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.
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.
