Glad you stopped in to visit the N9AMI website. Here you will find information pertaining to John and his activities including Aviation, Amateur Radio, Guns, Gold Mining and Treasure Hunting.
I am spending a lot of my time in designing a few Aerial Photography unmanned vehicles. Some with the ability to do autonomous missions. It is a very hot topic right now in the world especially whats going on in the U.S. so you can decide if its for you or not. The technology that is out today is amazing and this is how I stay on the cutting edge of things. We predominantly use a Go Pro Hero 3, Nikon DSLR and multi-copters with an Adriano processor as the brains of the operation. But I am moving up to a much more robust platform for my fixed wing agriculture photographer. Watch the site for more to come in the future about this.
As for Amateur Radio operating well been there done that! I still enjoy it but it just isn't holding much of a candle to other activities in my life right now. I assume when I get old an crusty like most of the people on the air I will slow down and want to sit on the radio all day :-) But, for now its just something to do while I have a cup of coffee and am working in the shop. And of course if you know me when the weather is nice I don't like sitting around the house. I do enjoy the hobby but there is not much thrill there anymore.
