My Stations


I operate from two locations:

     Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, running K3s (100 watts) (Icom PW-1 ~800 watts);

     Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, running ICOM-9100 (100 watts).


Michigan Antennas:

     Off center fed dipole at 70 feet (21 meters) radiating East-West (designed for 80, 40, 20, 17, 12, 10 meters);

     HexBeam (DXengineering) on push up mast with rotator at base.


Hawaii Antenna:

     CrankIR vertical; Alpha Delta DX-EE radiating East-West.  


Computer: Mac primarily running MacLoggerDX and Fldigi under OSX; Windows 10 via VMWare emulation as needed.


QSL Information


Direct: I respond to all paper cards. SASE appreciated, but not necessary





My Plans


Neither QTH will permit me a large tower. Thus I am experimenting with various antenna designs of a more stealthy nature. Currently my favorite is my Hexbeam on a push up mast.


My Background and Interests


I have an electrical engineering degree and a law degree, both from The Ohio State University. I have practiced as a patent attorney specializing in telecommunications, electronics and software for over 30 years.


I got my first Novice license in 1969, and currently hold an Extra Class license, although I did not become active until Spring of 2015 when I acquired the ICOM 9100 and put up my first antenna. The numerous shortwave radios I have collected over the years shows that radio has held my interest since childhood, as certainly every ham will understand.


Morse code: Yes. I’ve learned it four times: Boy Scouts in 1963,  Novice test in 1969, General test in 1994, Active ham in 2015. After several months of daily practice in summer of 2016, I am now beginning to enjoy CW. I enjoy using my Begali keys: Adventure and Expedition paddles, Blade straight key and Swing cootie key. I also have a J-38 on my desk at work for occassional practice with code oscillator.


Antenna Theory: The physics of antennas and propagation has always held an interest for me. As an EE student in college I worked at the OSU ElectroScience Lab where I built experimental antennas. We were working to propagate radar energy into the ground for geologic exploration. It’s hard to imaging propagating energy into the ground, but that is what we did. Today I’m more interested in propagating energy into the ionosphere, so I can meet other hams with similar interests. It’s been fun to revisit my old textbooks and then try out antenna designs using todays software modeling tools. 


Japan: A great deal of my professional life has involved working with clients in Japan. I have a keen interest in the Japanese culture and have intermediate level Japanese language skills. Japan is a major focus of my Hawaii QTH.

I have not written any amateur radio publications yet, but I do have three books in print related to software and business method patents. If that sort of thing interests you, please check out my LinkedIn page. https://www.linkedin.com/in/gregorystobbs
