About Me

Communicator. Filmmaker. Photographer. Senior Policy Advisor. Amateur Radio Operator. Military officer. Pilot. Adventure biker. Husband and dad.

As far as Amateur Radio is concerned, my current favorite activity is field operating. I recently drove up the Dempster Highway, as far as Tuktoyaktuk, on my motorcycle, in part to be able to operate from the far North. I regularly go on outings with four other HAMs, usually in the Virginia/Maryland region.

Some of my planned trips include another trip up to the Labrador, another one down to Cape Hateras, and definitely another trip up to Alaska/Yukon/NWT.

I have two HF rigs. My Yaesu 891 is permanently installed in my Jeep. My ICOM 7300 is loose for now. It comes with me on all my major trips. My greatest joy is my antennas. I love building wire antennas of all types. I also like to mix and match in the field sometimes setting up as many as five antennas. Obviously, before doing so I do my homework with EZNEC.

Future rigs? My wallet is my only obstacle. But funds permitting, I do have a list of about five goodies. I won't share them for now, but suffice it to say that I'm saving up!
