My ham radio hobby

Post by Remingtonhill1 »


I have been interested in Radio communications since I was young, and even managed a Radio Shack back in the 90's. My interest in Radio has been rekindled recently (update: well now 7-years ago).

I'm interested in the mobile-aspect of the hobby as well as digital modes. You may also find me on 75-meters, especially the 3916 nets. Ham radio, and especially working HF/mobile HF is not plug-n-play by any stretch, and the effort, research, education, and experimentation required to make it work well and effeciently has been very educational. This hobby is challenging and has been fun and rewarding.

My latest video about Amplifier operation, and some detail about my (previous to a recent move) shack setup:
