Welcome to my web site!
I have been an Amateur Radio operator since 1971 (WNØFEW). I
upgraded to Advanced in 1972 (WBØFEW) and Extra in 2000 (AE5PL). I operate
on HF, VHF, and UHF at home and I operate VHF/UHF when I am mobile.
I am active in APRS® and am the author of
javAPRSSrvr, the primary APRS-IS
server software. I own and maintain
javAPRS, a Java applet for
displaying APRS stations from within your browser.
I am active in D-STAR® communications. I am the author of
the D-PRS™ (D-STAR®/APRS®)
translation specification. I offer D-PRS support programs,
DPRS Interface and
javAPRSSrvr. I am the
author of DStarMonitor
which is used by D-STAR®
repeater sysops to record activities on their D-STAR®
repeater systems. I am the author of
DStarQuery which can be
used with DPRS Interface or javAPRSSrvr to give people a generic query
capability via the DV low speed data channel. If you want to know how to configure
your D-STAR® radio for D-PRS™,
With all this digital stuff, I still enjoy the occasional ragchew (you can
find me on 160 meters quite often) and working DX
(301 DXCC on 20m SSB). I even pound the ol' CW key every once and a while.
See you on the air...
