Hi, I’m Robert. That’s me on the right with my dog Garbage. He’s pretty dumb, but I still love him. I’ve been involved with ham radio since 2006. That’s not completely accurate. I was first licensed as a Technician in 2006, but quickly lost interest in the hobby. I allowed my license to expire in 2016, but in 2020 I gained a renewed interest in ham radio and I’ve been involved ever since.
Some of my intrest include satellite operations, digital modes, and digital voice modes. I currently run the YSF Reflector Radio Hackers (Reflector: #33360) for hams who love to explore the technical side of amateur radio. Currently I’m operating with a Yaesu FT3D and a custom built hotspot using a LoneStar MMDVM Simplex board. The next major purchase will be a Yaesu FTDX 3000 in the later part of 2020; I’ll finally be able to jump into the world of HF!
