Your Webmaster

Mike Suhar, W8RKO


Well at least the human webmaster. You were introduced the canine webmaster Jake on the home page.

I obtained my ham radio license in 1970 at the age of 13. Overall I think ham radio has guided me into adulthood as it influenced my choice of college study. It is unfortunate that teenagers today don't even know what ham radio is or that it even exists. If they have heard of it they think of it as old technology that went out with black and white televisions. I think they would be surprised to find all the modern technology that exists in amateur radio today.

I graduated with a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Dayton in 1979. Latter picked up a masters in Engineering Management. I work for LexisNexis supporting the internal computer systems that employees need to do their job. Prior to LexisNexis I worked for the Dayton Power and Light company in telecommunications. There I provided engineering for the two-way radio system and the 6-GHz microwave system. That was a lot of fun, but I found better opportunities in the computer/data business.

I am a private pilot but have not flown in a few years. I use to fly with the Dayton Pilots Club (see link page for their current URL). I started flying in 1976.

My interests center around amateur radio, electronic design, computers, and flying. As with most of us, I wish I had more time to purse those activities.

I hope you find something useful on the site. I will try to add content as time goes on. Most of the content will be my experimenting on the work bench. Basically, as I call it, "experiments in nothing".
