Started out listening to Short Wave Radio as a teenager. Collected many QSL cards just from SWL. 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. Professionally, I am an IT Director and work a lot with Linux and SQL database servers. I am involved with ARES (South Texas Section), RACES (State of Texas), W5YI VEC, CERT Instructor and SKYWARN Spotter.
Hope to cross paths on the bands sometimes.
