Welcome to my place on the web. I am located in the southeast part of Auburn,Washington, almost 10 miles east of Tacoma. My website combines my amateur radio activities as well as my interest in the weather.

About my station


I have been a licensed amateur tadio operator since 1976. I also hold a commercial FCC license. Most of my operating time is spent running QRP or low-power,usually with less than 5 watts of power.

My station consists of the following equipment:

Yaesu FT-847 HF/VHF Radio to a G5RV up 30 feet

Uniden BCD996P2 for monitoring Public Safety

Radio Shack Pro-160 for monitoring aircraft and other conventional systems

Yaesu FT-7800 VHF/UHF Radio


Weather Station


The weather station is a Acurite 5 in 1 that sends data every 30 seconds to my computer that runs the Weather Display program. It then sends updates to my website, Weather Underground, APRS and PWS weather.
