Ham Member Lookups: 6822


I prefer direct postal mail QSL cards. It is fun to collect tangible cards from the ether! 100% reply.

My website: www.levi.maaia.com

I have been a ham since 2006. My station includes a simple end-fed wire antenna attached to my trusty Kenwood TS-480 HF rig running 100 watts and a 144 MHz transverter from Ukraine by UT5JCW, as well as an assortment of HTs and VHF+ base and mobile FM, C4FM and DMR rigs. I am also interested in using RTL-SDR hardware in various homebrew radio projects, especially with Raspberry Pi computers.


Amateur Radio in Education

Since May 2017, I have served on the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station U.S. Education Committee. ARISS is a NASA-sponsored program allowing students to experience the excitement of talking directly with crew members of the International Space Station, inspiring them to pursue interests and careers in science, technology, engineering and math, and engaging them with radio science technology through amateur radio.

As a classroom teacher, I have worked with high school students to create high-altitude balloon probes that used amateur television for live video downlinks and APRS for tracking and data reporting. Read more about the Anacapa Near Space Exploration Club missions that climbed as high as 111,814 feet!


The video below was featured at Dayton Hamvention and in QST showcasing the two ANSEC near space balloon probes:

In May 2013, my students contacted the International Space Station, NA1SS as part of the ARISS program. Below is a short YouTube video from KEYT-TV of our QSO with Astronaut Chris Cassidy (look for me at 2:44):


QST: "QSL Fom Cuba"
In April 2015, I had the opportunity to visit Cuba as part of a professional research delegation. During my trip, I visited Joel, CO2YQ and his fellow members of the Radioaficionados de Cotorro club in Havana. A feature article I wrote about our meeting was published in the October 2015 edition of QST magazine on page 70.

This is a photo of Joel, CO2YQ and his wife Elizabeth and my father Bill and me next to Abel, CO2SG and Guillermo, CO2ECO on the right:
