My friends call me Gene. Hello and thank you for looking up my call sign and hope we are currently working on the ham radio.

My home is in Austin, Texas. Above is shown the ever-changing skyline near the shores of the Colorado River. Austin is called the Live Music Capital of the World. That is because it is home to some of the largest music events including South by Southwest (SXSW), Austin City Limits Music Festival (ACL), The Urban Music Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, the Pachange Festival and more. It's unofficial motto is Keep Austin Wierd, and it is in many, many ways. (hi hi)

I was originally licensed as WN5KPG but upgraded many years ago to Amateur Extra whereby my call was changed. I am very excited about ham radio and have many family members joining the ranks including Carolyn, AD5HP, my lovely XYL of over 25 years.

My interests include working ham radio satellites, the International Space Station (ISS), low power digital modes (lately JT65 and JT9), DX, State QSO Parties, ARRL Field Day, QRP to the Field, and HF mobile. My favorite operating modes are Morse CW and low bandwidth digital signaling.

I am a Life Member of the ARRL and volunteer in their VEC program for helping achieve greater number of amateur radio operators in the Central Texas area. I recently retired as a Systems Engineer from a radio communications technology company specializing in radio-geolocation and its applications. Professionally, I hold an MSEE degree from The Univesity of Texas at Austin, I am a Life Senior Member of the IEEE and a Licensed Professional Engineer in Texas (Retired).

In addition to ham radio, I am very excited about our 10 grand children (going on 11 in 2015!) and watching them grow. I love leisure boating on our beautiful Highland Lakes located in the Central Texas Hill Country. I am also active in tennis and, related to this, I volunteer with The Special Olympics Texas program by serving as a Certified Tennis Coach.
