Donations & Support

General Information

Amateur Radio has played a major role in my life since I was 12 years old. It has brought great pleasure and has afforded me many opportunities to learn and seek new challenges. In return, I try to contribute to the Amateur Radio hobby in ways that support positive growth and creative thinking. I support causes related to Ham Radio Organizations (i.e. ARRL, CQ Contest, etc.), rare DX-Peditions, Contesting and Youth Development. I love to see creative thinking with youth, the development of systems, software and hardware and political causes that further advance our hobby.
