The Art of Making a Contact By Radio

While "amateur" means "for love", many amateur radio operators approach the pastime and contributions of amateur radio with as much zeal and passion as their professional interests. It is more than a hobby. It's a world of continual discovery, knowledge, and friendships beyond compare. Lifetime friendships and knowledge that enhance careers, families, your community.

The menu on the left will take you to my regular web pages. The notes below capture recent activities and tell of upcoming events. You can also get news at the ARRL Pacific Section web page.

There's so much to write about amateur radio, and there's just not enough time to make all the web pages that I would like. Enjoy, and feel free to drop me an e-mail if you have any questions. -- Ron, KH6D
