Active on all bands 160 thru 70 cm, plus experimental activity on higher bands. Early adopter of packet radio in the early/mid 80's, One of several stations given an STA in the 80's to operate unattended HF packet stations prior to the change in rules. Active since 1963 with a small hiatus in the late 60's early 70's. W9BSO was a Club Station operated by Boy Scout Troop 61 in Milwaukee Wisconsin and was the instrumental impetus to become a ham.

Station comprised of Elecraft K2/100 (3075) with all the options including DSP filtering and KAT100 autotuner. I use HamRadioDeluxe for rig control, an excellent program for almost all Ham Rigs. I also operate remotely using this program and Skype over the internet from WiFi hotspots so you may find me on-air almost anytime. You can find it at http://forums.ham-radio.ch (which I am an administrator of the site). For Portable operation I use a Elecraft KX1 (57) with the 30 meter and ATU options (great little rig to go anywhere). KT34B tribander at 52 feet, shortened DX sloper for 30 thru 160 meters.
