If you are trying to QSO my station via JT-65 or JT-9, I run QRP only so please be patient.
I started out listening to Short Wave Radio as a teenager. Collected many QSL cards just from SWL. Years passed and one day I overheard a couple of Ham Radio Operators while I was tuning the bands and became intrigued. Not knowing how to become a Ham, it wasn't until the Fall of 1990 that I got my Novice Ticket and became KB5OLJ. Tech Class soon followed and assigned the callsign N5SSH. Didn't quite like the call at first, at least not until I tried it out on CW. It grew on me after that. Soon afterward got my General ticket and eventually the Extra.
- I enjoy digital modes whether it be packet, JT65, JT9, PSK, RTTY or HSMM-MESH.
I have enjoyed Amateur Radio over the years but my biggest thrill came when my wife passed her Tech exam and is now N5CTA.
I am involved with ARES (South Texas Section), RACES (State of Texas), W5YI VEC and SKYWARN Spotter.
Professionally, I am an IT Director and work a lot with Linux and SQL database servers whether they be bare metal or virtual. Although I heavily use the Secure Shell protocol in my work, let it be known that my callsign is not a vanity call. I guess it was destined.
I hope to cross paths on the bands sometimes.
