I am one of a few NCO's for the North Central Amateur Radio Service net. I operate for NORCARS on Thursdays and fill in from time to time for some of the other guys. Monday thru Friday, 8 Am eastern time, and again at 5 Pm eastern on 7.197.0 or 7.197.5, if band is in use we will be up or down depending on band usage. 

I operate on 160 thru 70cm, and all modes.    

The following are home made antennas used on hf, 200' doublet, 40m coaxial dipole, 20m coaxial dipole, 40 dipole, 17m dipole, 60m coaxial dipole, 10m dipole. The following are manufactured hf, 6 band vertical dipole with modifications done by me to improve it. The following are vhf/uhf weak signal antennas, M2 222 18 element beam, 21 element m2 432mhz beam, 13B2 cushcraft 13 element 144 mhz beam, Directive systems 6 meter 6 element beam at 40 feet. Along with a CX333 triband 2,440,223 vertical, 900mhz-1.2ghz vertical. I operate on 160-70cm, am beginning to develop a 900 mhz station, and looking into 1296mhz. I use SDR receivers for various things here, including digital modes, live monitoring of aircraft overhead up to 250 miles away, and shortwave listening. I also have a beverage antenna which is used for receiving weak signals, and for testing. The antennas on HF are North South, or East West, to optimize reception of stations, along with the vertical. This makes it very nice while running the NORCARS net on thursday mornings.


I am the Pastor of a local church in my area, and the most important thing to me is the Lord, and whether or not you are known of Him.  John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  John 10:7  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.8  All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.    9  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. Hebrews 13:20  Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 1 John 5:13  These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 1 John 1:5  ¶This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1 Corinthians 14:33  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. May God use these scriptures to reveal to you the truth. If you want to read these verses, in English there is only one translation that has not been perverted and that is the KJV, the Authorized version. If you read another language, be sure to use a version that has been translated from the received Greek texts. God Bless you. Below there is more information about my equipment.



The above is a photo of my secondary computers screen showing the Air traffic over my home in real time. This computer does not have an internet connection, so I am using an SDR receiver, with PlanePlotter Software; also a program to operate the receiver on 1090mhz to receive the airplanes transponders. The Planeplotter software then recieves their GPS and I.D. signals and places them in real time onto my screen. The current area of observation covers a 200 mile radius. Bottom right  of the screen just under the word imagery 2016 is Washington DC. and just above it and against the right side of screen that big gray blob is Baltimore, and the orange circle in the middle is my House. You can see I live in the mountains of Western MD.

I just hung this Directive Systems 6 M beam, (the bottom one)DSEJX6-50 on tuesday May 5th 2017. Wow is all I can say, great antenna. it is 19 feet long, up at 41 feet. I replaced my Cushcraft 3 element I had up in the air for the past 25 plus years. This new antenna is an amazing improvement over that little cushcraft. I had really great performers on the other vhf uhf bands I thought it was time to get 6 meters up to that level aswell.
