I upload logs to eQSL, LoTw, HRDlog, ClubLog, HamQTH and here of course.  I like for everyone to get credit for helping me since they went through the effort.

Radio

Running a Kenwood TS940S-AT with Piexx digital board.  Using a usb sound card and just audio cables for digital. 

Antenna is Half Wave Dipole about 6ft off the ground.  Actually mounted against my back wood fence.

 Hobbies

1. Electronics - New to the RF scene but I've worked on projects in digital and analog.  From past jobs I've worked on lasers, designed and built automated test equipment, CVD equipment, welders, high vacuum chambers and pumps, PID controllers, and a host of other manufacturing equipment. 

2. Computers - I've worked on PC since the original IBM PCs and XTs.  I did system admin work for 18 years which includes HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, Linux, OS/2, and Windows. 

3. Programming - from previous jobs and curiousity I've programmed in Basic, assembly, C, C++, C#, Pascal, Fortran, Java, and shell programming.  I also started out making we pages when all you had was ftp and a text editor.   Now I use PHP, CSS, HTML, Java, JavaScript, and currently using Joomla for a lot of work.

4. Guns - I don't have a large collection of guns.  I love long range shooting.  Except I can't afford the guns I'd like to have. 

5. Amateur radio - I've been interested for many years.  Just seems like something always came up.  But now I'm curious and want to try as many modes as I can to see which one/s I want to stay with the most.

Current Projects

  I'm working on my own personal web site.  I hope to have the basic part of it up and running soon.

  I'm working a lot lately on Arduino boards and various clone versions.  For the price of the tiny boards I don't have to worry about breadboarding single micros with all the support circuitry.

One of my projects in the RF realm is using a SWR meter board and interfacing it to an Arduino.  I'm starting with the one from KitsAndParts.com.  It provides the raw forward and reverse analog readings out.  I can then feed it to the ADC input of the Arduino.  Since it's meant for current readings I may need a resistor to covert it to a voltage.  I've assemble the board but waiting on parts add the RF adapters and dummy load.

My Kenwood TS940S-AT with Piexx board I added.

Makes logging easier since it keeps track of everything.

Just using a USB audio adapter and a couple of 3.5mm audio cables and 2 3.5mm female to RCA male adapters to do digital. 40M Half Dipole
