Ham Member Lookups: 1397

 

Before my bio, I prefer QSL through eQSL.cc and LOTW, secondarily, cards can be sent direct.  I will be getting my ARRL membership back here shortly, but have never gone through the bureau for anything, so am unfamiliar with the process.  Bio follows now:

I entered the Ham community in 2002 by the guiding hand of one of my electronics teachers in college. After moving to Georgia and getting involved in the club there, I advanced to my General Class ticket in 2006 before the FCC removed the morse requirement (thankfully).  I achieved my Extra Class license in 2008.

I moved back to Grand Forks, ND in 2010, though only put up an antenna in May 2015.  I am again a member of the Forx Amateur Radio Club (WA0JXT, N0GF, WX0ND).  I am hoping to get involved with ARES and SKYWARN again, now that I would feel safe chasing storms (too many trees in south GA!).

I am working on becoming a CW operator.  I started this in GA, but never really took to it.  I like the elegance and speed that contacts can be worked during an event or contest.  I am working through K7QO's training program (fantastic BTW), I hope this helps develop the speed as well.  I currently have a Nye Viking Speed-X straight key, and rescued a Telegraph Apparatus Co. bug that was in a fire (cleaned up alright).  I am a member of the Straight Key Century Club (SKCC #4575). 

I love a good fox-hunt. Working on putting together some good mobile hunting equipment (non-doppler, kinda cheating for competition, but good for emergency).

As a side note, I am exclusively using linux for my ham station computer.  My current distro is Arch with XFCE.  So far I have found the only limitation to be configuring using multiple sound cards to interface with the equipment.  My logging app is CQRLOG.  It has interfacing with eQSL, LOTW, hamlib(radio comms), rotor control, cw automation, fldigi, and RBN.  It also has bandmapping based on clusters, greyline map, and a program called xplanet.  Works really well.

I am currently working on getting FreeDV working.

See you on the waves, 73.
