Summit, New York

Where it all started!

Get ready for an exciting story of Ray’s journey in the world of ham radio! In 2010, Ray stumbled upon a stunning piece of land on a secluded mountaintop in the Catskill Mountains. Little did he know, this discovery would change the course of his life forever. With passion and dedication, Ray built a world-class radio station on this site, and in just four short years, he achieved tremendous success, winning numerous radio contests and gaining recognition in the community.

But that’s not where the story ends. In 2013, Ray’s mountaintop station became the flagship station on the RHR network, launching him into a whole new realm of possibilities. With remote access capabilities, Ray could operate the station from anywhere in the world, opening up endless opportunities for him to connect with other radio enthusiasts and participate in exciting contests and events.

Although Ray no longer physically operates the station, his passion for the sport remains as strong as ever. Every now and then, he makes the journey up to the mountaintop to do some maintenance work and to enjoy a cold drink by the wood burning stove. It’s a place that holds a special place in his heart, and he’s grateful for every moment he’s spent there.
