The photo at top of page is from Lake James in Burke County, west of Morganton, North Carolina. About 7 miles from my QTH. It was taken by me in Fall of Oct 2009. The fall is the most beautiful time in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mtns.

The Amateur's Code

The Radio Amateur is

CONSIDERATE...never knowingly operates in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.

LOYAL...offers loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local clubs, and the American Radio Relay League, through which Amateur Radio in the United States is represented nationally and internationally.

PROGRESSIVE...with knowledge abreast of science, a well-built and efficient station and operation above reproach.

FRIENDLY...slow and patient operating when requested; friendly advice and counsel to the beginner; kindly assistance, cooperation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur spirit.

BALANCED...radio is an avocation, never interfering with duties owed to family, job, school or community.

PATRIOTIC...station and skill always ready for service to country and community.

--The original Amateur's Code was written by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA, in 1928--

In 2001, I created and still maintain 6 Meter Sked, a 6 Meter DX group on Yahoo! Groups (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/6meter/).

My home station consists of

  • Kenwood TS-520 (Vintage 1972 used for all HF Digital and Voice)
  • Icom ID-880H (D-Star)
  • Kenwood TM-D700a (D-Star Wide Area Hot Spot on 147.440 Simplex)
  • Motorola Maxtrac (6 Meters)
  • RIGblaster pro
  • SignaLink USB
  • Hustler 6-BTV (Ground Mount Vertical)
  • HamStick Dipole (40 Meters)
  • Cushcraft AR-10 (10 Meters)
  • Cushcraft AR6 (6Meters)
  • Comet GP-1 (D-Star Hot Spot)
  • Raspberry Pi Model 2b+ and 3
  • DVRPT V1 (GMSK Modem for D-Star)
  • AOR ARD9000 MK2 (Digital Voice Interface)


My love in ham radio is rag chewing either via digital or HF voice. But my main love is digital anything. Whether it is D-Star, HF Soundcard modes like PSK31, Olivia, JT65a, etc.., HF digital voice with FreeDV and/or the ARD9000 MK2 (Is anyone using this mode anymore??), or VHF/UHF Packet Radio, I love modes that allow you to use a computer interfaced to your radio to make contacts. One other love of mine is 6 Meter Dxing. It is a thrill when the "Magic Band" opens and stations from around the world start coming in.

I hope to catch you on the air again and if we have not chatted yet I hope to talk to you soon. 73 and Good DX.

I QSL direct only.  I do not use a bureau, LoTW, or eQSL.  I 100% reply to all cards I receive via DIRECT MAIL (USPS) .
