Hi everyone!

I have been interested in radio since I can remember and was first licensed in 1975 as WN8WNF. I taught computer science at Meridian Junior High School and retired in May of 2005 at the age of 54.

In December 2016, I bought a ID-51 and a ID-5100. I'm running a raspberry Pi 3 with a DVMEGA as a hotspot. You can usually find me onREF  01C, 24C, or 30C or on DMR at 3126 (Michigan) 3112 (Florida). 

My hobbies include flying, sail boating, lighthouses, fishing, and a member of USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 24-1 in Bay City, Michigan My Flotilla's Webpage

Amateur Radio Light House Society number ARLHS# 527. Feld Hell # 2533

Old Man International Single Sideband Society Charter and VIP Member number OMISS# 59.

I enjoy working openings on 6 meters and am having a blast. I built a halo out of 1/2 inch copper tubing and a 3 element beam. When at home I am in EN73 and when up north at the 5th wheel trailer I'm in EN64 .

One of my HF antennas is a Hustler 4BTV and use that on the higher HF bands and the other is an inverted Vee 40 meters and 75 meters fed off of one feedling.

My call is on one of the 440 UHF repeaters for FM and KC8ARJ on the same repeater for D-Star. The repeater is usually linked to REF 24C.

One of the recently fun activities was receiving  WAS on the mode JT65 HF.

In 2004, I built my own cedar strip kayak and spend all the time I can in the summer paddling the lakes and rivers of Michigan. Its a 17' 6" Guillemot design and it has been a great boat. Our kayaking club is paddling at least twice a week in the summer and they are a great bunch to go with when I not out solo.

Thanks for looking me up and have a great day.

Walt
