I am located in Camarillo, California, in Ventura County, about 50 miles west of downtown Los Angeles, 9 miles from the Pacific Ocean. I am a civil litigation attorney, focusing primarily on defending healthcare and personal services providers when they get sued. Besides amateur radio, my other hobbies are flying and shooting. I have my private pilot license - instrument rating - and primarily fly Cessna 172s. I enjoy target shooting with rifles, pistols, and shotguns. Shooting sporting clays is my favorite.

I first got interested in ham radio and shortwave listening when I was a kid in the 70s. I found an antique shortwave radio at my uncle's house and was amazed that I could hear broadcasts from all over the world. I was bitten by the DX bug. Unfortunately, I could never get very good at Morse code, and I had no idea where to go to get a license. I finally got my Technician license in January, 2012 and upgraded to General in April, 2012.

My HF/VHF/UHF/D-Star rig is an Icom IC-7100 at 100 watts, LDG IT-100 Autotuner, and a 20 meter dipole up in my attic. CC&Rs prohibit an outdoor antenna, so this is the best I can do for now. (I have a HF back-up rig (IC-746Pro) and a VHF/UHF/D-star back-up rig (Icom AD-880H).)  I also have a few handhelds - a Kenwood TH-F6A and several Baofengs. I am a member of the PAPA system on 2m/70 cm and D-Star. I enjoy HF contests, chasing DX, and informal QSOs from time to time.

I recently got into Summits on the Air ("SOTA").  I activated my first summit on Christmas Eve, 2015 at Truinfo Lookout near Malibu, CA.  For portable antennas, I primarily use a SotaBeams 20m/40m linked dipole or, as a back-up, an end-fed half wave cut for 40 meters with a 9:1 unun, both elevated on a 31' Jackite telescopic fiberglass pole. I also have a 40 meter hamstick dipole that I use vertically from time to time (not nearly as good as the other two portable antennas).

Please QSL via LOTW as that is how I track my QSOs for awards. If you want a QSL card, please send yours with a self-addressed envelope.
