Hey everyone. My name’s Patrick, and this is my blog.
Alright, now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s get down to business. This is going to be where I post all of my amateur radio ramblings, reviews, repair logs, build logs, and general bullshit that I feel like posting on any given day. Now this isn’t going to be a dumping ground, but it is by no means going to be a professional website about the technicalities of operating amateur radios.
Speaking of which, let’s talk about that a little bit more. I’m currently licensed as a technician in good ol’ Indiana, USA. I was licensed in July of 2015 and have been found all over the 2m and 70cm bands, and even on the 6m bands from time to time.
I’m currently stuyding electrical engineering at Purdue University and am an active member of the oldest club at Purdue – W9YB. Along with my friends, we do all sorts of neat stuff with amateur radio. Our new DMR repeater has been one of the most successful projects we’ve worked on, and it is currently the most-used DMR repeater in the whole state. We also have a 2m and a 6m repeater which are both used quite often, and we’ve got plenty of vintage radios and test gear in the shack to please even the most veteran ham.
So stay tuned for more posts, and hopefully I’ll remember to put things out at a somewhat reasonable pace.
Thanks for watching!
