Hello, thanks for stopping by. Good to see you.

Many moons ago as a 16 yr old high school student I got my novice ticket then shortly upgraded to tech (WA9WPQ).  After building a Knight T-60 transmitter kit and rounding up a very used Knight R-100 reciever I finally had "The Ultimate Station."  I  somehow got the rock bound T-60 working (novices couldn't use a VFO)  and strung a home made diapole between the trees.

Suddenly a faint, fading signal from another novice in Pensicola, Florida replied to my cw CQ.  It worked! All the way from Florida to Chicago! Magical. I'm pretty sure you can relate.

Soon college, marriage, career, grad school, and family came along and I went QRT for 4 decades. My background is in Computer Science and includes executive management, teaching, and writing.

In December 2012 I rediscovered Amateur radio and am now exploring all of the relatively newer facets of the hobby (i.e., the digital stuff). 

I've been working with PSK31, JT65-HF, JT-9, APRS, EchoLink on Android, and CW as well as 2 meters / 440 in the Jeep - and have also been poking around ROS. I hope to contact you on many bands in many modes.

Logs sent to eQSL(AG), HRDLOG, and LOTW.  

Below is me and my two sons. My younger son (on the left) recently got married so we snapped his last free moments.

Thanks for reading and hope to speak with you soon.
