About Me

Who Am I?

My name is Nathan and I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. I am a machinist and welder by trade but have studied computer science, marketing, web development and more. I generally have a thirst for knowledge and love to learn and tinker.

Why Amateur Radio?

There are many reasons:

  • It is a techical hobby
  • There is something for everyone! You can talk to people all over the world or in your own back yard, you can volunteer your time and expertise working with ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) or CFARS (Canadian Forces Affiliate Radio Service), you can learn morse code, you can try low power QRP gear and take it hiking or camping, you can explore one of the many digital modes, or you could check out IRLP, Echolink, Winklink or one of the many other aspects of the hobby.
  • I think the best part of the hobby is that it is for people of all ages and you get to meet some really incredible people as a result.

Where Did You Take Your Course?

I took my course in Lloydminster, AB. Canada. It was put on by the Sask Alta Radio Club and you can find information about their Basic & Advanced courses on their page for prospective hams.

How Long Have You Been Into Amateur Radio?

I have been interested in amateur radio, computers & electronics for a long time. But only recently did I sign up for a course put on by a local club and completely immersed myself in all things radio. I passed my Basic test with Honors on March 21, 2018.

This is my main information hub. nathankohlman.com is a central location for info on what projects I am working on that are not radio related, links to all my social profiles, and links to my photography pages.
