I was first introduced to amatuer radio in 1979 by N1LC (then K1BOP) who was my middle school science teacher and advisor to a group I belonged to that produced "Teen Talk", an hour long show on a local AM radio station.  I was fascinated by radio but, like many teenagers, had too many things pulling me in different directions to actually take the next step.

I became an EMT in 1981 and a paramedic in 1986 but still remained fascinated by radios and communications. I spent much of my career being directly or indirectly involved with radio communications for emergency services, working for 15 years in the communications center and the rest of the time being very involved in the purchase, maintenance, programming and design of radio systems.

It wasn't until June of 2016 that I finally tested for my Technician license and then my General later that July. I plan on sitting for the Extra exam in late 2017 now that I am finished with my Masters Degree.

I have been very interested in digital modes and spend much of my time on either PSK31or JT65 mostly around 20, 30, and 40 meters. I dabble in CW as I (slowly) learn Morse and can ocassionally be found on local VHF, DMR, and D-Star repeaters.

I recently joined the Port City Amateur Radio Club and the Yankee Clipper Contest Club.

My ham radio bucket list for 2017:

  • Figure out how to get PSK31 to work reliably on my IC-7300 using a Mac
  • Learn more about contesting
  • Become conversational in CW
  • Experiment with QRP and field ops
  • Experiment with satellite ops
  • Get a better antenna
  • Get a QSO with Hawaii to finish my WAS

I currently have in my shack (either bought or borrowed):

  • Elecraft KX2
  • Icom IC-7300
  • Kenwood TN-D74
  • TYT MD2017
  • 72' end fed
  • 41' end fed 
  • Buddipole
  • Packtenna Mini

QSL Information: Every QSO is uploaded to LoTW within 24 hours. QSL cards are mailed every week or so.
