sticky Re: Welcome: Introduce yourself!
Dan, KB6NU, here. I'm the author of the KB6NU Ham Radio Blog and the No Nonsense amateur radio license study guides and have been teaching amateur radio license classes for nearly 20 years now. I am also Communications Manager for Amateur Radio | Digital Communications (ARDC), a private foundation that administers AMPRNet (also known as 44Net) and makes grants to worthy programs in amateur radio and digital communications.
On my blog, there are several posts that address how to get more young people into amateur radio. My post today, #hamradio needs something like the Arduino, is a case in point. I don't have the answers, but I do ask the questions. At any rate, I'm happy to join the group and to discuss these topics with you all.
As far as my other ham radio activities go, I like to build things and operate CW. I'm the author of the CW Geek's Guide to Having Fun with Morse Code and will be giving a talk on having fun with CW at Hamcation this coming February. I'm also a member of the CWops and the Long Island CW Club. If you ever hear me on the air, please give me a call.
73, Dan KB6NU
