Welcome to my ham radio journal, a low-impact record of my continuing adventures in radio peppered with random thoughts about what has become for me, a lifetime hobby.

I’m Jeff Davis and KE9V is my amateur radio call sign. Licensed since 1977, I’ve enjoyed many facets of this unique hobby – from spark to space!

I’m a Life Member of the ARRL and a member of AMSAT-NA, AMSAT-UK, RAC, and TAPR.

I QSL 100% via LoTW. Sorry, I don’t use any other electronic service. If you want a postal QSL please send me yours. No SASE required but I only fiddle with postal mail a few times a year so please be patient. My contact information is good on QRZ.
