current antenna system.
my name is Mark, welcome to my website!
hold an Extra class Ham Radio operator's license, and if you haven't guessed
it yet, my callsign is N9XK. Why ham radio you ask? Well, ever since I
was a kid I was always fascinated at how information (voice/data) travels
through the sky and is heard or used by someone else in a different location.
There is so much to learn about radio, that perhaps one will never explore
every facet of the "radio art" in a lifetime. Amateur radio is a good hobby
to explore those different "facets" of radio communication, as well as
talk to others that have the same interests. My web page is here to share
information with other hams or those interested in becoming FCC licensed
Amateur Radio Operators. If you've come here after a QSO, you can see a
photo of my "shack" and see a couple of my projects, as well as links to
other ham related websites. My wife Debbie is also a ham, she has a Technician
class license and her callsign is K4DJS.

My XYL, K4DJS
will be in charge of the content here, and as the name implies we'll have
photos of our activities and family, etc. This area will change from time
to time. It is currently under construction.
