Thanks for checking out my call!

I was first Licensed in 1993 as a Tech and upgraded to General in 2008. At one time I was quite heavily involved with ARES/RACES. I had held the Emergency Coordinator position for Waukesha County, WI (about a year). Although not as involved, I still do advocate the emergency communication role for Amateur Radio.

My friend, Rob Murphy (N9RXE), was the one who got me involved with ham radio back in the day. He is now a SK and will be sorely missed! He passed away due to Cancer while he was serving in Germany with the United States Air Force.

My favorite mode is RTTY, but I also enjoy just about any digital mode. I also enjoy 2m packet and its various applications; APRS, Winlink, etc. You can find me on HF SSB as well. FM repeaters are useful and can be fun, but you will rarely find me on them.

Current gear: Kenwood TH-78A (HT), Yaesu VX-8DR (HT), Kenwood D-710 (Mobile), Kenwood TS-2000 (Home), Radio Shack 202 (HT for packet radio - with a Kantronics KPC3). Also purchased one of those Chinese 2m/70cm radios for backup. 

I am a big fan of D-Star these days. I have collected an ICOM IC-92ad, 880H mobile, ID-51, and a DVAP Dongle. Just wish it wasn't so expensive so other hams would get on board.

I live in an extreme CC&R subdivision and it gets pretty difficult to get out onto the air. My antenna is a 20 meter dipole in the attic. It is set up in an inverted V fashion and I use an SGC-239 tuner (A big thanks to KC9NGZ for the help on putting together this configuration). Yes it is pretty much a dummy load on most bands, but it does seem to work well. I have made contacts all over the world with this setup. Working toward my DXCC.

I have to be honest, as of late, I have been more interested in building things that aid in my Amateur Radio hobby rather than actually talking on the radio. I have enjoyed making antennas, radios, computer radio interfaces, software, etc. I have even recently built a 3D printer from scratch so that I can make stuff for this hobby.

If you wish, you may QSL via LOTW, EQSL, and Direct.
