I have been interested in amateur radio since I was a teenager and have been licensed for 40 years. My main interests in amateur radio are chasing DX and learning about new technology, modes and antennas. I am active on the LEO satellites SO-50, FO-29, AO-73. Please support AMSAT for the future of the amateur radio satellites.
Volunteer Examiner since 1984 with over 211 test sessions coordinated.
After high school I joined the US Navy for six years and proudly served in the submarine service aboard the USS Robert E. Lee SSBN 601. During the period I was stationed at Pearl Harbor Naval Station in Hawaii I operated from the famous KH6SP station located on the submarine base.
After leaving the Navy I have been employed for the last 36 years in Public Safety Radio Communications as a technician and for the last 17 years as the manager for a local municipality's radio systems.
I enjoy the sport of cycling both as a fan and active rider. The completion of a century ride is a goal of road cyclists and I have had the thrill of riding several centuries. I have road, touring, mountain and recumbent bicycles. I have had the privilege of being part of the Tour of California as a road marshal on 2 occasions.
My latest interest has been photography which I have started to learn over the last couple of years.
