Hi. Thanks for stopping by my page. I go by "Jim" for radio as it is cw friendly.
Born and raised here in Oxford, NC, I watched my father, WA4MII(sk), build almost everything imaginable made by HeathKit. He was also an avid RV enthusiast and I had the privilege of erecting dipoles and ground planes in KOA camp grounds and state parks from here to Oregon, New Mexico and all points between. But I just did not get interested in the hobby at a young age.

I enlisted in the US Navy in October, 1989, attended boot camp and STG "A" school in San Diego, CA. My first sea duty was aboarb the USS Thomas C Hart, FF 1092 steaming out of Norfolk, VA. I joined the Crew of the Hart in November 1990, in the Red Sea.

I was sent to the reserves as part of President Clinton's reduction in force in 1993.
In Pharmacy school I was recruited for the US Navy Health Sciences Collegiate Program and commissioned in 1999 at the rank of Lieutenant. I was assigned as the Chief Pharmacist at the Naval Branch Medical Clinic in Key West, FL. In 2002, I transferred to the United States Pulic Health Service and moved back here to Oxford assigned to the Federal Medical Center in Butner, NC. I am still there, CDR, USPHS.

That's my story. I have two children. A son, Bruce, a daughter, Sissy. Been married 22 years to an angel named Wanda.

Got into Ham Radio in Feb, 2011. Enjoy CW dx, SKCC events, learning digital modes and building Elecraft kits.

Station consists of a K2, K3, p3, KPA500, OCF dipole, trap band vertcal, and a Mosley Mp 33.

Elmers: K4AVO, Pat; K3KO, Brian; KQ2P, Gary; KU4GW, Cliff (CW professor) and others along the way.

This photo bottom left is the charge controller fed by the panel.  The rest of the conections are Anderson Power DC connectors by Powerwerx.  The charge controller is connected to a power distribution center mid left in photo.  From there a 7.2 Ah external battery top left  for the K2.  Bottom center is a "USBbuddy" by Powerwerx 10-32VDC in 5VDC out feeding a 13.6 Ah dual USB port external lithium ion battery by TIRUX which is powering the iPad mini and external keyboard which is running Pignology's  HAM LOG.  Of course K2 top right.
