Station Snapshot – K2ACK
Welcome to another edition of the Station Snapshot. This edition comes to us from Alan Hawrylyshen, K2ACK, of Santa Cruz, CA. Alan is also licensed as M0WTH and shares the following station information. Among his radios, Alan counts a Kenwood TM-D710A for U/V FM only, a Kenwood TH-D72a also for U/V FM only, an Elecraft K3/100 for home use, and an Elecraft KX3+KXPA100 for portable use. Among the software Alan enjoys using is the latest version of Fldigi, CocoaNEC for antenna modeling, SkookumLogger for his contest logging and RUMlog for regular logging. Alan also writes “that as a professional computer scientist – I’m always taken aback by how primitive the state of software and open source really is in amateur radio. Perhaps when I have more time to devote to this, I can contribute some best practices and advice to the community – while practicing what I preach.”
The amateur radio hobby can always use new developers and I look forward to seeing Alan’s contributions to the community in the future! Thank you, Alan, for you sharing your Station Snapshot with MacHamRadio.
