I send my logs to LOTW, QRZ and less frequently, EQSL.

I have nothing to sell now.

 

 

 

I joined the Coast Guard and specialized in telecomms & datacomms in the 80's.  We worked on telephone systems, high voltage lighthouse power systems, datacomms, all sorts of cabling and antenna towers.

After the Coast Guard, I found that IT was my calling with a heavy emphasis in various flavors of UNIX and Linux.  I currently lead a team of System Integrators at a major aerospace company, and have been developing compliance applications in perl, python and C.

April 2016, I finally got my general class license.  To honor my grandfather; I requested and received his callsign from 1931.  I still have one of his orginial QSL cards.

HF is a blast!   I love 17m in the mornings and 40 at night.  They're a lot of fun and what I learn is (to me) amazing.

I have an 80-10 fan dipole that is far too large for Maison Foobar's vast, rolling 1/4 acre and I've been forced to run the legs wherever possible.  80 won't tune at all, so it's useless right now.

My station consists of :

A few homebuilt workstations running Ubuntu 16.04. 

FreeNas ISCSI shares for storage.

Icom IC-7300

Yaesu FT-991

Yaesu FT-221R

MFJ 939Y Antenna tuner

Alpha Antenna Pro Master 80-10M vertical.

Radiowavz 80-10 meter fan dipole

2 Meter homebrew 3 element yagi.
