Welcome to WA4KBD, where ham radio is a portal to high tech adventure, camaraderie,education, and the advancement of communication.

Exact station location:
29.679N  -82.357E  Alt 47m (157 feet)
Grid locator:  EL89tq

License class: Advanced
QSL via eQSL and LoTW; paper

Note: If your operating system is Windows and you are working time-sensitive digital modes like JT-65 and JT-9, I highly recommend NetTime  (www.timesynctool.com) to automatically sync your computer with online time standards. I have it set to synchronize my computer's clock every two hours. This program is extremely reliable under Windows 10 and operates silently in the background with absolutely no hassle.

      Like Sci-Fi?  Here's a link to my Kindle
       novel, 'Perimeters'.  Ham radio references
       are encoded here and there in the text,
       some obvious and some a lot more subtle.
       How many can you find?
