Special thanks to VP9NI for the use of his station!

 

 

 

Welcome, thanks for looking me up!

 

                                                                                   

 

The picture is of Engine #2 where I rode as a Lt. at Station #2 for the last 10 years until being promoted to Capt. in 2017.   This is the newest of the 4 stations that Schenectady has.

                                                                                

 

The station shown below is Schenectady Fire Department Station #1.  I am currently riding on Truck #1 shown in the profile picture as Captain after being promoted in 2017.  You may hear me on the air from the firehouse using my remote station.

 

CURRENT PROJECT.....  Remote base stations.  1 for HF, 1 for VHF.   HF mobile is awesome, but it's also a hassle, especially in the NE winter months.  Next best thing?   HF while mobile, but remote back to the base station!  I've used netbooks, utilizing my WiFi hotspot on the phone, a headset, VOX and HRD Remote Server with good results.  HOWEVER!   It's cumbersome.   In my ever continuing quest for simpler operations without performance compromise I found RemoteHams.com  Everything at my base station is integrated into the remote. My radio, my antenna tuner/switch, amp adn rotor.  They have some great software, including an Android app.   Find my stations on the air at the link,.   I have one HF 6-80m and a local VHF for simplex and the K2AE Schenectady NY Repeater, along with some others.

I operate phone, CW, and digi modes, mostly CW.

Will be trying to work HF QRP with a FT-817 from around during openings on the higher bands. Can't wait to see what happens. Hoping to be able to work some digital QRP also.  I've added a Wolphilink interface, and some Android digi software in order to be able to acomplish this. 

Special thanks to K2UYK, W2XAD, W4AFD, NY2U, K2HAT and so many others for helping me along the ham path.

I will QSL 100% via the buro for international friends and direct for domestic. NO SASE required, you pay your way, I'll pay mine.  Happy DX!

 

                                                                   

Triple Play Award

WAS in CW, Phone, and Digi!   Chased HI for over a year on digital, finally was able to grab them on RTTY and confirmed on LOTW.
