 I am currently enjoying many aspects of this hobby. I was active on ham sats for many years until the last of the Molniya orbit birds was lost. I am active in our local ARES group and also volunteer throughout the year for community events like marathons, bike races, etc. I have been inspired by a friend to become a top notch QRQ CW op and am spending as much time as possible building speed and accuracy on that mode, while actively chasing DXCC on all other modes. I am active on 6-160Meters on CW, SSB, PSK31, and RTTY currently. I have recently also been working on achieving EME contacts with JT65B.

Here's 'the shack'!

I also am currently the Technical Chair for the Northern Colorado Amateur Radio Club.  Here I am working on aiming a 5Ghz dish that links our repeater sites. 

Here's another repeater site I maintain.  This is the city of Fort Collins, about 15 miles north of my QTH.  This is from one of our repeater towers located on Horsetooth mountain with Horsetooth reservoir below:

The above picture was taken from this tower:
