Hello, thanks for stopping by. Many moons ago in high school I got my novice ticket and shortly afterwards a tech (WA9WPQ). Soon college, grad schoolÂ and marriage came along and I went QRT for about 4 decades.Â 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.
Logs sent to eQSL, HRDLOG, and LOTW. I enjoy receiving paper QSL cards and always 100% return - no SASE required. Nothing like getting that little paper card in the mail to brighten the day.
My background includes computer science, software development, and executive management in the Financial Industry.Â Wrote threeÂ technology books - 2 of them for Microsoft - on .Net programming and technology.Â The 1st book on VB/Database won the 1999 Amazon.com best seller in catagory award.Â Each of theÂ three books was translated into 5 different foreign languages.Â (Carve out a year of your life for each - uggh). Also taught graduate level computer scienceÂ evenings for 10 yrs at a major university in Chicago's Loop after my main dayÂ job.Â Now I'm ready toÂ enjoy amateur radio.
The photo below is me and my two sons. My younger son (on the right) recently got married so we snapped his last free moments.
Thanks for reading and hope to speak with you soon.
