Software Coordinator Introduction: Radios, Analog Media, and Social Anxiety

Hello everyone, my name is Christopher Stevens and I am the newly minted Software Coordinator as of Spring 2020! I am looking forward to working to make our electronic resources more useful for everyone. As Software Coordinator I have a few goals for this semester:

  • Make a better resource for all members
  • Update our infrastructure to no longer need python2
  • Get feedback from the house about what you want Cloyne to host

I’d also like to give a personal introduction. One of the things I do in my free time is amateur radio, for which I am also trying to put together a rig for the house. My callsign is KN6AYU, and I also try to participate in two repeater nets, one M-F at 9am and another Wednesday at 7pm. I’ll also be in EE 198: Hand on Ham Radio.

Despite being the software coordinator I also like messing around with analog media. I own two film cameras, a КИЕВ-6C and Minolta XD11.

КИЕВ-6C Medium Format Camera
Minolta XD11 35mm Camera

I also have a hi-fi system, with a record player, and a reel-to-reel tape machine, that both sound quite good! (Stop by E2GH if you want to listen!)

One of the things I love about Cloyne is the ability to talk about my issues and have people be very understanding about them. I have recently been diagnosed with social anxiety, but have been struggling with it for a while. If I ever look like I’m staring at you it’s probably because I would like to say hello but don’t know you very well. I’m trying to get better, but it is a long process so I ask for some of your patience. Always feel free to say hello though! I like making new friends.

Thanks for reading, and feel free to contact me at
