I’m a ham radio operator, callsign KEØOG, Amateur Extra Class. I’ve been a ham since 1975, so that’s 38 years and counting! I’m an active member of the Montrose Amateur Radio Club and am a member of the ARRL. I’ve published articles on using solar power for your ham station and on building a youth group as an auxiliary of a ham club. My station is capable of HF, 2-meters, and 440 MHz, and I’ve talked with hams all over the world. I’ve set up some pages on this site about ham radio and have created training videos for those wishing to get their Technician amateur radio license, and am well underway with the General license videos.
I’m also an avid motorcyclist. I obtained my eighth motorcycle in May, 2009, a Yamaha XT-250 “dual sport” (meaning street-legal) dirt bike. I spent the summers of 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 crawling all over the mountains around here (on legal trails) and have kept GPS tracks. You’ll find many, many posts on this site about where to go with two wheels.
I’ve got some other ideas for other subject-oriented pages too. And, I’ll be posting blog entries here and there.
