I'm an avid radio hobbyist with a passion for seeking out shortwave anamolies, utility and numbers stations, listening for military, secret and encrypted radio traffic, unusual digital signals, and all of the fun one can have while attempting to solve the mystery of oddities found on HF radio. I enjoy the discussions found at the Number Stations, Amateur Radio, and Signal Identification forums on Reddit, and at the HF Underground message board. I also contribute to the Spooks Newsletterwhich can be read at The Spooks Archive.

I am a student of CW/Morse code and am teaching myself how to hand-send. I also enjoy using JT65 digital mode.

My radio rig consists of an ICOM 7300, an MFJ-464 CW keyer/reader, and straight key, all hooked to an Alpha Loop antenna.


I operate a 5W - 24/7 - 10m beacon at 28.2063 MHz (W9SPY/B) using a Realistic HTX-100, and an MFJ-452 CW keyer, wired to an RS-20A Astron power supply. The beacon frequency was assigned by the IARU Region 2 HF Beacon Coordinator, WJ5O, better known as "Beacon Bill" Hays.

(If you hear my beacon, send me an email via the link at the top of the page for an electronic QSL card).


Among my other interests are computers and the Internet, electronics (Arduino), weather and storm watching, oceanography, stargazing, music, film, reading, and travel. I have a passion for learning and am always on the lookout for new things to explore.

I am a veteran of the United States Coast Guard (1979-1981) and a former US Merchant Marine who has traveled all over the world.

I have been a shortwave listener since early childhood and believe that, even in the age of the Internet, radio is and will remain important for many years to come.
