My Ham Radio Interests
I was born in New York City, moved to Boulder, CO in 1986 and then to North Carolina in 1994. Very happily married to my wonderful wife and best friend Terry. I have 3 beautiful daughters whom I would do anything for.
I am also a professional photographer with many published photo credits from books, magazines and newspapers.
In my spare time I spot severe storms for the National Weather Service.
I have been listening to shortwave and scanners since the late 1970's, been on 11 meters from 1975 to 2005. On May 31, 2008 I took the Technician test and passed with flying colors! One year later on June 11, 2009 I took the General test and passed that to!
I am an Accredited ARRL Volunteer Examiner (VE) and ARRL Field Examiner (FE).

Currently Working on DXCC
I QSL 100% I prefer Direct. LoTW, eQSL are also OK. I am also good in the OMISS Beauro. All SWL reports will also be confirmed with a special edition QSL card. I believe that QSL'ing is another step in the process of the contact and I make it a point to QSL every new contact that I make. USA and Canada stations do not need to send a SASE, other DX stations please include SASE or return postage.
Working conditions here are an Icom IC-730, Yaesu FT-840, Baofeng UV-5RA and an RCI-2950DX. 5 homebrew dipols, all in flat-top configuration for 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 meters. Max output is 100 watts, no amps or tuners here. When mobile I use an Icom IC-V8000 (75 watts) on 2 meters and a 1/4 wave mag-mount antenna.
I can be found on the local repeaters 146.880, 147.045, 145.450, 147.440, and 146.520 simplex all the time. I'm also very active on Echolink (Node # 396255), and CQ100. On CQ100 I monitor 14.200mhz 24/7. On HF I can be found on 40m around 7.185 to 7.200mhz, on 20m around 14.260 to 14.290mhz, on 15m from 21.275 to 21.310mhz.and 10m 28.300 to 28.600mhz. Give me a call sometime.
