This site is likely to be perpetually under construction. I hope to design something a little nicer-looking in the near future, including some equipment pics and documentation for projects and kits I've put together.

Currently, "the shack" on a workbench in my basement consists of:
  • Kenwood TS-450SAT
  • RIGblaster Advantage for digital modes
  • Kenwood TM-D700A
  • Yaesu FT-1500M
  • Astron RS-20M power supply
  • RIGrunner 4005 for power distribution

  • Radiowavz G5RV Jr strung between two trees in my backyard at 30 feet
  • Comet GP-3 VHF/UHF stick at 20 feet

  • Kenwood TM-D710GA with Comet SBB-5 antenna
  • Yaesu VX-7R

    Find my mobile station via APRS (Automatic Packet Reporting System)
