Hi. I'm Mike, KC8LPZ, and this is my little attempt to bring amateur radio further out of the 20th century. I've never been big on blogging (although I've followed a few), but a big part of that was that I just didn't see that anything I'd write would be any different or more important than what hundreds or thousands were writing. Somehow, I just didn't see many people clamoring to read about my run-of-the-mill day. However, this is a bit different than that, since it's entirely going to be aimed towards amateur radio things.
To quickly introduce myself - I'm KC8LPZ, and I've been licensed since January of 1999, although for most of that time I was essentially inactive. It turns out that when you go to college, you end up dropping some other time (and money) consuming activities and interests. But, Field Day 2009 caught my interest again when I went out to the MCRC's site, and here I am again.
So, despite having a license for over ten years, in many ways I'm still new to the field. I live above 50Mhz for the most part, mainly because I don't have any HF gear (yet, eventually) and I live in an apartment. Right now I just usually hang around the local repeaters (specifically the Wyandotte Repeater, 147.24+, located at Fort Street and Pennsylvania) and check into the MCRC's Tuesday night net, but I'm working on getting into working satellites as well.
As is implied by the club I'm active with and the repeater I just mentioned, I live in the Downriver area, just south of Detroit, Michigan.
