Hello and thanks for checking my page.

I'm an Amateur Radio "generalist". I belong to a general interest club AND a contesting club. I have a QRP rig AND a 100 watt rig. I operate from home, from the club, from the camper, from the park, on holiday, wherever I can get away with it. I do EMCOMM. I rag chew. I contest. I work on repeaters. I help other hams. I operate SSB, CW, and digital. I'm still fairly new to CW, having lots of fun with it on the air in addition to SSB, RTTY, and the occasional PSK-31. I'll never know how you 30wpm+ people do it!

Please QRS, and I'll try to keep up!

(I really like my K8RA paddles and Vibroplex straight key)

I tried out a HF beam antenna for the first time. A used Mosley TA-33 tribander, a used HAM-2 rotor and 30' of used Rohn tower kept the investment to a minimum. It seemed to work OK so far. I'm used to wires and a vertical so there is some adjustment to my operating. I took the beam down for the winter 2015/2016 - I needed the tower for a windmill project at camp. 

I have recently begun operating a 2M FM/C4FM Yaesu repeater at my house. 147.360+107.2 The antenna is at 50' on the tower. It seems to get out OK for where I am. Maybe some day i'll find a better spot for it.

I recently finished putting together an elecraft KX3. I operate frequently while camping, using an icom 7000 , but this KX3 is a hot little radio! So if we're at camp, I may be on the air portable QRP or barefoot. Check my APRS icon ag2aa-8 to see where the truck is!

or if i am not in APRS RF range, try this:

My main shack radio is an Elecraft K3 from which I can select a 80M Carolina Windom, an 80M dipole, a 160M dipole, a tri-band mosley beam, or a 43' vertical. It gives me some antenna choices.

 

I'm located in the Rapids section of the Town of Clarence, New York State. the 50' tower near the house has 2M/220/440 as well as the feed point for my 80M Carolina windom. The 30' tower on the barn has the APRS Digi and a pully supporting the south end of the Windom. On the right are my PAR loops for 6M and 2M. They are on the tower now at 45', not on the garage floor.

I am a member of The Lancaster NY Amateur Radio Club, W2SO, a great general interest club in the Buffalo NY area. see www.w2so.org

I am active on HF Phone, CW, and RTTY as well as local FM.

I have been known to travel to other states and regions to help out with public service events, either planning or operating. Send me an email if you need help with an event!

I am very active on APRS. I maintain a wide1-1 digi at my home and a beacon in the various vehicles I drive.

I participate in various contests, ARRL, NY QSO Party, Field Day, and others. Below is a picture of my VHF rover in FN22 in January 2010 contest.

I always wanted to be a "Big Gun" station. Does this count? Taken at the Royal Navy Dockyard, Bermuda.
