TLDR: I'm a dad to a 3 year old and a foster parent to many kids over the years. I work in tech and spend as much time as I can outdoors. I'm a New Jersey resident, and love it, since 2001. I live in Long Valley, New Jersey (Hackettstown post office). I was born in the Bronx, New York and grew up in Rockland and Orange counties of New York.
I'm a first generation ham as both of my parents were totally deaf. My dad didn't let his deafness stop him from the pursuit of countless projects that were challenging and rewarding to complete. A Tektronix oscilloscope, a machinists toolbox, and lots of Mamiya Large Format and Nikon 35MM SLR equipment were part of my childhood. He allowed me to participate in his projects and I'm grateful for his generosity.
I got introduced to electronics through my dad who was an avid hobbyist. We spent countless hours building heathkit projects together throughout my childhood.
My base station is located at the home QTH located on the North face of Schooley's Mountain in Long Valley, NJ. The station consists of a Yaesu FTDX1200 [bought used] with AKG 240 Monitor Headset. I use an Alpha Delta DX-CC multi-band antenna (worth the $!) up about 35 feet in an inverted V.
My mobile rig is a Yaesu 857D and an LDG Z-100Plus AutoTuner inconspicuously mounted in a Toyota FJ-Cruiser. The antenna used is a Diamond K-400. The 857D served well as a base station but has been moved to it's rightful place in the FJ. I also really enjoy operating outdoors by participating in the Summits on the Air [SOTA] contest and NPOTA 2016 and take the 857 out on these activations.
My portable handie/talkie is a Kenwood TH-F6A with a Diamond HF Whip. This radio was bought used and works very well.

Note: Keep your bone-headed political commentary off the Amateur Service, and I'll do the same. My VFO knob is wobbly from all the spinning when I hear opinions from misguided to hateful on the airwaves. Always appreciate and show kindness and courtesy.
