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).

Equipment Setup;

Main Radio Flex 5000A (Running on a Quad Core, Windows 7 64 Bit)

Backup Radios; Icom 756 Pro 2,746 Pro

Amplifier(Main);Alpha 87A(1500 Watts)
