My Personal Site

Welcome to My Personal Site

I built this web app in 2007 with .NET and MSSQL technology, which was new at the time. Since then, I have kept pace by developing web and desktop apps to implement the latest versions of .NET, C#, and T-SQL, with programming frameworks like Microsoft’s WPF, WCF, and MVC5, while adopting HTML5, Bootstrap, jQuery, and much more. I am currently working with .NET Core API with Angular front end and deploying to Azure. This personal site, however, has been low priority. I may never upgrade it to something more modern. Just managing content is tough, but I will work on that from time to time. (This update is being made in June 2021.)

Ham Related

Ham Radio is more that a hobby. It's a way for people to contribute to society. Hams are characteristically motivated in this way. Technology is fascinating, but I really like associating with people like these.

IARU - 2008

Section Leader!

497 QSOs and 79 Multipliers was enough to take 1st place in the Michigan Section as a Single Operator, Morse Code only, Low Power station.

This was the only time I've ever worked a contest as myself. I've always worked under a club call. This year, for instance, I worked the IARU with a couple friends as W8ZHO. Together, we logged 547 QSOs on four bands, with SSB and CW. You can see more about that event by clicking on this link: IARU - 2009

Amateur Radio - Not

Of course, life extends beyond Amateur Radio
