Thanks for checking my QRZ page. I go by my middle name Henry.
After retiring from Lincoln Financial Media (the old Jefferson Pilot Communications Company) in 2008, my XYL (Debbie) and I now live on the water near the Chesapeake Bay in the Northern Neck area of Virginia. I spent my whole life in Richmond, Virginia, but I am now where I have always wanted to be, having spent many summers on the Potomac River at my Grandmother's cottage when I was a young boy. It's a great place to now enjoy my lifelong hobby! The salt water really helps!
I am active on most all amateur bands from 1.8 through 1296 MHz, where my first love is contesting, chasing DX on CW and the technical side of the hobby. I have two sons, Ryan, W4RCB, Will, KR4OI and my XYL is WA4QOC.
