I have been a computer programmer for the last 21 years. I use Java, Adobe Flex, JBoss AS and SQL Server. My forte has been in the eCommerce and Spend Analysis areas.
I got interested in amateur radio way back when I was a kid, but never got my license because of the code requirement. I did build a few crystal sets back then (didn't we all?), but never really got started until 2011 (at age 47) when I finally got my Technicians ticket and immediately upgraded to General. Passed Amateur Extra in March 2012.
I like all things science related and enjoy Astronomy; I have an Orion SkyView Pro 8" reflector. Unfortunately my area has a high amount of light pollution so viewing is limited most of the times. I also enjoy all kinds of gaming - war games, board games, card games. But, strangely, I do not like computer gaming.
I am a member of the North Fulton Amateur Radio League (NFARL), Gwinnett Amatuer Radio Society (GARS) and Gwinnett County ARES.
I mainly hang out on 15m - 40m bands in SSB and 15m-20m JT65, PSK31, and RTTY digital modes. I made my first satellite contact on 5/21/14 with KK4VAU via the S0-50 FM Repeater. I used an Arrow dual band antenna and a Yaesu VX-8DR HT at 5 watss.
QSL: via ARRL outgoing bureau; direct for all U.S. and Canadian call signs (No SASE required). eQSL and LOTW.
Prefer using MAC OS X, but also have a laptop running Windows 7.
I am working on my WAS, WAC, etc. awards, both phone and JT65. So I really appreciate those paper QSL cards.
I really enjoy working special event stations, especially ones with military themes.
