My name is Jerry Taylor, my amateur radio call sign is KD0BIK and I have been a licensed amateur radio (ham radio) operator since 2007. Besides having an interest in SOTA. I also actively blog about other amateur radio activities and also produce an amateur radio podcast called the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast. PARP will begin its 9th season in 2016.
My involvement with SOTA began only recently after I worked my first SOTA station. I began researching the program and living in Colorado I have plenty of summits to keep me busy for many years to come. To provide a better explanation into how and why I became interested in SOTA, please see my first blog entry titled An Introduction of Sorts.
