Ham radio op N3VEM. Into HF mostly, but also run a repeater, and dabble with rockets a little bit as a cross-over hobby.

- Respecter of the living web & justice is for everyone.

Ask me why I don’t own a microwave.

I have a day job, but it's not what defines me - I'd rather talk about , , , , , or anything else you are passionate about.

Might swear a little when angry. Sorry.

Back in 2022 I flew to AZ and took my IC7300 with me. I signed in at the Titan Missile Museum south of Tucson and got permission to use the discone at the facility. The antenna is 80 feet tall and has great SWRs on all frequencies. The tuner within the 7300 didn't need to work hard at all.

@michaelc - love your mask in your profile pic! I had a lamp with a shade with that same pattern on it when I was growing up, so seeing your park made me feel very nostalgic for that lamp and whatever may have come of it!

I didn’t make many contacts, but I keep nodding off and head-butting my mic on its boom ad a result, so it’s time for me to go to bed.

Had a nice visit at the W3RRR field day site - 8yo even wanted to try a contact, so took a turn on the GOTA station and had a short chat👍. We stopped for ice cream after as a prize😀. I’ll prob get on the air after everyone is in bed, to make a few contacts myself.

It's a little last minute, but I decided to do a Ham Radio Field Day based give-away! The biggest and best Pride Display at an ARRL Field Day site wins any 3 clothing items from my subversive radio shop! Post pics here and mention me, or email them to me. Please share far and wide (on other social networks too, if you have a presence on them!)

Will visit a site later, but for this morning I’m moving our stepping stones and potting bench and stuff around that is by the chicken coop, because the spouse ordered 4 ducklings, and I need to install a little pond for them, since our current little pond is outside the space they’ll have access to. (And I prob wouldn’t want them in that one anyway - ducks can make a mess of a small pond pretty fast😀)
