In this picture, I am almost done installing all the panels for my solar power project. Shown are 38 105 watt panels. This system is large enough to power the entire house - with standard appliances. It is an intertie system, and backfeeds PG&E during mid day. 

I like to experiment with electronic devices. One of my favorite projects was designing, bulding and programming a PIC microcontroller as part of a rocket telemetry device. An accelerometer sent a voltage to an analog to digital converter, which was read by the microcontroller. This result was sent to a modem chip, and then out a mini transmitter. The acceleration data was sent digitally (at almost 100 times per second) to a ground based computer. I learned a heck of a lot about digital electronics with this project!

Another fun project was developing a web controled radio which people can control, listen, and view on the internet. This project made me learn a lot about web design, server side includes, and CGI. Although my web radio is not currently set up, you can see more about how I got this to work at: http://www.radiohound.com/how.htm .

I recently finished setting up a D-STAR repeater that covers the Gilroy and surrounding area. For more on the repeater, see http://www.rptr.info 

I have a lot of learning to do, but getting my amateur radio licence was what started all of my experimenting! What a great hobby!
