Hi, and thanks for dropping by.

I go by Mike.

I was originally interested in Amateur Radio as a kid, and was working on my code. Then, teenage distractions took over, and I never acquired my license. Life got busy.

I am extremely fortunate to have been able to retire from a fantastic career in Air Pollution Control.

After retirement, I re-kindled my interest in Amateur Radio.

I received my Technician ticket in April, 2014 - with the call sign KD0ZYI. I returned the next month and passed my General. I studied up, and passed my Extra in January, 2015. I obtained my current call AD0WB in February, 2015.

I am a member of the ARRL, The Colorado QRP Club, The Denver Radio Club, and The Parker Radio Association.

I have been working on learning CW. Finding it much easier to send than copy… I know, practice, practice… smiley  Sooner or later, I’ll work up enough courage to subject someone to my code on the air…

Currently in the shack I have a Kenwood TS-590S HF rig, with a Kent Twin Paddle Key. For VHF/UHF I’m running an Icom ID-5100A in the shack, and a Kenwood TM-V71A in the truck. I've got a few HT's; an Icom ID-31A, Yaesu FT-60R, an MD-390, and of course, a couple of disposable Baofengs...

For antennas, I am running an 80 Meter Doublet, and a Diamond X200A at the QTH, and run a Larsen 2/70C on the truck. I recently picked up a Butternut HF9V and hope to have it on the air soon. 

I took the plunge into Linux and a Raspberry Pi. I put together a DV Mega project for a personal D-Star hotspot.

My latest addiction is QRP/Portable ops: I picked up an Elecraft KX2, and have been playing with lightweight antennas. I've now got this rig set up with a small laptop, and configured for digital modes as well. Might see you on PSK or JT-65, or ???. This is a blast!

I probably have too many hobbies - Fishing, Boating, Radio Control, RVing, Four Wheeling - and no where near enough time. You get the picture.
