Hello! I enjoy a lot of different aspects of the amateur radio hobby. I am big into VHF/UHF, HF, as well as digtial modes, APRS including high altitude balloon launches, repeaters & maintaining them. Also a big fan of the IRLP network. The Stensgar Mountain repeater is part of the KBARA repeater group ( www.kbara.org ). I am currently the President of the Washington Digital Radio Enthusiasts ( WA7DRE - www.wa7dre.org ) club which supports the digital repeaters and digital modes.
If we have worked each other,I suggest confirming QSLs via LoTW, eQSL or direct! I also use the qrz.com logbook. If you have any questions, or want to get a hold of me, use the address on QRZ for email. Thanks!

Here is a few of my favorite balloon shots. These were taken from approx. 95,000ft - 98,000 ft. above sea level:
Columbia River, Central Washington
Those are two jets, one going away from us, and one coming towards us. Notice how much higher we fly than the jet airplanes!
Looking down on Washington State, as the balloon pops.
One of my other hobbies (it was like 21 degrees outside on this day)
