My amateur radio interests are on all bands. I seem to enjoy 2 and 6 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.
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 a year. 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 and 20 and 10m. Occasionally I operate 10 GHz. once a year in the summer contest. Its slow going.
(7/15/13 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!!
