I'm one of the newbies on the list and thought I'd introduce myself. My
name is Brian Mileshosky, and I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I'm 21,
and first became licensed at 12.
I'm ready to take the Extra exam, and love HF, VHF/UHF, CW, QRP CW, QRPp
CW, APRS, packet, T-Hunting, satellites, and normal rag-chewing. T-Hunting
is a ton of fun for me, and I'm on the planning committee for the 2001 USA
Amateur Radio Direction Finding Championships, which take place this summer
in Albuquerque (we are looking for youth participants if you are
interested!) Many countries are sending teams to this event along with many
T-Hunters from around the US. I also enjoy hosting JOTA, as it is one of
the items on my Wood Badge ticket. I also author the Youth@...
column on the ARRL WebExtra website (their member's only area), where I
feature topics that are of interest to young Hams and potential young Hams.
I'm one of the old guys now (21), so I'm an ASM of Troop 41 in
Albuquerque. Got my Eagle in 1996 with two palms. I'm active in the OA as
past Lodge 66 Chief, Section W5A Secretary and Western Region National
Leadership Seminar trainer. I'm a Vigil-Honor Arrowman. I trained
leadership at the last NOAC and will be doing the same at the next one. I'm
also serving as staff at K2BSA this summer at the Jamboree. I'm also working
to build Venture Crew 296 in Albuquerque, which is an Amateur Radio-related
Crew, though all of the members moved away to college a year ago.
I look forward to the discussion on this list, as its great to see
people combining two loves -- Scouting and Amateur Radio. Please visit my
homepage where you can find out about my involvement in Amateur Radio at
