Ham Member Lookups: 6716


I'm Sam Rose, KC2LRC, from Syracuse, NY. First licensed in June 2003 when I was 13 years old. Some of you will remember the ridiculous photo I had on here then!

I attended Jamesville-Dewitt High School (class of '08), where I was the president of the J-D Amateur Radio Club from '07-'08, and was also involved in the theater (as sound crew) and the yearbook committee. I studied electrical engineering with the Clarkson class of '12. I was president of Clarkson's radio club K2CC '10-'12, founded Clarkson University Gamers' Initiative, and was involved in the Clarkson Open Source Institute.

I now work with C Speed, LLC in Liverpool, NY doing engineering and data/performance analysis work on the C Speed LightWave Radar, a next generation S-band air traffic surveillance radar which is the first in its class to be able to mitigate clutter from wind farms while still maintaining detection performance. Radar work is a playground for a ham radio operator, and quite a different use of RF - detection of objects as opposed to telecommunications.

In the world of ham radio, I'm interested in contest operation, satellite work, IRLP links, public service (the crazier the event, the more I like it!) electronics projects and radio restorations, integration of computers and radios, and special events such as balloon launches, ISS retransmissions, and weird contests. Having started so early, I'm particularly interested in introducing ham radio to youth and young adults, and mentoring anyone who is getting interested in the hobby. 

I run IRLP node 4117 in Syracuse. It's a small-coverage system - probably less than half a mile at best, but if you can reach it, feel free to use it! It outputs 500mW on 446.700 simplex with a PL of 103.5 Hz. If you're on the other side of the system and would like to contact me on it, email me in advance as I'm often away from home, or do 't have the radio turned on.

I have been interested in music for as long as I remember, and currently I am an occasional co-host on a live vinyl radio show, The Wax Museum with Ronnie Dark, where we do it the old-fashioned way, with two turntables and a microphone, and bring three hours of lesser-known but great rock music to life each Sunday, 7-10pm ET. We enjoy playing both lesser-known tracks from big name artists as well as tracks from fantastic local acts. You can listen at www.wvoaradio.com (or 87.7 FM in Syracuse) each Sunday, or record the show on www.dar.fm.

Other interests: computers, Linux, photography, videogames, Subaru, piano playing, bartending, US politics, clean energy development, and travel.

I started actively QSLing during the 2014 Centennial QSO Party and am good on LoTW, direct, or bureau. Right now I don't have cards to send back, but once things calm down a bit I plan on making a new one. I still owe some of you QSL for satellite contacts I made starting in 2008 - most of them only exist as voice recordings unfortunately, so at some point I'll figure out what those were and get them to LoTW.

73 everyone, see you on the air, at events, at CNY-area hamfests, and at Dayton Hamvention!
