Hello and thank you for looking at my QRZ page. I’ve been licensed in ham radio for nearly 40 years. I mostly stick to HF, but I'm also active on the VHF/UHF bands. I'm enjoying my latest venture into DStar, and look forward to exploring DMR in the future.
I’m often active from a QTH in northern Arizona. At 6500 feet, it's a great escape from the summer heat of the valley. Since I live within developments that prohibit antennas, all of my operations are in a stealth mode to accommodate the hidden antennas for HF. Among the obvious limitations, this can on occasion attenuate my receivers' sensitivity due to nearby objects and structures. This is especially prevalent with weak signals and during high noise levels.
During the summer of 2016 I decided to get back into CW after a very long absence. It would have been much easier over all these years to have continued with CW after the test, but at the time I just wanted to get past the 20 WPM requirement and move on to SSB. Now, I'm enjoying CW more than I ever thought possible.
I retired a few years back and decided it wasn't for me, so now my day job has me creating voiceovers for a variety of applications including eLearning, television and radio commercials and interactive web-based program delivery.
Other activities I enjoy include road cycling, flying RC helicopters, Jeeping in the Arizona backcountry and riding my sport touring bike.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you down the log.
