First licensed as Technician in 1973 as WA4KVO. Upgraded to Advanced in 1978 (tested at FCC Field Office in Atlanta) and assigned current call sign KB5EZ. Upgraded to Extra in early 2000's after 15 years of inactivity. Wow, did the technology change while I wasn't paying attention!

Work for NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center as Space Environments Team Lead. Responsible for compatibility of NASA flight projects with the meteoroid/orbital debris, ionizing radiation, neutral thermosphere, and ionospheric plasma environments.

Ph.D. in Astronomy from New Mexico State University .

Current research interest is observing meteoroid impacts on the Moon. http://www.nasa.gov/centers/marshall/news/lunar/index.html

Ham interests are contests, DXing, meteor scatter, JT65, and portable/QRP/SOTA operations.

Currently over 500 band/mode/state confirmations in the W1AW portable centennial operations.

My contesting is casual, search and pounce, just for fun. Imagine my surprise when I started getting award certificates in the mail from ARRL. I was shocked and pleased!

   First Place Alabama Section for the 2012 Sweepstakes SSB contest, single operator, low power.

   First Place Alabama 2012 10m contest, single op, phone only, low power

   First Place Alabama Section 2012 IARU HF World Championship, single op, phone only, low power 

All that makes me want to try a little harder in other contests.  Of course if you are the only entry you have a good shot at winning :-)
