N0ARY is the ham radio call for Bob Arasmith. I became a ham back in 1979 in the mid-west, thus the zero in the call. But since 1983 I have lived in Sunnyvale, CA. I have never changed my call because it is so easy to hear a zero in six land. For years I tried to get my extra ticket (ace the written, fail the code, wait a year, repeat). Then finally in 2007 after they removed the code... extra.
During my non-ham hours work for Crew Software, Inc. where I develop web-based applications to automate business processes. I am also co-owner in a wireless ISP, Gatespeed Broadband, where I get to play with RF and call it work.
In 1990 I got heavy into packet radio and wrote a BBS that used an innovative natural language parser for interacting with the user. It also functioned as a gateway to the Internet. The BBS was written targeting a Sun workstation running SunOS 4.x. Many others have been involved with it since it's creation back in 1990. I stopped actively supporting the BBS code around 1995 but you can still pick up the source here is you want to play with it.
