I am an Extra class amateur radio operator in Kearney, Nebraska.
I have recently passed my General and Amateur Extra exams in late 2020. My primary HF antenna is my home-built Off-Center Fed Dipole, good from 80m up to around 10m. I am a new dad, so my radio time is limited, but I hope to try out as many things in radio as I possibly can! I enjoy digital modes, phone, and I'm working on learning morse code! My goal with this hobby is to try to sample as much of it as I can, trying as many things as possible before settling so that I know what all is out there!
You can learn more about me and what I get up to outside of amateur radio, and see my other projects at my personal website!
I live in Kearney, Nebraska, a community of about 30,000 people, located along the Platte River in Buffalo County. I moved here after getting married in 2019, so I'm relatively new to the community, but my wife is a Kearney native. Originally, I grew up about an hour away in Aurora, just east of Grand Island.
I am an active member of the Midway Amateur Radio Club (W0KY) here in Kearney. I manage the club's web presence and also help manage the local D-STAR repeater and gateway (KD0PBW). I am also an ARRL accredited VE, ARES member and certified Skywarn Spotter. In addition to MARC, I am also active in the Amateur Radio Association of Nebraska (W0WWV) based out of Hastings, as well as other amateur activities in the tri-cities region.
