I was first licensed in April, 1962 at the age of 15. I built my novice transmitter from parts recovered from an old Emerson TV set. I enjoy Dxing, VHF/UHF, building my own gear, and collecting antique radios. I've 150 Hallicrafter radios ... almost all in working condition (hard to keep that many running all the time!!). I've, also, a few old Johnson's, some Nationals and some Collins gear ("S" line and Gold Dust Twins). I am a past president of the Keystone VHF club in York, Pa(W3HZU). I was member of the York Hamfest committee and a past technical advisor for the York Vocational/Technical School.
I retired from ATT in 1998 and after a few years in network consulting, I started a second occupation. I am presently working as a manager in the network engineering group for a large government GSE. I love my job ... I'll probably work 'till I'm 70!!
My original location was York, Pa, where I stayed until 1989. I moved to Frederick, Md to follow my job with ATT. I stayed in Frederick 11 years, then moved to WV early in 2005. I'm just getting my station on the air. I'm a VE examiner associated with the Laurel, Md organization. I've individually elmered over a dozen hams, including a fellow who I needed to teach advanced arithmatic and algebra (he finally made it to advanced)!! I have taught a number of licensing classes while I lived in York, Pa. I'm listed on the Elecraft website as a kit builder for disabled hams.
I love this hobby. Because of what I have learned in my persuit of Amateur Radio, I have enjoyed a very pleasant life in the field of electronic communications. Along the way I have attempted to put a little something back into the hobby.
