My Name is Justin and my qth is Omaha, Nebraska
Please QSL by eQSL.cc, LOTW, and/or via Mail. I actually like getting the QSL cards.
I received my first first license as a “no code” tech (N0WKH) in 1993. I have always had an interest in electronics and building things since I was young. Always trying to think of ways to improve a process or build something to see if there was a better interface to the people that use it. Later, I graduated from the University of Nebraska as a Industrial Engineer deeply intrigued with systems and processes. After school, I worked at UPS in the Engineering dept and had a lot of experiences with many aspects of the package delivery business.
My interest in ham radio began while listening to our local emergency radios on a scanner my Dad gave me for Christmas. Of course today I use a cell phone every day, but am intrigued by the fact that in an emergency situation, amateur radio operators dispatched into the field can be the only source of communication. I take part in APRS, AREDN (Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network) exercises with my local club.
My other passion and hobby is motorcycling and track day events. More to come on that.
This is a Kenwood SAT480 Rig that I put together recently. This radio is in a pelican case and is very mobile. I like to bring this radio and visit with friends and share the hobby with them. Thank you to Kevin, KA0VNY, for helping me first get on the air.
Another project I just got done with was to fit a ic-7300 into a shallow rack box.
The front panel supplied be www.novexcomm.com was custom cut to provide room for the radio, speaker, 2usb ports, a volt/amp meter, Andersen Power Poles, and a USB power ports. On the inside, the all the equipment is mouunted on a tray.
Rear angle view. On the 1U blank, I mounted a work light. I found that this is where most of the light you need when setting up and taken down the radio. Also there is the antenna. It is setup to run 110 or 12V by use of the toggle switch.
All buttoned up and ready to go! There is no reason to leave this behind. It is so easy to carry and take with me to the park or NPOTA site.
This is another radio I use w/ HRD
