I have been an amateur for 27 years and earned my Novice when tested by WD8QFC (my elmer). One week later, I upgraded to the Technician license. I passed the General & Advanced Class in 1990 and the Extra class licensed in 2000.
I retired from the US Navy Reserves with 24+ years (1965-1989) with 2 years (1966-1968) active duty.
I retired with 36+ years from the US Army Corps Of Engineers. The first 25 years as a Hydrographer mapping the navigatable waters of Virginia and the last 11+ years as an Electronics Technician.
I work part-time (2003-2012)as a bench & field service technician with a local Motorola Service Center.
