About Robert Cieszenski

ND7J - Bob has been a self employed photographer for 40 years, shooting NASCAR and equestrian events through out the Southeastern USA. I travel on weekends, and work from my Home Office / Ham Shack during the week. Along with Photography, I am also a Web and Graphics Designer. I hold a 100 Ton Masters Captains License w/ Sail Endorsement. I have logged well over 30,000 Nautical miles on all of the Great Lakes as well as the Atlantic, Pacific Oceans and the Gulf Of Mexico. In Addition, I have traveled the Intercoastal water way from end to end, and have moved yachts through the Great Lakes to the Florida Coast, as well as the Gulf Coast of Florida via the Mississippi River.
I was first licensed in March of 2013 as a "Tech" It was my intention to get a Tech license only, so I could operate my first radio, a Beofang HT. It only took a short time for me to advance into the HF and DX areas of Ham Radio. I took my General test in August of 2013 and passed, and soon after I become extra class, after passing the Test in May of 2014. I am currently interested in Contesting and DX mainly, however I do do many things in Ham Radio. I have 298 Countries contacted with 293 confirmed in LoTW. I am active mainly in SSB, however I have recently started learning CW, and have become active in the digital areas as well, mainly RTTY. I now have 5 Band DXCC. I have received my Challenge Plaque after hitting 1000 Challenge Points.
