Biography

I'm a Mechanical Engineering/Wireless Engineering dual major student at Auburn University- although I think I've learned more practical knowledge in my years of experience with Ham Radio than any Wireless Engineering class has ever taught me.

Most of my free time is spent designing hardware, circuits, writing code for AVR8/Arm Cortex M microcontrollers (C++/Assembly), or working on mechanical projects (high performance race motorcycle engines, around 200BHP per liter of displacement and a whopping 15,000+ RPM redline).

My father has been very active in the Amateur Radio community since I was young, and I spent much of my young life at tower sites/repeater locations. I taught myself how to work on/repair all kinds of equipment growing up. When I'm not in class at Auburn, I'm often times climbing towers to service carrier-class microwave links for local WISPs (Wireless Internet Service Providers). Most of the links I work with are 30+ miles, on anywhere from 3.65GHz to 25GHz.

I have spent a lot of time working with ATV, and 2m/70cm voice/packet. Before NTSC Broadcast TV was shut down, I put a lot of effort into developing hardware and software to allow for ATSC digital ATV transmission. My hard work paid off as I became one of the first amateur operators in the world to successfully encode, transmit, recieve, and decode an ATSC 720p HD video/audio signal on 427.25 (Cable channel 58).
