I live on South Whidbey Island WA, and am active on the VHF/UHF bands (including 220 and 900mhz), mainly FM, P-25, DMR, and D-Star.
I recently became active again in HF, using voice and data modes (PSK31). I am also brushing up on my CW, and would like to become more proficient in that mode. Currently, I think I can pull off 8 to 10 words per minute. With more practice, I think I can get back up to 15wpm before 2017 is out.
I can usually be found on:
441.875 (103.5), Buck Mtn Repeater
444.700 (103.5), Queen Anne Repeater (Seattle)
444.550 (141.3), Columbia Tower Repeater
147.220 (127.3), South Whidbey Island repeater.
224.780 (103.5), Lyman Hill
444.850 (NAC 293) P-25 repeater on Cougar Mtn.
DMR - On the DCI PNW network, on the Washington 1 talkgroup (accessed from the various DMR repeaters around the PNW)
D-Star - Any local repeater that connects to REF029C (K7LWH, WA7HTJ, N7SNO)
And, I scan many other "local" repeaters around Snohomish County and Seattle
I also host an APRS Digipeater/Igate at my house, that helps to fill in the Edmonds/Mukilteo/Everett areas. It is on VHF/1200 baud and UHF/9600 baud. The Puget Sound UHF 9600 baud APRS system is on 440.800, and uses the usual WIDE paradigm.
For 2017, I really want to fulfill my promise to get active in SOTA activity, using a Yaesu FT-817ND (with W4RT dual filter board and BHI DSP filter). I really need to get out and do some climbing and doing some HF
