Hello there! ...I'm Mike Zadoroznyj and I live in Saddle Brook,NJ. My friends call me Zike (pronounced Zi - Key). I won't even try to explain how to pronounce my surname!

I am an Air Force Veteran and currently VP of Product at a financial software firm in Morris County, NJ. I once enjoyed flying around in single engine Cessna aircraft, but have been grounded on a medical technicality. For now my flying is limited to the Flight Simulators. It keeps my skills honed. 

Since I'm not flying anymore, I've started getting back into my other hobbies primarily Ham Radio,  B&W photography, bicycling, kayaking, skydiving and motorcycling.  I have no shortage things to do! Ha!

I finally made Extra! Looking forward to exploring the new privileges.

Equipment

Radios: Icom IC-7300 - Kenwood TS-480SAT - Kenwood TS140S - ICOM IC-2730
Antenna 1: Cushcraft MA-5VA with 6m option
Antenna 2: G5RV Junior
Antenna 3: End Fed 53' wire with 9:1 matchbox
Antenna 4: 40m homebrew dipole up 30' (when the wind decides to leave it there)
Software: Ham Radio Deluxe version 6.4.0.638
 

Recently built a 40M QRP SSB XCVR from a kit.  The BITX40 is a nifty little radio with DDS from India for $59 (including shipping).  Seems like it will be great for experimenting. Beautifully laid out board! Since this kit utilizes an Arduino board for its DDS, it will be great to see how I can modify the code using the Arduino IDE. This is like a nice merge of my two loves - radio and programming.

Of course some other home brew stuff that I have built (some of it even works!).

73 and hope to connect with you soon!

Mike
