I'm an RF engineer with Best Access Solutions in Indianapolis, IN, where I provide RF engineering and antenna design support for both the advanced engineering and new product development groups.

Most of my operating is on HF.  I enjoy digital modes (primarily PSK and JT65), contesting, and working DX.  From the QTH, I use a TS-570D and Rigblaster Plus sound card interface into an MFJ-949E to feed whatever temporary antenna I have connected at the time (right now a 20m vertical made of Buddipole components).  My home's gutering was my previous antenna, configued with a coax feed at the bottom of one of the downspouts, going up 20', across in a N-S direction 50', and back down 20' in an inverted U.  Around 10 radials of varying lengths attached to the coax shield rounded out the antenna.  As much of a compromise antenna as it was (due to neighborhood CC&R's), I've worked the Oman, Kuwait, and Japan all barefoot with this antenna.  

I also like to operate portable and mobile HF using an FT-857D with an LDG AT-100ProII feeding either an Opek HVT-400B on the car or an EARCHI end-fed halfwave or Buddipole while portable.

I don't do much on the higher bands, but I have been playing with DMR and D-STAR lately.  When I'm on, I can generally be found on Reflector 30C on D-STAR or on Indiana Statewide on the Hoosier DMR network.  I've also begun exploring the satellites, using an Arrow Antenna and a Kenwood TH-D72.

Other than ham radio, I also enjoy model railroading, railfanning, and shortwave broadcast/utility listening.  You can check out my railroad photography on my flickr page.  If you need Indiana for a contact or want to ragchew about trains sometime, give me a shout!

QSL Information

I try to upload my logs to LoTW and ClubLog at least once every couple of weeks. Paper QSL's are always welcome either via bureau or direct.  Sending direct with SASE will get a card out in the mail to you quicker than without.

I do upload logs to QRZ, but on a more infrequent basis.
