Ham Member Lookups: 2308

 

I was first Licenced in January of 2005 and have enjoyed various aspects of the hobby very much since then.  I like to understand radio theory, especially home brewing transceivers and operating QRP, something about stealth operations in an apartment works well with QRP. Currently I have a Chameleon CHA-F Loop Plus and it seems to work really well from my balcony.

I am an interactive designer by training and I enjoy getting on the first global network with an organized name space. Ham's are resourcefull and perhaps the earliest hackers in tech, I hope that new generations of young people continue to get into Amateur Radio.  Developments like using Arduino, Raspberry Pi and SDR will bring young hams into the fold and keep us old dogs learning new tricks.

My equipment is quite modest but effective, and I am most proud of the radios that I've built. My store bought equipment include a Yaesu FT-60r, A Kenwood TM-V71 Dual Band Mobile Transceiver configured in a Go-Box, a Ten Tec Century 21 CW Transceiver, Icom IC-718 and a Yaesu FT-817ND.  I've resurrected an AEA Pakratt PK-232 Packet TNC and combined it with a Yaesu FT-2900 and regularly connect to a PBBS in Long Island.

I blog about my radio experiments at http://w2dab.bamford.net

I live and work in Manhattan/NYC as a designer and love to get out with my HT and two Jack Russel Terriers.

All the best and 73

 

Operating W1AW in Newington, CT at ARRL Headquarters!  This is so far from QRP that I'll never
get out like that again.
