Ham radio is my favorite hobby. I got my first license when I was about 14 years old due to my father because he was a radio and electronics enthusiast. I enjoy mobile operating, communicating using PSK, RTTY and JT65. I also enjoy "casual contesting". Join me on 3.973.00 MHz as I'm net control of the Breakfast Club net on Thursdays at 1200 UTC and Saturdays at 1100 UTC.

My favorite radio so far is the Icom 7300. I started working with it early in 2016. I’m developing a website mainly around the Icom 7300 for the time being. SDR will play a significant role in Amateur Radio in the future and I am betting the Icom 7300 will be very popular, which it is turning out to be.


Please visit my YouTube channel. I have some videos on the Icom 7300.

I enjoy turning the knobs and adjusting various aspects of a radio, but seeing a waterfall and spectrum scope makes radio come alive for me. I’m a visual person and when I see the signals and the interference around it I understand radio better. I understand filtering better too and can apply it more effectively than doing it by ear or blindly if you will. Blindly tuning up and down a band in a contest is a way of the past for me. I can jump to 10 Meters and see if it’s open. I don’t have to tune around to find out. With a scope/waterfall I can see strong stations, weak stations and noise all around the frequency I’m on. It’s fantastic!

Thanks for visiting. I hope you find useful information and things that spark your interest. Best wishes, 73 and good DX. – Rich, K0PIR
