Welcome to Mystic Lake Software. This homepage is a portal to my various activities as listed on the sidebar. I don't go into many details on this page since that would only repeat the information on the more detailed pages. 

The current activity - I intermittently rotate through which is my main focus - is robotics, specifically an analysis and discussion of the NASA Sample Return Robot Centennial Challenge.

Ham Radio is a continuing activity, especially communications for incidents. Incidents may include public service events or emergencies. I have a separate blog for those activities.
