My Hobbies and Interests


My current interests are Amateur (Ham) Radio, computers, Visual Studio 2005/2008, and electronic design.  My favorite Ham bands are 6 and 2 meters SSB.  I have 6 PC's in the household and can always be depended upon to have my nose in a PC or a radio.  The current Ham rigs are an Kenwood TS-2000, Kenwood TS-480HX, Alinco DR-130T, Alinco, DR-235T,  Radio Shack HTX-202, and Yaesu FT-470.

I am in the process of finishing a new "Ham Shack" in a "bonus" room over the garage.  The project is now in the forth year and is getting closer to a finish date!  Three towers, "a yet-to-be-purchased" free standing 55' tower for a 14 - 30 MHz log-periodic, and two Rohn 45G, for the satellite array, 2 meter, 220 MHz, 70 cm., and 6 meter beams, still await setup.  I also enjoy programming microcontrollers (PIC 16Cxx family) and program development in Visual Studio.
