Ham Member Lookups: 2869

 

BSEE, MEng Sci from Penn State University, and a career in industrial automation/robotics.

Currently working on distributed inverters and controls for Photovoltaic Solar Energy.

Previously developed flight controls for unmanned air vehicles. Prior to that, worked on advanced, high efficiency, flexible thin-film, light weight Photovoltaics at a Silicon Valley "startup", after 28 years in the semiconductor industry.

Earned my Extra Class ticket in November 2012, but I've been a ham since 1974.

Currently active on 160, 80, 60, 40, 20, 15, 10, 6, 2, and 1.25 m, 70cm, and 23cm, and 12.5 cm. Use packet/APRS on VHF as well as PACTOR and PSK31 on HF.

Have always enjoyed CW. Was once 25 WPM, but now in the 15 wpm range ! Eager to re-establish proficiency.

Interested in Satellite and EME.

I am a Volunteer Examiner with ARRL and W5YI VECs.

Am a Private Pilot, and CAP member ( CPT, inactive).

Harley rider

Homebrewer, with dreams of starting my own microbrewery. Master Brewer's certificate from UC Davis (thanks Charley Bamforth; "Pope of Foam", and Michael Lewis!)

Hold Dipl.Brew from the prestigious Institute of Brewers and Distillers in London.

ex WA3YKP - first licensed in the early 70's.

first rig; Heathkit DX-40 with a wicked "chirp"! Also owned and employed the giant, Heathkit Apache. Main workhorse in those days was the venerable Heathkit HW-101. Built it, still have it, and may get it back on the air one day soon. First "Elmer": Frank Aiello, K3TRM. I just discovered that he passed away in '96, and his son now has his old call and is working on a memorial page for him! What a great idea! Have my old friend WA3VWE, Kurt, to thank not only for my interest in amateur radio, but also opening up the gateway to a fabulous career in technology.

Operate a VHF packet BBS on 144.37, using the Raspberry Pi, TNCpi, and BPQ. It also has a PACTOR port and acts as an DTN and NTSD relay station as well as a WinLink gateway.

Experimenting with mesh nodes (Broadband-Hamnet) on 2.4 GigaHertz. Trying to encourage development of a Sacramento Valley mesh net.
