Feld Hell Club

I’ve been active in amateur radio since 2001. In 2003, I upgraded to General Class, and to Extra Class in the Spring of 2004. I have several areas of interest in the hobby, including Dx’ing on 2 meters, 6 meters, and most HF bands. I also enjoy FM satellites, 6 meter AM, contesting, and slow-scan television. Outside of amateur radio, my interests include auto racing, which I’ve participated in as a driver and crew member since 1993, surfing, and classic car restoration. I’m currently studying at the University of Southern Maine. I work in the automotive field and in my spare time, I write fiction for publication,  and news stories for the local newspaper, The Gorham Times.

When I'm in the shack, I usually monitor the 146.655 W1NH (-100Hz) repeater, located on the summit of Mt. Washington, NH, and when mobile I monitor 147.540 SIMPLEX.

If you're in Southern Maine or Seacoast New Hampshire, check into the “Southern Maine 6 meter AM/PM” net (when active), on 50.400 AM on Thursdays, beginning at 8PM local time.

In the summer of 2010, I became a founding member of the Wireless Society of Southern Maine, which meets in the summer at Wassamki Springs Camprground, and Fall and Winter at the Gorham Recreation Department, in Gorham, Maine.
