I have worked at the Johnson Space Center since 1989.  I started out as an electronics tech. and did that for 16 years.  I have worked on many projects that have or are currently flying in space.  I am currently a facility manager in a hazardous testing area at JSC.  My main interests are ham radio, computers, photography and shooting/hunting.

The main HF rig here is a Kenwood TS-2000 with an Ameritron AL-811 Amplifier running that into a Moseley TA-33 at about 46 feet ASL.

I have recently gotten into SSTV/FT8 and having a blast with that.

I also have been building Battery go boxes as well as go boxes for my rigs.  Here are some of the pics.




Here is a look at the business end of the battery box showing the (Starting from upper left) the dual USB charger, the cigarette lighter plug, the volt meter and the powerpoles.  Note the power switch in the middle of the panel to switch the volt meter and the USB plugs.

Battery Box

Inside look at the battery box.  There are 2 - 18 AH batteries wired in parallel here.  There is also a 400 watt 12vdc to 110vac inverter that hooks into the powerpoles to supply 400 watts of 110VAC power if needed.
