Greetings from AE3C / Rick in Pittsburgh! My interests in Amateur Radio are portable station setup, unusual operating locations, battery-only stations, and using unusual objects as antennas. I also have an avid interest in Emergency Communications, and presently serve as the Founder and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for RemComm, Inc., for whom I have developed several new digital modes and a radio-based e-mail/voice-mail system. I served for two years as a District Emergency Coordinator [DEC] for the Official Emergency Stations [OES] program in Western Pennsylvania. A frequent operating location is from aboard the kayak while paddling in the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio Rivers, which form the "Point" here in Pittsburgh.
