Thanks for stopping by my page!  Most likely we have had, or are in the process of completing, a QSO.  Thanks for taking the time to reach out to me!

 

I enjoy numerous aspects of amateur radio--SSB, D-Star, PSK, JT65/9 & WSPR.  Lately, I am intrigued by anything involving amateur radio and a Raspberry Pi.  Check out the Raspberry Pi WSPR transmitter below!  I also enjoy working the FM satellites with my handheld Yagi.  Recently I obtained my VE certification, and had the privilege of serving as a volunteer examiner for the first time at a local testing session.

 

I have grown a little tired of PSK31 & JT65, and have started to explore the more obscure digital modes.  I have really been enjoying working stations using Olivia and Contestia.  If you like the concept of PSK, but want a ragchew instead of the canned macros, give Olivia a shot.  Very rare to find an Olivia station that doesn't want a keyboard ragchew.  Olivia combines the style of PSK31 waterfall & keyboard operation with the weak signal decoding of JT65.  Contestia is an offshot variant of Olivia.  It doesn't quite decode weak signals as well as Olivia, but it has a faster WPM speed.  If you're a fast typist, you'll prefer Contestia.  If you hunt and peck with the keyboard than you'll probably get along great with Olivia.

 

I enjoy collecting QSL cards.  If we have had a contact, please send me your card, and I will send you my beautiful full color card (shown below).  No need to send postage or money.  

Exchanging cards with DX stations has also spawned a side hobby of collecting DX stamps.  If are outside the US and sending me a card, I would love it if you could include a few used stamps from your old mail.  If I happen to recieve some mail with a different US stamp aside from the usual Red, White and Blue, I save it and send it to the next ham I QSL with that also collects stamps.

 

There's a 450 ohm ladder line fed 102' doublet hidden in the trees behind the house to the right.

Raspberry Pi WSPR transmitter. Puts out 100mW and occasionally makes the trip across an ocean!

We live 1 mile from the ocean.  We have some of the best beaches in the world just a short bike ride from our house!
