Hello and welcome to the new AB1DQ blog, I hope you find this site informative, inspiring and fun.
My name is James M. Surprenant and AB1DQ is my amateur radio call sign. I hold an Amateur Extra Class license and earned my first ticket as KB1IAR in 2002.
Although I came to ham radio later in life, I have always been fascinated with radio and electronics ever since I was a child ‘wasting time’ at my grandfather’s workbench.
My intent for this new blog is that it should be a place for me to share ideas of personal interest and projects that are currently on my workbench.
This is a personal site and like most persons, I’m not one dimensional. I have many personal interests including, but not limited to, photography, spirituality, cigars, whisky, baseball, poetry and music. Thus not all of the content here will be related to electronics and radio. I ask that all visitors here consume the content I share with an open mind, take what they need and leave the rest.
So, thank you VERY much for visiting – please drop me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you think.
