Ham Member Lookups: 5517


My radio curiousity started in the late 50's while making crystal radios under the guidance of my father and continued throughout my school years by tinkering with old radios. Having earned an Associate Degree in Electronics at Harrisburg Area Community College I was sure that I would continue on the path of radio repair at least as a hobby interest. My career took a slightly different direction into computer repair and the time that I spent on radio projects was mainly relegated to repairing what I owned that had failed, plus the occaisional assembly of a Heathkit product. Our youngest children finished high school in 1996 allowing my wife and I more time to ourselves so I restarted my hobby interest in antique radio. I became a member of The Antique Wireless Association and pursue that interest casually. Many of my peer radio hobbiests are accomplished engineers, writers, technicians, and Hams which rekindled a desire within me to enter the Ham family and did so during early fall of 2002 by passing the Technician and General elements to become KB3IOR. In March 2003 I passed the code element allowing my advancement to General and decided at that time to obtain the vanity callsign, K3TVC. I upgraded to Extra on July 3, 2005.

In May 2004 I took advantage of an opportunity to tour the ARRL Headquarters and W1AW which was an enjoyable and interesting experience that I recommend to all.

73, Tom

p.s. My brother Bob, KB3QAJ, advanced to Extra on January 16, 2010. On March 11, 2010 I accompanied my brother on his first trip to the ARRL headquaters and station W1AW sponsored by his club, the Warminster Amateur Radio Club, Warminster PA . Bob, KB3QAJ is on the right and I, K3TVC am on the left.
