My amateur radio interests are on all bands. I seem to enjoy 2,6 and 10 meters the best. I am always interested in talking with people that have a common sense technical knowledge of BASIC circuitry, because it is here where new applications can be discovered and applied. I have taught electronics to high school students for many years. When you have to answer those rediculous questions over and over again, it is then that you really must have an in depth understanding of the basics.
I have taught at Concord High School, Concord, NH. This was, incidentally, the home of Christa McAuliffe, the ill fated teacher in space. I knew her and we were friends.
Communications with satellites is also an interest. I try to add a new band about once every few years. I have recently completed construction of a 220 SSB and 1296 station. Good luck to all my amateur contacts!
I am now active on HF. I find its really a lot of fun. I am just working 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10m. Occasionally I operate 10 GHz., lasers, and LEDs. Its slow going.
(2/5/14 update) Lately now I am trying for worked all states on 6 and 10 meters, These would be my first WAS awards. I'm sure it'll take a while to get those last one or two states. Got to keep searching for that rare opening.... who knows. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. 73 all!!
