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 prefer HF but have been known to join in on VHF/UHF repeater discussions on occasion.
- I like building HF antennas and experiment with that every so often.
- I like trying to hit the satellites from time to time, more miss than hit at the moment.
- I can be reached on Winlink if you happen to have a packet, Winmor or Pactor set-up.
- I upload new contacts to LOTW at the end of each day that I'm active.

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.
