The purpose in creating this web site is to share information about projects I am pursuing, which might be of interest to other amateurs, photographers and enthusiasts. A considerable portion of the content is on Amateur Radio, but the Astronomy and Photography sections are being developed and expanded.

While I am relatively new to amateur radio, I am also active on related topics such as SWL, electronics experimentation, trying out SDR (software defined radio), and broadcast band DX using "crystal" sets. Other hobbies include photography and amateur astronomy (astrophotography). Please let me know if you have interest in or comments on any of these topics.
