Received my first ticket on April 1, 2010. Prior to that I was a SWL for 50 years. I'm retired following a 35-year career as a electrical engineeer (BS/MS EE - Purdue University) and engineering division manager with the US Navy. My other activities include woodworking, working on computers, watching team sports involving a ball, fishing, and watching four grandsons grow up. I'm active in both the Daviess County Amateur Radio Club (KC9SFL) and the Vincennes Old Post Amateur Radio Society (W9EOC) in Knox County, Indiana:
Daviess County Amateur Radio Club
Bill (N9SEH), Paul (KB9TUO), Leo (N9LEO), Jim (KR9E), Bruce (KC9HTC),
Todd (N9EY), Jim (W9JDW), Ken (KC9TTR) and Gene (KC9TXZ)

Also do some communications work for emergency drills and during storms for the Daviess County Emergency Management Agency and maintain the EMA weather station for the northern portion of Daviess County. It's located on a mast a few feet off my back deck and data from it can be viewed at the website below:

I have been enjoying a few contests, working DX, and especially look forward to rag-chewing. I'm a semi-regular on the Over the Hill Gang net weekdays at 1430Z to 1530Z on 14.321 - stop in and say hello.
Preference is Logbook of the World for QSLs, but will send you a QSL card if one is received - SASE or Green Stamps NOT required for either USA or DX contacts. Cards are also returned via the Bureau plus Ham Radio Deluxe is used to submit my logs to eQSL(AG), QRZ.com, ClubLog.org, and HRDLog for those of you who use those online services.
Hope to meet you on the bands.
Note: if the chart below indicates that I am on the air using an FT-2000 (which I don't own),
then I am likely NOT on the air. HRD software's "demo" mode indicates an FT-2000.
