Just a ham in San Antonio…

If you need to get in contact with me, please feel free to do so at:


I’m on 80-6m, 2m, 70cm, DStar, DMR and YSF.

Lately, I have been activating parks for Parks on the Air! It’s really simple and you can make contacts very easily. I recommend this for people similar to me that just really don’t like calling CQ – i’m not into ragchewing. With Parks on the Air, calling cq is very easy and most calling you back are quick. Parks on the Air “Hunters” are more often than not, really cool & laid back. QSO’s are easy and fun.

Parks on the Air also encourages most people to be able to set up and tear down gear quickly – it’s not just operating your radio – you need to practice setting stuff up and tearing down and also learn to troubleshoot quickly should something go wrong during the process.
