KC2RGW - Amateur Radio, Etc.


I'm just the average ham, licensed in 2007, a background in computer systems and architecture and a dabbler in many modes of operation. I spend about 25% of my time in keyboard to keyboard digi mode operation. I'm a big fan and early adopter of SDR technology as well.

I like playing with

  • SSB rag chewing, opportunistic interesting DX, almost no contesting

  • Digital modes, like Thor, Olivia, Feld Hell, JS8Call, PSK-31

  • Packet - yes there is hardly anybody to talk to on it, I still like it.

  • NBEMS and RACES oriented systems for backup infrastructure

  • FM Simplex, it works better than you think!

  • AM, yes Yaaaayyy Emmm

You can reach me via QRZ, my contact info is there.
