Thank you for checking out my QRZ page. A little about myself. I took my test for the technician license in January 17,2015 which was on my birthday and on January 21, 2015 I got my license and have not looked back.

I love this hobby so many things to explore. 

                

I'm running a KENWOOD TM-215A HT with a DAIWA 30 WATT LINEAR AMPLIFIER attached to it and that is mounted to a home brew J-pole antenna which is attached to my air vent pipe. I constructed that out of copper pipe and some fittings. (Copied a design i saw on the internet)., My first shot at a home brew antenna and after doing some SWR readings it was working perfect 1:1 SWR so i was very pleased with that project.

I also run an ECHOLINK NODE W2JLD-L - #449388-147.555MHZ /PL 114.8 which consist of a Wouxon KG-UV899 Radio and that on the lowest wattage setting and Cables linked to a Acer Laptop 2.0 MHz. Its a nice little setup to get me  around town.                                                           

My hobbies are Photography, I am the official CLEVELAND BROWNS Photographer here in Rochester for the CLEVELAND BROWNS BACKERS CLUB. I traveled the NASCAR circuit from 1999-2004 (WWW.DERYCKEMOTORSPORTS.COM) as an independent photographer crossing all states on the east coast as well as a few states on the west coast., I have a bachelors degree in computer science and networking, I have been doing taxes for over30 years. I really enjoy spending quality time with my 8 yr old son and I built him his own website to see his progression thru life.

Amateur radio has so much to offer for everyone and ive realized that with so much out there, one can never be bored. Looking forward to getting my general by 2017.

This hobby has really opened alot of new windows where before they were closed.

I really enjoy nets alot and now I am NET Manager for The World Friendship Net/,https://www.facebook.com/World-Friendship-Net-amateur-radio-ham-operators-987888197954392/, *WORLD* conference server, node #479886 on EcholinkNode 9251 on IRLP, part of the.

*******PLEASE JOIN THE "WORLD RADIO NETWORK" and the "WORLD FRIENDSHIP NET" as we celebrate WORLD AMATEUR RADIO DAY ON APRIL 18,2016. Where we plan on celebrating the anniversary of the INTERNAL AMATEUR RADIO UNION which was formed in 1925...to find more info on WARD, you can find them on the web at www.iaru.org

Every April 18, radio amateurs worldwide take to the airwaves in celebration of World Amateur Radio Day. It was on that day in 1925 that the International Amateur Radio Union was formed in Paris.

Amateur Radio experimenters were the first to discover that the short wave spectrum — far from being a wasteland — could support worldwide propagation. In the rush to use these shorter wavelengths, Amateur Radio was “in grave danger of being pushed aside,” the IARU’s history has noted. Amateur Radio pioneers met in Paris in 1925 and created the IARU to support Amateur Radio worldwide.

The WORLD RADIO NETWORK will be doing a special event starting at 12 noon east ' 9am pst, on the *WORLD* conference server, node #479886 on EcholinkNode 9251 on IRLP, part of the That net is on Monday, April 18th 2016. We will have the USS MISSOURI CONNECTING.

The USS Missouri BB-63 is handled by James W8JVF at Fort Shafter here in Honolulu. He installed the new repeater there and built the EchoLink node for that repeater. James will be connecting the USS Missouri through my WH6ECP-L node, which is connected to the Starlink System full-time.

The World Amateur Radio Day special event will be held on the WORLD RADIO NETWORK AND THE WORLD FRIENDSHIP NET, STARTS AT 9AM PST/12NOON EST AND WILL CONTINUE TILL 7PM PST/10PM EST. With  5 different net controls working 2 hour shifts throughout the day. It'll be 10 Hour Net.......The longest net ever to have been produced on echolink, I would like to thank: W2JLD - JOHNWH6DWF - TODD, VO1UKZ - DARRYLL - N0STY - NASTY - KM4OOC - MIKE for their support and dedication for this event....Great job to everyone whom participated.  We will be doing this again in 2017...So stay tuned for further details.
