I am a retired Police Sergeant from New Jersey. I was first licensed as a Novice Class in 1990 as KB2KGW. At that time I was introduced to the Amateur Radio Service by my next door neighbor and good friend N2HWL - Gerard P Draper who is now a Silent Key.
In 1993 the Novice Class gave way to the Technician-Plus Class. This was a written test with 5 word code so I went to the Manahawkin Amateur Radio Club in Manahawkin, NJ on a Sunday afternoon and took the appropriate element and passed. Today, I enjoy amateur radio and all it has to offer at the Amateur Extra Class level.
I am active in the OMIK Amateur Radio Association Inc., (OMIK - #1627), Martin County Amateur Radio Association (MCARA), Fort Pierce Amateur Radio Club (FPARC), Old Man International Sideband Society (OMISS - #7820), Martin County ARES, (MCARES), Digital Mode Club (DMC #06054), European PSK Club (EPC #19968), PODXS 070Club (POD # 1638), and the 30 Meter Digital Group (30MDG #6168).
I am also very much active with the ARRL Field Organization program in the Florida Southeastern Division. And presently serving in the following ARRL station appointed positions: Local Government Liaison (LGL), Official Observer (OO), Public Information Officer (PIO), Technical Specialist (TS), ARRL certified Field Examiner (FE), Instructor (I), Volunteer Examiner (VE), WL2K RMS HF - SYSOP (14.113 MHz), and a WL2K RMS PACKET VHF/UHF -SYSOP (145.030 MHz).
I am also a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Treasure Coast Chapter, and guided by their Code of Ethical Principles and Standards. The AFP exists to foster the development and growth of fundraising professionals and the profession, to promote high ethical behavior in the fundraising profession and to preserve and enhance philanthropy and volunteerism.
I have earned 3 college degrees: Bachelors of Science - Public Agency Service, Northern Arizona University (AZ), Associates Degree - Liberal Arts, Pima Community College (AZ), and an Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies, Ocean County College (NJ).
My favorite bands are in order 20m,15m, 17m, 12m, 10m, 80m, 40m, 6m, 2m, and 70cm. As the atmosphere improves I will keep looking for openings on all the bands.
