Hi, and thanks for checking my page. I started in ham radio in high school (1968) in Maryland with the help of Bill Cole K3YBN. Bill was a metal shop teacher and held morse code class after school. To this day, morse code is still a lot of fun and I have made many QSO's which would not have been possible without CW mode! I caught the 2 meter and VHF weak signal bug while stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center near Chicago. Got active on 2M from Illinois and received 2M VUCC number 4. I have since obtained 6M VUCC working from eastern Maine.

I work as a tech support engineer for Agilent Technologies (soon to be Keysight Tech) out of my garage in what the XYL calls "the barn". It doubles as a ham shack and a place to destroy things. My interests are VHF oriented, mostly 6M until we have some tropo on 2M and 432. Those openings are very rare, and the northeast hams rarely point up this way. Weather in downeast Maine can be wild, lots of rain, snow, ice, wind, and frequent power outages. Thankfully we have a generator, and it has about 80 hours on it this winter. 

Ham radio has taught me a lot, and keeps me out of trouble. Not really, it presents a lot of trouble, but that's life, HI. Drop a line or I'll catch you on the bands. 73 de KT1R ex N9KC ex WN3KGC ex WA3KGC ex NNN0PVP -- XYL is KN1TME (yes, she knits!!!) ex- N9IGA
