A radio amateur since 1983, Nate seeks to give a bit back to the hobby through being a volunteer examiner, being active in the Marshall County Amateur Radio Club, contributing to and assisting in the administration of the Hamlib project, and being involved with a few other amateur radio related software projects (see the GitHub link above).  He also enjoys operating various amateur radio contests (radiosport) including the Kansas QSO Party, ARRL Field Day, ARRL Sweepstakes, ARRL 160m contest, and others.  Other interests do capture his fancy including three two 1979 Kawasaki motorcycles.

And, yes, those sunflowers are from our farm back when we raised them.
