I was first licensed in 1959 at the age of 15. My first station consisted of a WW II surplus National HRO-M receiver and a home brew 35 Watt crystal controlled transmitter. The transmitter functioned only on 80 meters CW and my antenna was an 80m dipole. I received my General Class License in 1960. Subsequently, I upgraded my transmitter to a surplus ARC-5 and then a Heathkit DX-20 with homebrew VFO. Since then I’ve had many equipment changes. I received my Extra Class license in 1983.
My interest in Amateur Radio led me to a career in electrical engineering. I graduated with a BSEE degree from the Newark College of Engineering in 1967 and an MSEE degree from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn in 1971. I worked in the space systems industry for 37 years holding executive positions in engineering and program management before retiring in 2004.
Today, I live on Seven Mile Island (IOTA NA-111) in the borough of Avalon, New Jersey. I operate mostly CW on all bands from 80m to 6m. I enjoy working DX, contesting and DXpeditions. My station consists of an Elecraft K3 and an AL-80B modified for QSK operation. Lot sizes on the island are small. However, I managed to erect two wire dipoles in parallel using a 10.1 MHz resonator on the 80m leg for operation on 80/40/30/15m. In addition, I have a home brew beam with single feed mounted on a Glenn Martin roof tower for operation on 20/17/15/12/10/6m.
