I'm an systems engineer, with some focus on complex systems, signal processing and a bit of control systems. My current job title is "Senior Satellite Systems Engineer". I am also a hobby photographer, and fairly avid programmer. I am the programmer of the Android app Psychic Tester, and my newest app, Ham Finder. I am also the author of the blog, The Making of a Ham, and the photographer on PearsonArtPhoto.com.

@RussellSteen: I'll try and make it clearer, but I'm saying for a short outing, it might help, but for an extended stay, I would not recommend it. I've updated the conclusion to be better.
