Licensed since 1977, I’ve been a ham radio enthusiast for most of my life.
I’m a Life Member and ardent supporter of the ARRL. I’m also a member of the Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC) because I support our good neighbors to the north. I’m a member of AMSAT-NA and AMSAT-UK because the future of amateur radio is in space.
My operating interests are diverse. I’m a radio telegrapher and enjoy ragchewing and sometimes a little contesting. Two-hour sprints and state QSO parties, etc. I have handheld equipment for chasing FM satellites and I plan to one day build an EME groundstation.
I could tell you more, but then what would be the point of this journal?
