Zak Smith. Amateur Extra class radio operator in Fort Collins, Colorado and mobile around the country.
I studied electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison and graduated with an MSEE in 1998. Prior to that I finished a BSEE, with "Computer Engineering Option" and a second major (BA) in Computer Science in 1997. My area of specialization for my master's degree was computer architecture and operating systems with research in data-correlated branch predictors. For my undergrand, my secondary interest was electromagnetic waves and I did some extra work in the area of microwave emitters. My primary professional career has been spent in the CPU-design laboratories of Hewlett-Packard, Intel, and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD).
My interest in radios is for emergency and backup communications, and effective field or event communications.
HAM RADIO STUFFI have a pile of radio gear, including: Icom 706MKIIG, Yaesu VX8DR, FTM-350AR, FT-7900R, a bunch of Standard Horizon HX370S's, two Icom F-1721's.
