Amateur Radio

I was first licensed in 1966 at the young age of 15.  I operate a Flex 6300 software defined radio in CW, SSB, and digital modes.  I also have a Yaesu FTM-400DR mounted in my Jeep.  I am usually beaconing APRS while on the trail.

Off Road

I recently replaced my aging Jeep Wrangler TJ with a new 2013 Wrangler JK.  I have it tricked out with a variety of communivations and navigation equipment including a permanently mounted Windows 8 computer with 4G comms.


I enjoy nature photography and usually have cameras at the ready while I am on the trail.  I shoot with a Canon 50D and 400D.  I also have a variety of dash cameras and GoPro cameras mounted on the jeep.

Welcome to my Website

This is the place that I like to display my hobbies and interests.  I also have a lot of opinions, and if you care what they are, you can read them on my WordPress Blog.  You can comment too, but you'll have to send me an email and introduce yourself.  If I just use the signup utility on WordPress, I get several hundred spam requests from Russia and China.  I have no idea why they find me of any interest.  I also host the online forum for the Maricopa Amateur Radio Association.  You can find that on the menu at the top of this page.
