Hamming it up.
I am a co-host on the show Ham Nation which can be seen live every Wednesday night in Twit.tv or anytime on Youtube. I get to talk about contesting and DXing; my 2 favorite subjects. You can see my video segments on everything from Contesting Basics to getting LotW set up and installed by clicking the link below.
We are approaching our 300th episode! In honor of that we will have all sorts of fun ways to celebrate ham radio style. To learn more just click here --> W9H.
I love Contact sports.
One of my favorite aspects of this hobby is contesting.
My Working Conditions
I have many radios to play with. Main one I use for SSB is an Icom 7851; for CW & digital is a K3S. Below is the antenna farm...not including wire antennas.
Here is also a 3-minute video of our antenna farm
I am a member of: The Northern CA DX Foundation , The Metro DX Club , The Greater Milwaukee DX Association ,The Society of Midwest Contesters, NIDXA, Maxim member of the ARRL, and INDEXA. I am also an ARRL VE.
In 2014, I was on the team that operated in ARRL DX SSB from Saba Island PJ6A. We won 1st place World in the LP category and broke the World record. I was the N.A. pilot station for Wake Island K9W in 2013 and Swains Island NH8S in 2012. I was also the chief pilot for Amsterdam Island FT5ZM in 2014 and will be the chief pilot for the upcoming Bouvet Island 3Y0Z Dxpedition in 2018.
Besides my obsession with amateur radio, I enjoy camping, traveling, hiking, fishing, bowling, gardening, and baking. I have also taken some sailing and flying lessons.
Here I am in my orignal shack in WI with my dog Skipper nicknamed K3POD since she was a rescue with only 3 legs
Here I am operating from WB9Z's amazing shack; which is now my new QTH...lucky me.
Here I am operating the special event station at the 2011 EAA Fly in.
Talk about your high noise levels. Except it wasn't plasma TV's or power lines,
it was jets and war birds with radial engines.
This QRP radio was my very first home brew project. And~~~ it worked on the 1st try!!!
This is WB9Z's custom-made 80 meter rotatable dipole.It's about 135' long and 5 7/8" at the center (YL not included).
