I have been interested in amateur radio since I was a teenager and have been licensed for 39 years. My main interests in amateur radio are chasing DX and learning about new technology, modes and antennas.
Volunteer Examiner since 1984 with over 199 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 32 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.
