Welcome to KC7GR's Page of Radio-Related Widgets!

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING E-MAILING ME: Blue Feather's mail servers, where my accounts are based, are configured with strong spam-filtering measures. These include (but may not be limited to) a local blacklist of spam sources and open relays, and the blacklists at Osirusoft.com.

Although I've made EVERY effort to let legitimate E-mail through the filters, I can't rule out the possibility that said legitimate traffic may be blocked, possibly due to being sent through an open mail relay or via an ISP that is known to be a spam source.

IF YOU TRY TO MAIL ME, AND IT BOUNCES, please use this backup address. (In human-readable terms, it's kc7gr [a-t] qsl dot net.

DON'T PANIC if, when you place your mouse cursor over one of the 'mailto' links, you get what looks like a whole string of gibberish characters. This is merely another spam-proofing measure to prevent web 'spiders' from harvesting any of our addresses. What you're seeing is the actual address rendered in raw hexadecimal code. Trust me: It will resolve properly in your E-mail program.

What you'll find here...

A whole slew of different things! I've been an active hamateur radio op since December of 1977. In fact, I'll probably be joining QCWA (the Quarter-Century Wireless Association) around the beginning of 2003. Anyway, as you might imagine, I grew up during a time when tinkering was The Way of the Ham, and I still remain a tinkerer to this day.

Some of my favorite pastimes include modifying commercial radio gear for amateur use (a pastime which I went and turned into a side business), designing and building my own stuff, kit building, and restoring retired test equipment.

In fact, where electronics is concerned, I've done a little of everything that the field has to offer (except for government classified stuff), from fixing Teletype machines to aligning microwave networks and beyond.

The links in this table will take you to the various sections of my site. I don't use cookies, javascript, Flash, or any of the other unnecessary crap that so many web designers seem to think is vital, so enjoy the quick load times and text-friendly pages. Any graphics I use will usually have meta-tags for the benefit of text-to-speech software such as Jaws.
