Greetings from Mike, KQ9P! I first held a Novice ticket in 1971, but then drifted away from amateur radio for over four decades. I got the bug again and passed my exams in 2013. I am interested in QRP, stealth (of necessity), satellites, digital modes, emergency communications, homebrewing, mesh networking, microwave, SDR, and pretty much everything else. On the rare occasions that I have time for DXing, you’ll mostly hear me hanging out on 40, 20, and 15m in the digital mode hotspots.
I am a member of ARES/RACES® of Albemarle County, VA (https://www.aresvaalb.org) and an ARRL VE (https://www.arrl.org/volunteer-examiners).
To pay the bills for all this amateur radio activity I run my own IT consulting outfit here in Charlottesville. For more information go to Goozbazi LLC (https://www.goozbazi.com).
