I am located in Niagara County Grid FN03QE near Lake Ontario and Niagara Falls. My current interests in amateur radio include HF digital modes. I spend most of my time on 30 and 40 meters. I also operate mobile and portable on VHF and UHF, mostly 144 and 222 MHz. My 224.360 MHz repeater has been on the air for almost 20 years now but recently I have been more active on D-Star, Fusion and DMR.   The 220 repeater is temporarily operating on low power but will return to high power once I relocate the repeater antenna.
 
On HF I operate just about every mode except ssb.  Although most of my operating is on cw I do work just about every digital mode including JT9 (probably my favorite), JT65, Olivia, FeldHell,  WSPR and once in a while PSK31 (my least favorite digital mode). 
 
Except when driven indoors in the winter months by the Western NY snow and cold I spend much of my time bicycling on the Erie Canal towpath , the Seaway Trail along the Lake Ontario shoreline and along the Niagara River between Lewiston and Youngstown, NY and always have my Yaesu FT1-D, MD-380 or my Icom ID-51 with me.
 
I am a member of the following: American Radio Relay League, Penn-Ohio DX Society 070 Club (1031), European PSK Club (4969), 30 Meter Digital Group (1779), Digital Modes Club (1689), Feld-Hell Club (1187), North American QRP CW Club (167), FISTS CW Club (7874), the SKCC (1459) and the Toronto FM Communications Society.
 
I became interested in radio when I was 10 years old. I helped my father build a shortwave receiver at our kitchen table one winter and I never have been far from a shortwave radio since that time. I learned to copy morse code by listening to NSS and other maritime stations and was not really interested in ham radio at that time. . I just had to find out what they were saying. I had my General license by 12 and spent the next few years on 6 meter and 75 meter AM and 80 meter cw. I recall rushing home from school every day to get on 3600 kHz cw to talk with a roundtable of friends including Gary - WB2CQG, Jeff – VE3FJQ, Mike – VE3GG, Frank – VE3OD and Al – VE3AFW. I have been active on the air ever since that time, even while in school I managed to always have some kind of ham radio gear nearby. I had my Heathkit Two’er on 2m AM and operated from the college radio station while going to school in Massachusetts.
 
Today I share my hamshack with my XYL, N2LEW. If you see the photo on this page you will notice that I have to keep things very neat but the real hamshack is the mess of boxes, test equipment, parts of radios and wires everywhere that you cannot see behind the camera.
