2016-11-28 - Well last year was very interesting. In July of 2015, I was diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer Stage 4. By August 13th, 2015, I was having chemotherapy. These session lasted all day. There were six of them spaced three weeks apart. The last session was on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving 2015. Then came recovery. Currently, I am in full remission. It has taken a year to get me back to where I could operate a bit this last weekend in the CQ WW CW contest. It is nice to be able to play.

One of the fun things, I got to do while having the treatments, was to operate JT-65 and PSK-31. I was able to remote into my system at home and operate from the chair in the infusion center with my laptop. This helped pass the time. Off and On, I have been able to operate, depending on how things are going. Ham radio has provided a chance to have a great distraction, while healing from the treatment. Now on to the next thing in life and ham radio.    

2009-08-27 - Time for a bit of an update, I have added a FlexRadio-3000 to the systems here. I am using it Mobile, portable, and at the home location. So far, I am finding very flexable, great receiver that allows for very steep skirts on the filtering. Intefacing has gone exceptionally, well. I am using a laptop that allows very portable and mobile use. Bluetooth headsets can be used via the laptop. A great setup to allow me to get on more, as I work.

In 2004, I added a 72 Foot Tower with a new set of Quads. The lower Quad is a Cubex Mantis II. It has 2 Elements on 40 and 30 Meters with 4 Elements 20,17,15,12, and 10 Meters. The next up is a 4 Element 6 Meters and 8 Elements on 2 Meters Quad. Next up is a 440 Mhz Yagi. On the top is a 6 meter on up discone. The antenna systen was started in February of 2003 and completed on September 7, 2003. It has been a pleasure to work many stations with these antennas. The rigs being used are a TS-850S by Kenwood and an FT-817 Yeasu.

I came back to Amatuer Radio in 1990. I hosted the International TCP/IP Gateway Robot at the fuller.net site from 1992 to 2012. I was the Montana Section Emergency Coordinator from October 1995 to April 2008.
