I hold a general class license, but operate mostly on 2M and 70cm from San Diego and Palm Desert, California using a Yaesu FT-897, Kenwood TM-281A mobile, Yaesu FT-60R handheld, and an AnyTone D878UV handheld. You can often find me off-roading and launching rockets in the SoCal deserts. My primary interest is using Raspberry Pis and SDRs to receive location and telemetry data from satellites, rockets, weather balloons, trains, planes, and automobiles. I operate satNOGS, FoxTelem, radiosonde, and APRS IGate stations at both locations.
