Hamming it up... and more
I enjoy communicating across the county, the state, the country and even the world using Amateur Radio (aka Ham Radio). My particular interests are in low power QRP operations and using Morse Code.
As I learn about the hobby I'm sharing what I discover in my blog. I hope you can find it informational and/or entertaining.
Please take a moment to rate this website on eHam.net since it helps other hams find it.

Life Beyond Ham radio...
Photography is one of my passions
And more importantly, my family and the faith that fuels my life
I encourage you to enjoy your brief life, and do your best for others, and most important of all have faith...
A word about faith
Whether we want to admit it or not, we all have "faith" in something. You may put your faith in a higher being or your leaders or yourself but as humans we have an innate need to have faith. Faith is the mental rock we cling to during our storms.
I've sought the foundation for my life in many places over the years but I have always returned to what I've read in the Bible.
That book, the bible is really a collection of books and letters in one place that when you approach it in earnest will show you your relationship to others, the world and your creator who loves you so much he would buy you back, with his own life.
It's not a self help book. It is a book about a relationship. A very special relationship.

Daily Audio Bible
I'm encouraged every day by listening to the bible read aloud at the DailyAudioBible. It is a community of people pursuing life in relationship with God. I heartily recommend a daily dose of the bible as a tonic for the soul.
