Alfonso Faustino: Kevin D. Wong’s Film: The Pilgrimage

After my successful run of acting in Yellow Face, I hit a slump in my acting career.  I was getting auditions; but, I wasn’t booking; and, even those parts weren’t really anything that interested me — same old casting roles: business man, lawyer, doctor, or politician.  So, I prayed to the Trinity.  I asked Him to…

Alfonso Faustino: New Head-shot Photographer For Actors: Zanfer Ali

I always like giving new businesses a try.  Starting a new business is always difficult; so, when a new business comes my way, introducing its services to me, I will evaluate it; and, if it falls into the stuff I need to get done, and it provides good quality and customer support, why not? I’m…

Alfonso Faustino: CARLA HAM Comm Network (K6ASF)

I really enjoy using the CARLA HAM Comm Network.  It is primarily a platform for public events, like the Bay-to-Breakers, and an emergency and civil catastrophe communications channel. Here is the way I use CARLA: I program all of the repeaters’ (AKA: Systems) frequencies, PL Link, and Local PL into my transceivers; CARLA labels its repeaters…

Alfonso Faustino: Programming Transceivers (K6ASF)

Well, today, Thursday, 6-April-2017, @ 1150 Hours PDT, is gloomy and wet; so, my Diamond X-50 antenna coax is all coiled up and inactive until the rain passes. A rain storm is expected to hit San Francisco this evening, which means I will be doing my HAM operations indoors rather than being outside of my…

Alfonso Faustino: HAM Operators Contact (K6ASF)

Since getting my license on March 2017, I found that I really enjoy the CARLA Communications Network; I enjoy the network, and I find it to be a vital communications resource in emergency and civil catastrophe situations.  I donated funds to help keep the network maintained. I mainly monitor System 2; but, throughout the day,…

Alfonso Faustino: Eagle’s Nest: Top Of Nob Hill (K6ASF)

I always wonder about the locations of the operators with whom I meet on various frequencies; hence, I created this BLOG to show you the location from which I transmit and receive. I affectionately call my station location: Eagle’s Nest, which is located in an area in San Francisco, which I personally call, Top Of…

Alfonso Faustino: HAM Net Control Meetings (K6ASF)

I want to contribute my skills, training, and education to the neighborhood; hence, I have been attending HAM Net Control Meetings in San Francisco and Oakland. Every Monday at 2000 Hours PST/PDT the San Francisco Radio Club has its Net Control on repeater, W6PW (2 meters (VHF)). Every Tuesday afternoon at 1200 Hours PST/PDT, I…

Alfonso Faustino: HAM Radio Outlet: Oakland, CA (K6ASF)

Nick at HAM Radio Outlet in Oakland, California was awesome.  He paired me up with the HAM equipment that match my commitment-phobic style.
