Greetings from the Lone Star State, thanks for visiting my page!


QSL is always appreciated and reciprocated, I accept QSL via eQSL.cc, and direct (no SASE required).


As a child I was fascinated with radio and electronics, and I spent a lot of time experimenting with CBs, shortwave radios, and electronics kits. After forgetting all about ham radio in high school my interest in the hobby was rekindled in college when I was studying electronics. In 2000 I passed the Technician and General class tests, along with the GROL commercial exam. In 2009 I upgraded to Extra and I was granted the vanity call WA5UP. I now work in the telecommunications industry doing RF planning and system design. I have a son, Austin (2012), and a daughter, Addison (2015). Between work and family I'm not able to operate as much as I used to, but when I am on the air I tend to operate mostly HF SSB and PSK31. You might also catch me on one of the local 2 meter repeaters if you are in the DFW or Texoma area. I am a member of the Plano Amateur Radio Klub (PARK), and the Grayson County Amateur Radio Club (GCARC). Whenever possible I support their activities and help maintain their repeaters (mainly the monkey work). Additionally, I am an accredited VE for both the ARRL and W5YI, and I teach ham related classes from time to time. Aside from ham radio I enjoy playing with my kids, doing woodworking projects, gardening, and riding motorcycles.
