A few things:
  1. Internet service here is spotty and intermittent until the (lack of) day job situation improves.   If you know of anyone, or if your company is looking to hire an RF/electronic technician in the Rocky Mountain region with 30 years of experience in a wide variety of fields, I'd appreciate it if you send me out an email.  Would prefer a small->medium company that knows the value of a good technological generalist, but beggars can't be choosers.
  2. Issue #3, nominally March/April 2016, is behind schedule.  It should be out in a couple weeks.
  3. The radio book is now out of print.  Working on the getting the third edition, titled Down-Grid Communications, out as soon as I can finish it.
  4. Next workshop is in Dubois, Wyoming on August 6-7, 2016.  See https://sites.google.com/site/sparks31commo/home/upcoming-seminars for more details.  Depending on how the day job situation works out this could be the last one, especially if the new employer requires me to work weekends.
  5. For the time being, I'm available for out of state travel to conduct a workshop for 1-2 days.  The rate is $1000/day plus travel expenses.  Again, I don't know how long I'll be able to do this, especially if the new job requires weekend work.


  1. The Applachain Redoubt will welcome you with open arms...

    A close friend just returned from a two year stint, intended to be permanent, in Wyoming. He had zero intentions of coming back to Applachia, but...shit happens.

  3. Might sound strange, but pray for another Middle East oil embargo.
    Drive oil prices up worldwide, including all of the oil fracked in Wyoming, Colorado, the Dakotas.
    And upstate NY and Penna, if you're into that sort of thing.
