Welcome to Dave Casler’s site and blog!
I like to share information and that's what this site is for. I love living in Southwestern Colorado in the San Juan Mountains, part of the Rocky Mountain range. I enjoy motorcycling, both street and dirt, so I keep GPS tracks of my travels to share along with photographs. Oh, the wildflowers aren't bad either!

My callsign, KEØOG, is an example of a call in the tenth call area, with the 10 being represented by a 0 (zero). The idea of 0 for 10 is an old one, going back to the old Stroger telephone … Continue reading

Skybeam is still broken. Yesterday I was given the same status I’ve been given for over a month: their best network engineers were working on the problem. I keep asking how I can escalate this so something actually gets done, … Continue reading
