After 45 years in the defense industry around Los Angeles, I retired in 2009 and moved to the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains near the small town of Bishop California. This is the land of ranching, mining, trout fishing, geology, hiking and all things "outdoors." The view from my porch is a panorama of the mountains John Muir called "The Range of Light."


My first adventure in rural life has been starting an antenna farm! The crop is good so far: a 55' self supporting crank-up tower (with motor drive!) with a Force 12 element triband beam and a 45' utility pole with a full size G5RV. I hope to have a 160M inverted "L" up soon.


My ham "shack" is a refurbished office 20'X12' office trailer that gives me lots of room to tinker with electronics and get on the air with my new FT950.

I can be found on 15 and 75 meters most afternoons and evenings. I also monitor the local 2M 34/94 repeater and have a scanner running most of the time. After many years of largely VHF/UHF activity I am really getting back into HF operating. It sure is nice to have enough room to put up antennas and talk around the world. Watch out DX I'm on your trail! I am basically a rag chewer but I do enjoy the Field Day, California QSO Party, and SSB Sweepstakes contests. I working up my code speed to I can get in more CW QSO's. I like working DX if there are a few moments to chat along with the exchange. I guess that means I won't work too many "rare ones." If I'm not on the radio I am probably out trout fishing or off to a classical music concert with my wife Marilyn (W6MSO) As I tell my friends "being retired really is everything it's cracked up to be!"
