Welcome

Jon KK6GXG here, It should be fairly obvious this site is maintained by someone very interested in Amateur Radio. What may not be completely obvious is how to find certain key parts of this site.

If you are here to find out about getting your “Ham Radio” license take a look at my start with the Get Your Ham License page.

If you are looking for my EC-001 Introduction to Emergency Communications class you will find information on the EmComm Classes page.

I have rolled a couple of other older blogs into this one, see “End of an Era” as an example, so I am in the process of creating special categories for those blogs and will be assigning posts to those categories for better topical flow and listing them in the left sidebar. This will take some time to complete, but it will happen. After all, winter is coming. 😉

While I am a frequent poster on Instagram with many of my projects and subject-specific work, I have not been a very consistent blogger. I am going to work on this. Keep checking back for site updates, there are lots of things in development right now.

Keeping the site current. I have been adding an Updated dd m yyyy notation at the bottom of pages and in some cases directly under date sensitive information in an attempt to keep the site up to date.

During the process of reviewing and categorizing old posts and blogs I am also going adding commentary to some old posts where my opinions have changed or I was just flat out wrong. I am not “revising” or removing these posts, lets face it, the internet is forever, but our opinions and beliefs change and evolve over time. Rather than ignore or hide those things, I am embracing them as my own, current or not, correct or not. This is also a very slow process. I have nearly 300 posts spanning over a decade, I have changed a lot in that time. I think its worth noting where I have been, where I am, and where I am going.

The blog part of this site is a “me” thing, a place to express myself and my interests. I open it to those who are interested. The pages portion of the site, the menus at the top of pages, this is the public part where I share my experience and knowledge in certain areas, mainly amateur radio. All of the site is a work in progress, as am I. I hope you enjoy your time on this site and find some truth on the pages here in.
