Thanks for looking me up.

     I'm a photographer/writer/web designer living in Ojai, California. Ojai ( O-hi) is a two-hour drive north of Los Angeles, next to Ventura. Santa Barbara is an hour north of here. We live fifteen miles inland from the Pacific, backed up against the Los Padres National Forest.

     I gained my Extra class license in December of 2011. My XYL Jade (KI6VFQ) is a general-class licensee. We both belong to the Ojai Valley Amateur Radio Club. We participate in local CERT and ham radio excercises. We are both card-carrying RACES (ACS) members. Jade is also a volunteer examiner.

     Our radio shack equipment consists of a desktop and a laptop, both  running Windows7.  We use two Yaesu FT-60 handhelds, and a Yaesu FT2900r for two meters. We use a Kenwood TS-480sat for the lower bands, driving a 5/8-wave ground plane for 6 meters, and a longwire and two inverted-V dipoles for 40 and 20 meters.  The longwire shoots east-west, the dipoles go north-south.  Most of the equipment is powered by solar panels on the roof except for the beer cooler. I'm working on that.

     I graduated from the Telecommunications school of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio in 1970. My father was in the Signal Corps, and as a child I was fascinated to watch him copy Morse. You might say that's where I first caught the bug.  My own experience with radio came as a newscaster at several broadcast stations in the midwest.  I moved to California in 1973, and now we wouldn't live anywhere else.  I found a job as a burglar alarm technician in Oakland and San Francisco.  I took community college classes in data processing,  and later moved to Sunnyvale where I was employed as a trouble desk tech, a diagnostic programmer, and field service engineer for three computer manufacturers. In my last (real) job, I worked for twenty years as a data networking technician at the GTE/Verizon headquarters in Thousand Oaks. That's were I met my wife.

     My technical writing career began in 1985 with an article in Satellite Times magazine, "The Bird's-Eye View from Space".  A page on my website displays images collected from polar orbiting weather satellites and a tutorial for anyone interested.   ( http://www.dalyroad.com/wxsat.htm)

      In 2001, I authored "WiFi Home Networking", a book published by the technical division of McGraw-Hill.

     I started my own home-based business in 2001 (Daly Road Graphics) after I was laid off.  I am presently retired, but busy, busy, busy with our club's latest project:  a MESH network for the emergency services in our valley.
