This web site is just my space on the web, feel free to look around. If you’re interested in a solution for antenna restrictions you should check out my indoor hf stealth antenna page. It has details on how I have been able to log over 1400 QSO’s in 14 months with nothing more than an indoor wire loop and about 75 watts. It is possible to get your DXCC award living with antenna restrictions. For a look at what I do on VHF visit my indoor vhf delta loop antenna page.

My Other Hobby
As an amateur radio operator I dabble in many technical fields. Web design is another hobby of mine that started when the radio club that I was a member of needed a web site. I worked for a time at an eCommerce web design company during the Dot Com boom and still do design work to this day.
Other web sites that I have created:
- www.tgcdesign.com - is another domain that I own. When I registered that domain, it’s main focus was to promote my design services. Now I offer tips on web design, hosting, and free Word Press / Genesis templates.
- www.speedxhosting.com - is my web hosting service. If you’re interested in starting your own web site why not see what I have to offer.
- www.home-automation-ideas.com - is a new project that I have started that features ideas for DIY home automation ideas and products. Learn how you can use Insteon to automate your home.
I’ve now started focusing on WordPress development and develop Child Themes for the Genesis Framework. If you’re interested in starting your own website or need to create or update your clubs website please contact me, I’d love to help.
