APRS

I have a weather station on APRS. This link will load a webpage with the current weather and weather history at and around my location. My APRS station consists of an Alinco DR-135 with an Argent Data Systems T3-135 TNC. I use aprx on a Raspberry Pi, Weather Display software under Windows 10, and a Davis Vantage Vue wireless weather station to send weather reports to fellow hams, the National Weather Service, and the world.

You can get an idea about 2 meter VHF propagation at my location by looking here. The page reports on what my APRS station is receiving on 144.39 MHz with an Arrow Antenna J-Pole mounted in my attic. It also shows what APRS stations are receiving my 5 watt beacon. When I am receiving stations over 100km in distance, it usually signifies a tropospheric opening in the Central NJ area.

Station

My HF station consists of a Ten Tec Orion II, a Ten Tec Eagle, a Kenwood TS-2000, an MFJ-998 Intellituner, and wire antennas. For 80-10 I use an Alpha Delta DX-CC. This is a physically short antenna on 80m, but it uses coils to make up the length and performs well. It consists of three wires to form a fan dipole and I QSLd my first 100 countries on 100 watts. I also have the help of an Ameritron AL-811H when I need it. A 130' inverted L with four radials makes 160m possible. There's a small antenna farm in the attic as well, covering 50 - 927 MHz.

It is fun to listen as well as transmit. I have a Drake R8B in the shack, along with a Microtelecom Perseus SDR. The Perseus is often online for others to enjoy when I am not otherwise using the antennas. I also have several scanners for monitoring VHF and UHF activity in the area.

Clubs/Awards

I am a member of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), 3905 Century Club, North American Shortwave Association (NASWA), and the Longwave Club of America (LWCA). I hold DXCC, WAS, and Triple Play certificates from the ARRL as well as a NASWA DX Centurion certificate for QSLing 100 shortwave broadcast countries. My verified DXCC entity count is currently 228.

Amateur Publications

From 2008 - 2016, my column, "RF Bits", as well as features and reviews graced the pages of Popular Communications, CQ+ and CQ.  I covered various aspects of computing and digital technology as they relate to the radio hobby.  At the beginning of 2017 I decided that I would focus any further publishing efforts on my blog.

On Air Contacts

You can reach me via my local Allstar hotspot, node 29577.  I can be also found on VHF simplex as well as D-Star and DMR.  I enjoy chasing DX on HF and can often be found operating during a contest or in the pileups.

Blog

My blog is a place where I sometimes share thoughts on not only radio, but technology, travel, finance, and politics.  It can be found at http://k2dls.net.
