Recently got back into the hobby as AF6TC after a long hiatus, and am rediscovering the all the fun I had with the hobby. I was originally licensed back in the late 70's at about the age of 13. I was active until I went off to college and made my hobby my career. Radio is still my career (RF Engineering) but now I am back into the hobby with a new call sign after I let my old one expire. The technical part of the ham test was a lot easier this time around than as an 13 year old kid hi hi.
After graduating college with an BSEE in Electrical Engineering I went to work for a former ham radio manufacturer in Oceanside California. Talk about a dream job!! Since then its all been very fun and looking forward to seeing you on the HF bands which were always my favorite.
I like to work 40 Meters in the mornings on the weekends (10:00 ~16:00 UTC).
