I'm Bryan Fields, W9CR and have been an active ham since 1995.
I've been somewhat involved with Allstarlink since 2005 when I got some of the first PCI Radio cards from Jim Dixon and Steve Rodgers. Back then it was app_rpt and we started the first mailing list for it on our list server at Illiana.net.
Currently I'm involved with the infrastructure/IT needs to keep ASL online and working. I enjoy developing interface circuits for surplus base station equipment, and have made some extensive works around the Motoroal Quantar and Spectra Engineering MX800.
I'm also the only non-callsign user. I really should change this, but this was the first test account I made.
I was sad to hear of Jim Dixon's passing in late 2016, but I do know he would be happy ASL is living on.
