Hello, I am glad you took time to visit this page. I have been interested in ham radio most of my life, but did not get licensed till 2008. I enjoy collecting and operating military radios. The portability, ruggedness, and the challenge of operating QRP are the best part. There is nothing like the look you get when you go to setup in a local park and pull out 25 pounds of painted green aluminum and hang an antenna. Most people are curious the rest want to call 911. I have a collection of the Clansman family of PRC radios that were used by the British military from the 1970 thru 1990. I also have several US issued gear and several German Military radios including the SEM-52A and SEM-52S. My primary commercial rig is the Elecraft KX3.. My primary Military HF Rig is the PRC-47. I also enjoy D-Star, Fusion, DMR, P-25 and IDAS and look forward to the growth of Amateur digital radio.
Most recently I have been using my QRP rig to participate in the Parks on the Air WWFF POTA and Summits on the Air SOTA, mainly on 20 & 40 meters. I have also been devoting my time to participation in a non-profit organization called the Education Alliance for Amateur Radio (EAAR) our call sign is KE3AAR. The purpose of our groups is to provide support to local ham clubs and assist with the use of amateur radio as a vehicle for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education for youth.
I am a Member of the Pottstown Area Amateur Radio Club (http://www.paarc.net) , The Philadelphia Digital Radio Club K3PDR (https://www.k3pdr.org/) and the East Penn Amateur Radio Club W3LP (https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/104359398457292973456/104359398457292973456). I operate an Echolink node in the Pennsburg, PA area KB3SBC-L on 146.565 PL 151.4 node #412705 as well as a DSTAR Hotspot on 441.050 DV (KB3SBC B) usually connected to reflector 01C (currently offline).
Finally if you have followed Ed (WA3WSJ) and my adventures during national parks on the air, you might want to read about them in the new book “My Year Down the Rabbit Hole: National Parks on the Air By Edward Breneiser”
*All profits go to the non-profit Education Alliance for Amature Radio.
