I currently hold a Commercial FCC (GROL), and GMRS license. I have worked on 2 way radios (Commercial Land mobile, Marine HF and VHF, Ham and CB) for over 20 years. And worked as a Radio Tech for the Florida Highway patrol, Troop D, Orlando, Fla for almost 5 years. Currently, I work for Mears Transportation in Orlando, Fla as a Radio Tech repairing radios, and mobile data terminals. Mears has somewhere between 1200 to 1500 vehicles on the road, everything from Taxi to town-cars, from shuttle vans to motor-coaches.I also work part time for TRS wireless in Orlando, Fl as a radio tech.
I operate all bands from 160 meters through 1.2 GHz (all modes except 220 MHz,902 Mhz and 1.2 GHz which is FM only). I operate most digital modes. I am working on ATV transmitters for 902 MHz and 2.4 GHz. I enjoy listening from DC to light. I am involved with US Army MARS, ARES, RACES, Skywarn, and SWLing (from ELF to 3GHz). I have a repeater on the air in Springfield, MO and i am working on a second machine for Fla.
Get active in Ham radio, try a new mode today!
Only you can help cure QRM! Help clean up Ham radio, report illegal operators to the FCC(don't confront them on the air).
Software defined radios, are they a fad or a peek into the future of Radio?
Currently, I am operating mobile on 10 meters most of the time 28.400 MHz(5:00am EST till 6:30pm EST and 3pm till 4:30pm EST). I have a 10-10 number (74478).
Since Sep. 05 till
Have you worked 10 meters lately??
Update (July 25, 08)since this previous post: i have only had 15 days since july 5, 06, that i have not had a contact with someone outside the local area. 10 meters is still alive and well.
Currently (Feb 14, 09) Only42 days of no dx. Keep tuning those antennas, The band is still active.
(9-4-13) yes i am still on 10 and have had a blast, but have not updated my site since the up side of the solar cycle.
Also there is a new Net in Town. St. Cloud, Fl onThursday nights at 7:30pm on 28.480 MHz. Please check into the net.

Here is something that you can get in on the pioneering side of this technology. we are looking to build a "High Speed Multi Media" network using wireless routers on the 12 cm and 6 cm ham bands. join the group and follow the action. get a router and antenna and join the fun of experimentation of new/newer technologies in ham radio.
