of the Rochester Makerspace.

Photos show my old rig, an Icom-735.  My rig is now a Kenwood TS-590S. New photos coming soon.

I run a Kenwood TS-590S transciever through an MFJ-993B automatic tuner out through a basement window to a lopsided 80m horizontal loop, a six-band NA4RR hex beam, and a 10m wire j-pole.

I use a Nooelec SDR dongle and "Ham It Up" upconverter with HDSDR software to get a wide band waterfall view of the band that I'm working.

I use a Baofeng UV-5R portable with a homebrew 2m ground plane antenna and Ramsey 30W amp to check into the local 2m Roc City Net.

My friend Diana drew my QSL card designs.
