I've gone through and made quite a few changes to the web site. Mostly in the file structure, so you probably won't even notice a difference. I've also added a few graphs to the solar data page, just to make it look a bit nicer.

In other news, I've been taking the CW Academy Basic course since the beginning of May, which means that at this point we are over half–way through. It's been a lot of fun, and very challenging. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to study as much as I'd like, too many other things going on, but I can take what I've learned and work on it when I have more time. Hopefully over the summer.

Speaking of CW, I've added a CW section to the web site. I really enjoy operating CW, in fact I don't really do much other operating anymore, though i do the occasional SSB and, even more rearely, FT8. I plan to expand the CW section more as time permits.

God willing and the creek don't rise, as the saying goes, I'll be participating in this year's ARRL Field Day with the Hualapai Amateur Radio Club here in Kingman. I volunteered to be the Safety Officer this year.

Additionally, this year marks the first year that the club will be using electronic logs for Field Day. One of our members purchased the Field Day logging software from N3FJP, and I have it installed on the club's computer. I also purchased the software and installed it on my logging laptop. I have them configured to share the log database, so no need to consolidate the logs.

Welcome to my Shack on the Web

Welcome to my little corner of the web. I've designed this site as a repository of various bits of ham radio related information that I have aquired, content I have generated, simple programs that I have written (all web-based), links, etc. Pretty much whatever I find useful and/or interesting concerning ham radio.

My main interests in Ham Radio include, but are certainly not limited to, antennas, propagation and DX. The plan is to provide a little bit of everything, and a whole lot of some things. You can find out more about me over on my 'About Me' page (go figure :-)). Other than that, the menu bar at the top of each page will help you to navigate around the site, and, hopefully, find something that peaks your interest.

So, come on in, take a look around. I hope you find it useful and/or interesting.
